Wonderland: Will it Close?

All reviews point to a big YES.

Am I agreeing? No I am not.  As a friend of mine put it, it was in it's worst form on Broadway. And we both agreeed- Frank Wildhorn has a consistent characteristic for a majority of his musicals (my friend says all of them)- they are good in preview & concept cast, but slowly dwindle and downgrade as they near Broadway.

Now, I love the concept cast. Janet Dacal is one of my favorite actresses since her Carla in "In the Heights", so I of course wish the best for her. I think, with all the great talent that is the Wonderland cast, the plot of it all is what is hurting this production. The concept cast album shows the great potential of the this show on the musical level. And yes, not everyone will agree, but I feel its good music to listen to. Shame the story never worked out its kinks. Should this show still close, I hope the actors are recognized for the good work they did, rather than what they were given for material.
