Donna Summer on Broadway


 Summer, the Broadway musical, gets an 8 rating. Though the storyline is weak, the vocal performances are superb and make the show worth attending. Summer brings back memories of the late 1970s and the early 1980s, reminding the audience of the extraordinary music of the Disco Queen. It was impossible to keep still as the vocalists sang Summer’s many hits.  I left the show wondering what it would be like to see a similar musical with the music of Etta James, Ruth Brown, Dionne Warwick, Whitney Houston, and the one that is being planned for Michael Jackson. `The shows would all be great if the storylines are well-written and keep focused on the great music.
