We saw it. We fell asleep. But we were very tired and not Schubert connoisseurs.

The show got out of the gate with good energy but there were stretches where I can understand why one's mind would wander. I think Schubert's Austrian songs (lieder) are a hard sell to today's audiences.

I would say you absolutely nailed it. Goofy, disjointed, well-intentioned and occasionally poignant. Talented and serious musicians but as actors? Not so much. But you have to give them credit for dreaming it up, non? I gather one of the three is the son of a musicologist. Definitely totally original. I am very glad that I saw it and it has stuck with me.

When reviews of a play are boffo and my own take is tepid, I wonder what I might have missed. I've learned to write what I feel, even though I might sound like a contrarian.
And I certainly give them credit for thinking it up then figuring out a way to stage it. Thanks for the feedback.
