Opening: Glory Days Hopes For Glory Night

Opening: Glory Days Hopes For Glory Night

Glory Days -- the smallest and final new musical to open during Broadway's 2007-08 Theatrical Season -- gets its 90 minutes of glory this evening at Rialto's Circle In The Square Theatre.

With book by James W. Gardiner and score by Nick Blaemire, the little tuner is about the unlikeliest of all Great White Way contenders this year. Helmed by acclaimed DC director Eric D. Schaeffer from the area's Signature Theatre, this transfer stars Steven Booth, Andrew C. Call, Adam Halpin and Jesse J.P. Johnson. All the young actors originated their roles in the Signature production, and with the exception of Call, each is making his Broadway debut.

Will the critics be heaping generous helpings of glory on what The New York Times 's Campbell Robertson has described as "the nethermost dog of all," or will its days be numbered?

Tune in tomorrow as I provide my critics' capsule, along with my own SOB Review.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

I predict a quick death to this show...The lyrics sound painfully awful- they actually rhymed Jewish with "blue-ish"?

BroadwayBaby, I will be surprised if it lasts through the end of the month.
