Theater Talk’s panel of critics review Broadway shows from the 2011 Spring season. They look at “The Mother****** With the Hat”, and why it surprised critics with it’s vibrant acting and strong dialog, though they focus on some of the weak points of Chris Rock’s acting. They discuss “Jerusalem” and focus on whether or not it truly is a modern day masterpiece, they talk about “Good People” and whether the plot is more intricate then it appears, as well as provide their critiques on some of the musicals such as “Anything Goes”, “Sister Act”, and “The Book of Mormon”.
