Where-To-Go Wednesday - Amazing Grace the Musical
What: Amazing Grace the Musical
Where: The Nederlander Theater
208 W. 41st Street
New York, New York
Who: 13 and up
Our view: Amazing Grace is the story of John Newton, the man who wrote the song Amazing Grace. If you are looking for a light hearted little musical, this is not it. If you like your musicals, with a little bit of depth to them, you will probably enjoy this show. It is actually a bit more enjoyable than the title and premise might imply. The acting and singing are all very good. The songs are enjoyable for the most part although not very memorable except for, of course, Amazing Grace. We would not recommend it for young children who would probably be bored and might be disturbed by some elements of the plot including about the treatment of slaves.

And that's our view. Tune in to tomorrow's Talking Topics post where we will be talking more about Amazing Grace the Musical.
