HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NICK JONAS!
The one reason why I said he was “cartoonish” is because when I saw another classic show, my dad had mentioned that he thought the lead male was being this way and Nick reminded me of that. If his character is supposed to be eager, then yes, Nick did exactly that and a great job.
Whether I’m used to seeing him as a Jonas Brother or not, I watched the show from the point of view of how I watch every Broadway show. I’ve seen almost thirty musicals and plays and every time I go to one, I critique it as a performer and as an audience member. Saying that I didn’t find it appealing because I’m a Jonas Brothers fan is like telling me I didn’t find Tony Shalhoub appealing in “Lend Me a Tenor” because I was used to seeing him as Monk on TV.
I was simply just putting my opinion out there of the show. Also, I was probably one of the only girls in that audience that was there to see what this musical was about and not just there to only see Nick Jonas.
