We were looking forward to reading the reviews of Suzanne Somers's one-woman Broadway show, The Blonde in the Thunderbird, since, well, yesterday, when we were reminded it was actually happening. Broadway.com gives a convenient sampling of the expectedly less-than-stellar reviews with a few examples from the show itself. Nothing really surprised us or intrigued us until we got to this tidbit, from the Broadway.com review:
Only rarely, as during a childlike rendition of "If I Only Had a Brain" punctuated with domestic-abuse sound effects, does The Blonde in the Thunderbird attain the sort of ill-conceived bathos that can lend such pieces exalted status among camp aficionados.
Um, we'll say! One ticket, please! Preferably free! Thank you!
