Annette ★★★★

what a cool & unconventional musical working w some great themes: the exploitation of children (both in the tragedy in love and the projection of the parents’ lost opportunities), tacky media portrayal serving as a critique, intense juvenile humor, and toxic masculinity.

the script is so insanely glib that it keeps me from loving it (mostly bc of the themes attached to them). it has this inconsistent yet repetitive dialogue that makes the musical sorta drag. & i will also be seeing baby annette in a nightmare soon.
