The Broadway season, so far, has consisted of almost nothing but revivals but that being said at least they saved the best revival for last when Carousel opened last night at the Imperial Theater...where Phantom played forever and where I found a mask under my seat. This marvelous show is by far the best musical to open this season simply because it contains the best songs ever written and has dancing we no longer see these days that stop the show 2 or 3 times. Yes, the show has its faults but nothing should keep you from running out and buying tickets today
