Got the news last night that prolific composer Michel Legrand has passed away. I loved his work, especially after seeing his film “The Umbrellas of Cherborg.”
One lesson you should take from my love for Michel Legrand is that you should always take my show reviews with a big fistful of salt. I gave a bad review Friday, which I do not often write. Back in 2002, well before I started this blog, I saw Mr. Legrand’s Broadway show “Amour.” Predictably I LOVED it. It closed after only 17 performances. Obviously the rest of the world disagreed with me. We can all have our opinions about entertainment. Start your own blog and don’t count on mine. Godspeed Michel Legrand.
