“Rebecca” vs. “The Pirate Queen”

Did anyone else see the new Rebecca Broadway poster and think of The Pirate Queen? Because, I did. I’m having a hard time thinking they aren’t the same “type” of musical.

The only music I’ve heard from Rebecca is “She’s Invincible” that plays on repeat on the website. I will say it’s catchy but the song is now playing on repeat in my head (and I’m not too thrilled about it).

We all love Stephanie Block, but she couldn’t keep The Pirate Queen from planking, so it looks like Sierra Boggess (another Broadway leading lady everyone loves) will have to keep Rebecca alive until word-of-mouth kicks in and hopefully really positive reviews. And who knows, maybe the Tony Awards will love Rebecca.

There’s probably no more similarities between the shows, but some how I’ve equated Rebecca as the new The Pirate Queen of this season. Let’s hope that it makes it past The Pirate Queen’s 32 previews and 85 performances.

What do you think?
