Yes, I broke down and bought tickets for the damn thing just to see Julie Taymor’s work before somebody else comes in and starts “improving” it. What I saw did not match any of the reviews or word-of-mouth I’d heard before. It’s not the greatest show ever, but hardly the worst thing. Check out my review on CultureVulture.net and let me know what you think.

Also, get a load of Annie Leibovitz’s photo spread in Vogue — the costumes (clothing + mask + sculpture + rigging) are spectacular. The few glimpses in the show of Swiss Miss (below), whom I describe as “a cross between Grace Jones, the Terminator, and a Swiss army knife,” left me wanting to see more more more.
