Prince Unzipped

My Prince review is drawing lots of fire over at the Times. I stand by my review: I’ve seen Prince multiple times over three decades, and this show felt flat for all kinds of reasons.  For reasons of space and decorum, I left out the part early in the show when he discovered his fly was coming unzipped — rather ironic, considering the peekaboo teasing quality of the show. The Artist covered the wardrobe malfunction adroitly: “Someone’s trying to make a guest appearance,” he quipped. “I didn’t have an opening act; now I do.” So perfect were those lines, I wonder if it was all planned.
