THE CAPEMAN NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: August 14, 2010
Did He Like It?
Originally on Broadway in 1998, Simon's musical THE CAPEMAN tells the true story of a Nuyorican street gang member whose story exploded on to the front pages of the tabloids in 1959, ultimately revealing the cultural and racial tensions beneath the surface of New York in that era. THE CAPEMAN's score is a dazzling blend of Latin music, Doo Wop and artful ballads to tell a gripping and controversial New York story.
‘Capeman’ Outdoors, Starring the City
By BEN BRANTLEY
Published: August 18, 2010
"Could it be that the Capeman — who for 12 long years has been wandering like a Flying Dutchman through the imaginations of many a New York theatergoer — has finally found his natural home? The title character from “The Capeman,” Paul Simon’s musical retelling of a street-gang murder from 1959, seemed anything but at home when he showed up on Broadway in 1998 in a big, stultifying musical that seemed both overdirected and directionless. You had seldom seen a man or a show look so damned uncomfortable, and uncomfortably damned. "
