    Great article! I don’t know much about theater but I love the show and appreciated all these insights.

    It should be pointed out that the series is *nominally* musical. Its hardly equivalent to having to slog your way through ‘Les Miserables’, for example. The music is applied with a light touch. The show is 4/5ths dark absurdist comedy that contains enough ‘heightened reality’ that the interjection of the occasional musical number isn’t out of place. If you’re unfamiliar with the show do yourself a favor and Google the latest Rachel Bloom show-stopper tune “You Stupid Bitch” from the last episode. I cannot imagine another network show that would dare to feature that song.
