I have been a fan of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very bad Day for years. That said, I am unfortunately one who seldom ever appreciates a change like this. The libretto is certainly well done but somehow it doesn't match especially the image I have of Alexander. That is not the fault of the writers, that is just the way I work.
