If only what happened in Budapest stayed in Budapest.
I have nothing in particular against the city, really. I quite enjoyed my one visit there many years ago. There was a nice castle, I think.
But it was in Budapest, it seems, that “Rocktopia,” a garish and gaudy mashup of classical chestnuts and classic rock anthems, was first born in 2016. Now it is installed for six weeks at the Broadway Theatre — though it seems more fitting for Las Vegas, the city that spawned the marketing slogan lampooned above.
