With wine in my hand and popcorn in my bowl! Hell Yes!!
Was it good? Kinda. Maria was VERY miscast.
But before you go and badmouth the live filmed musical, let's me point out some things:
- The stage musical is different than the movie
- it got HUGE ratings
Why is number 2 important? It means there will be more musicals!!
Next year, NBC is staging Peter Pan. It's not my favorite show. Tinkerbell is played by a light... the title role is almost always played by a woman... But it's getting done. I'm DYING to see who they cast.
Succumbing to the pressure, FOX is going to stage Grease. I just about fell out of my chair with glee! I'm exceited to see what they'll do with it.
Then NBC did it again. They announced The Music Man!!! I LOVE that show! I've also seen some wish lists Harold Hill. Seth McFarlane? YES!!
So much better than Matthew Broderick!
