Hopefully this blog will get back to normal next week when the kids are done with this show, my directing is no longer needed, and my fingers aren’t required for lighting!
005. I love musicals but I don’t watch enough of them.
I’ve seen a couple of professional shows and I’m very familiar with the most current, popular musicals but I have only recently got round to checking major classics like Phantom of the Opera off my to-watch list. It is a serious problem. Though, for some reason, people seem to think I am a musicals expert. Like I exude this vibe that screams “THIS KID IS A BROADWAY BABY!”
006. Wicked is my favourite musical.
It is the most professional show I’ve seen - in the way that it was put on by one of the foremost theatre groups in Australia (pretty much our Broadway) but completely regardless of that the music and the story and everything about it is perfect to me. It was probably the first musical I invested myself in and really got into - aside from Disney.
007. I LOVE DISNEY RENAISSANCE FILMS!!!!
Words cannot describe the love I have for the Disney renaissance era. I grew up with them and I know every line and every note.
008. All I need to do is buy the Lion King on DVD and my Disney renaissance collection will be complete.
I was really disappointed with how they had to wrap it all up. It is such a shame that they had to cancel the show, it is so great and original. Originality is perhaps one of the biggest absences in television. Except for Glee, which is original and amazing. And Chuck, which is also original and amazing.
