As any theatre kid would, I have been looking at any and any new information of the highly anticipated “INTO THE WOODS” film! Recently, Disney realesed a teaser screenplay for INTO THE WOODS. I’ll try not to give too much away but there are a few noticible, yet understandable differences. I’ll do my best and give away just one spoiler that the Narrater is not a character in this movie, but it is the Baker doing the narration, which I found to be an interesting choice. It makes sense with at the Finale, we all know the Baker retells his story to his son with a heart breaking moment. “Sometime’s people leave you halfway through the wood. Do not let it greif you, No one leaves for good. You are not alone. No one is alone. Hold him to the light no. Let him see the glow. Things will be alright now. Tell him what you know..” I’m so excited for this movie! Are you?
an oldie but a goodie 🙂
Either way I’m very excited!
As many of us theatre kids know- Cats is already a very popular musical, and even people who don’t know the musical can easily belt “Memory” off the top of their heads. When I saw this post on Broadway.com I knew I HAD to comment on it. This is very intresting to me because I’m currently in a production of Cats. But I just don’t know if the average audience member would appreciate Cats as much as the next theatre kid would. If you are familiar with Cats– you know that its is very different from anything you’ve ever seen because there is no plot at all- just random stories about random cats…do you think audiences are ready for that on the big screen? On the other hand- the most recent movie- musical phenomenon was Les Miserables which was very popular with theatre kids- and non theatre kids as well- and maybe that’s just because Les Mis is flawless and Aaron Teviet and Eddie Redmayne are just adorable…
Well, what do you think? Will Cats sell in movie theatres”? Are you excited for it?
SIDE NOTE: The next movie musical is Into the Woods which Disney is producing and I’m absolutely so excited…I think theatres making a popular comeback tbh and I couldn’t be happier (“simply couldn’t be happier….”) haha!
If you’ve never heard of “A Very Potter Musical” or AVPM on YouTube- you’re def missing out. Even if you don’t like Harry Potter- YOU’LL love it. This is created by Darren Criss (currently Blaine Anderson in Glee) who also plays Harry Potter! This is how he got famous too 🙂 WATCH IT.
Loud, dark, intense, and did I mention loud? The bus-and-truck tour of Jekyll and Hyde brings the Frank Wildhorn musical back to Broadway, whether Broadway wants it or not. Constantine Maroulis and Deborah Cox are talented, charismatic leads, but their combined efforts cannot lift this soggy affair from the quagmire of mediocrity into which it quickly sinks.

In an interview with CBC Radio, Lloyd Webber let slip that he was “very excited” about acquiring the rights to “that movie School of Rock.” The British composer explained that he might expand on the music portion of the film when he brings it to the stage: “There may be songs for me in it, but its obviously got songs in it as it stands.”

The story follows two young, fame-seeking kids trying to live out their dream on the strip. Drew the singer and Sherrie the actress meet at The Bourbon Room, a place where they both work while trying to realize their dream. There is the usual falling in love and miscommunication that leads to the ultimate breaking apart, followed closely by the realization that they were both wrong. However, the way Rock of Ages presented it is so fresh and fun that it’s easy to overlook this formulaic love story and enjoy the show.
Lonny – the narrator and part owner of The Bourbon Room – is quite hilarious. Regina, a protestor who is trying to save the strip from being torn down by a pair of German…
