#263234 Stephen Ward - The Musical

Posted CaityGlinda on 25 April 2013 - 05:00 PM

The main problem I have with this, is that I haven't got a clue who Stephen Ward is and I've never heard of the Profumo Scandal until now, and I like to consider myself quite a cultured 18 year old. I can't imagine I'm the only person who will have almost no interest in this show because of that reason. I imagine that young adults aren't the target audience, which is a shame.

I also have mixed feelings. The live singing makes it sound much more raw and real, however as others have said, it highlights some of the weaker voices. Despite that, I do like how Sam Barks doesn't sing On My Own perfectly, with some notes more spoken than sung as it shows emotion. Lately, I've found that Eponines use the song to show off their vocal ability a bit and forget the true meaning and emotion of the song.
Russell Crowe has left me extremely underwhelmed and didn't seem menacing or very authoritative in that clip at all. Javert is my favourite character in the entire of musical theatre so I will be gutted if it's not done right.

I think the singing will sound better once we get used to it throughout the film. I also thought Eddie Redmayne was wonderful, however I'm always going to say that as he is rather easy on the eye!

This link was posted on Twitter of a new trailer! Can't say I'm impressed with Russell Crowe's singing but everyone else sounds great. I'm really excited for this!

#243057 Best Ever Musical Adaptation

Almost every musical is adapted from something! Whether it be a film, a book, a play, someone's life story... I challenge people to come up with a musical that isn't an adaptation (or jukebox...)

I've had this discussion before and the main one I came up with was Next to Normal. Another would be Hair.

#212669 Weird Code Appearing On Posts

Is anyone else seeing weird '<br></br>&*(%$@%%@$' type code appearing on posts, particularly quotes? It appeared on my signature too when I tried to edit it the other day. I'm struggling to read some posts.
