Czytam sobie, że „Joker: Folie à Deux” ma być tzw. jukebox musical i przyznam szczerze, że mój entuzjazm opada. O co chodzi? Jukebox musical to taki, w którym większość piosenek to znane i lubiane utwory muzyki popularnej. No ja miałem jednak nadzieję na utwory oryginalne. I jasne, fajnie będzie usłyszeć jak Hildur Guðnadóttir przearanżowuje popowe hity i nadaje im tego swojego niepokojącego stylu. Ale czy nie fajniej byłoby wykorzystać jej muzyczny talent do stworzenia czegoś nowego? Jak sądzicie? Czekacie na drugiego „Jokera”?

Time for some #MusicalMusings on the current production of #SweeneyTodd on Broadway with Aaron Tveit and Sutton Foster.

  1. This might have become my second favorite production of Sweeney Todd (first will always be Patti and Michael). But I get why some people are grumpy about it: it is capital C CAMPY. They emphasize and reveal comedic moments, which makes for a very different overall experience, coming off as far more unhinged, but also not quite the classic Greek chorus tragedy of fate most productions emphasize. But like...oh my gosh I loved the camp of it soooo much and it made for a unique production

  2. Yes, Aaron Tveits is incredibly hot and it finally makes sense why Mrs. Lovett would be obsessed with him. And Sutton Foster's Lovett is HORNY for him and commits to the camp 230%. But like, yes, I also would rub my feet on his chest and would feel hot and bothered watching him get aggressively murderous...this may have awakened something in me 😅

  1. Joe Locke is so freaking tiny! And has a great voice! Still building his skill, but would love to see him do more Broadway or movie musicals. Did great as Tobi.

  2. We got to see the understudy for Joanna, Mia Pinero, and she revealed entirely new aspects of the role too. She plays her as unhinged and traumatized, which, of course Joanna would be. So many play her as flat and delicate and helpless but pretty, but Mia gives her agency while also being aware of how horrifying her circumstances are.

  3. This production actually put a lot more dance and choreography into it than other productions and it was a great way to use a smaller stage to still create the feel of bustle, chaos, and hungry mob that is usually done through other types of choreography. It also led to gorgeous uses of lighting and fantastical backing ensemble moments, such as allowing the visualizing of the masquerade in retelling Lucy's fate.

  1. Sutton Foster is a brilliant comedic musical actor. I think I will watch anything she plays a comedic role in going forward. Knowing she's going to be compared to legends like Angela Lansbury and Patti Lupone, she makes her own mark on the role in a way that's incomparable to them and fully her own.

  2. I was skeptical of Aaron Tveit because he was making unusual performance choices as Sweeney early on. Much more flat than many others at first. But the real test of a Sweeney comes at Epiphany - how does one bring him to life through the madness. Tveit's voice is so pretty, I couldn't see how he would do it without the growl, but then he nailed the piece, coming to life with such a intense of edge of determined threat.

  3. My one big complaint: they didn't do Judge Turbin's "Mea Culpa" song. Most productions drop this because of how discomforting and explicitly pedaphilac it is. I do suspect it wouldn't match this production's tone, but kinda surprised it didn't dare for this piece

The latest Broadway production of “Merrily We Roll Along” is as good as everyone says. The main trio are terrific together, which makes the part where they aren’t that much more painful. The “Not a Day Goes By” reprise (preprise?) remains one of the biggest gut punches in musical theater history.

Just learned that the iconic song "Tomorrow" from the musical "Annie" was originally intended for a musical based on... the classic sci-fi story "Flowers for Algernon".

Whiskey tango foxtrot?

It totally works. Also, fun fact about Charles Strouse (author of Annie) - he got the funding for "Bye, Bye Birdie" only from the song "Put on a Happy Face." From what I understand, it was the only song ready to present to backers.

Saw the Moulin Rouge #musical at the China Theatre in #Stockholm. It's an amazing production. Extremely lavish. Such an enormous amount of work and talent and stage resources put in by such a huge group of people. And all of this in service of a story that was completely cliché and hackneyed already at the time when the musical is set. You need to be ten years old or less to follow it with interest. I was simply embarrassed.

All will be brilliant I'm sure.
