Today I watched Memphis, Victor/Victoria, and Bye Bye Birdie, the latter two being the movies (BBB being the 1995 movie - I didn't know Jason Alexander could sing!)

Memphis was really good, but none of the songs stuck out to me, though that may just be a consequence of watching too many shows back to back and not letting them linger. Victor/Victoria was quite funny. BBB was fine. Enjoyable, but nothing special.

The next shows I watched were 42nd Street, Gypsy, Kiss Me Kate, and She Loves Me, all of which I could write up about if anyone wants to know.

Tomorrow's the last day of the trial, where I'll probably squeeze in Jesus Christ Superstar and Carousel.

Someone put together like 1/3 of a Muppets Jesus Christ Superstar which was pretty tight
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.

So I thought I posted in this topic already but apparently I haven't. Back when my sister was in high school they did Oklahoma! for their musical one year and I remember their reaction at first was "what the hell is this, why" but she said by the end of it that they found it extremely fun to do.

Either the year before or the year after, they did Hello, Dolly which thinking back on it, strikes me as a show that might just barely be too saucy for a high school production, but also not really.

I've seen Hello, Dolly and don't think it's too saucy for high school? At least, I guess, not in modern times. It's certainly no Spring Awakening!

Oklahoma! seems like a show that's more fun to do than to watch.

This is my impression of musical theater in general. I'm not interested in watching any, but I can definitely see the appeal of beltin' it out to a captive audience.

I think I'm projecting here because I do remember the handful of years back where the drama teacher scaled back/censored some of the scenes from the stage version of Grease because it felt nebulously too saucy for our sleepy little town, so I would have thought Hello Dolly might have fallen into the same category somehow. But yeah by modern standards it is certainly very tame.

Watched Jesus Christ Superstar today, which was a recording of the Arena tour, which was very clearly how it was meant to be staged, as a huge rock concert, and not a Broadway show, so that was a good choice.
