I have a free weekend ahead of me and need to shut down my brain for a bit, so: Please sell me on your favourite musicals!
@daftwullie feels like I'd lose my queer history badge if I hadn't seen that one - but great sell nonetheless!
@rixx The Blues Brothers. There are Illinois Nazis getting run into a river and crashed into a Winnebago.
@rixx Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog! Wonderfully satirized cliché characters, but mostly because of the catchy earworms. And Nathan Fillion! And it's available on YouTube!
@daniel_bohrer Good one, it's time again! Used to be that I could watch Dr Horrible nearly weekly, which went down to monthly, then yearly, and now I'm pretty good with 2-3 years of pause in between tbh
@rixx "The Guy Who Didn't Like Musicals" by Team StarKid (aka StarKid Productions).
- appropriate for spoopy time
- relatively small prodution
- off Broadway
- freely available online (at least on YouTube)
- contemporary humor
I'm not much of a seller. Only things I can really say are that I really liked it, laughed my butt off at some parts, and Team StarKid (re)ignited my interest in musicals.
@rixx Hairspray (the 2007 musical movie). It has wonderful characters, lovely dancing and John Travolta in a female role. Great fun!
