Billie Eilish wants to write a musical
 Feb 19 2024, 12:41:14 PM

She should adapt Poor Things as a musical. Chavkin as director. Do we see the vision? Where do I sign?

I think people always talk about Meryl as a Sally, but I think she's more of a Phyllis.

Apparently Leslie Manville is a trained classical soprano so she's now my choice for Sally.  One of our greatest living actresses.

I do think they should cast older. I think people just looked older in 71 (all the booze, cigarettes, and lead).  I think actors in their 80's are much too old however. I think mid-60's is the age cap.

I think Spielberg directed the f*ck out of West Side Story and I do think the material would be a good choice for him. He's

She's Italian. My bad in describing her as LatinX. Should have said, Mediterranean. Still, she's gorgeous as she is. I still don't see why she was whitened up. No reason to do it and it makes her look awkwardly unnatural.

Or the perfect one.

Well I think he's also just not a good enough director for this material (I would argue that he's actually a very bad director). As an artist, I don't think he's... a very deep thinker.

Looks terrible. This flat, melodramatic, digital, video game look that all big movies have adopted in recent years needs to end. It's just awful. Chu is a terrible director and such a dull choice to direct this too.

Wished this ended on the scene where they sneak the booze into bed, making their drinking addiction almost like a sexual fetish for the two of them.  Would've been such a dark, interesting note to end on. Mutually assured destruction.

Kelli and Brian are incredible in this show.  Great performances from them.  They try their best with the material they've been given.  The songs don't seem to really do anything or go anywhere although they *sound* kind of

Shockingly bad casting.

Idk I think Here We Are sounds more golden age and Square One sounds a little more modern (and much less random). But anyways...

Is the show not a musical comedy? I think Here We Are sounds much more like an old fashioned musical comedy.

Sondheim/Ives HERE WE ARE @ The Shed
 Oct 29 2023, 12:15:42 PM

It wouldn't be the first time that the title of a Sondheim show is mentioned several times IN the show.  It actually seems like a Sondheimy thing to do.  I found the constant repeating of that line jarring next to the pretty random title of Here We Are.  It also seems that Sondheim wished for the title to be Square One.

Some more thoughts:

Here We Are is such a bad title.  Square One is obviously better suited to the show, especially since it's said in the show several times.

I was also hoping that this would take a much darker, horror tone in the second act and have a much less hopeful ending. Turning The Exterminating Angel into a sort of musical comedy is... a choice.

Very sad how afraid Ives is of really going after the rich. It comes off as a light teasing, whic

It bothers me how ashamed this is of being surrealist. It overexplains everything instead of just letting the weird stuff happen for us to then interpret. A lot of stuff in the book really doesn't work, especially in the second act and it misses the point of the two Bunuel films it pulls from.

It winds up being anti-poor people, pro-rich which really sucks. The satire falls completely flat. Very right-wing, surprisingly. A lot of the cast is very good, but doesn't make the mate

Sondheim/Ives HERE WE ARE @ The Shed

Just got out of the show and... yeah idk.  Some great stuff in the first act and the set is really great.  Would it be crazy if I said that Ives simply isn't an interesting enough writer for this? His book doesn't seem as unhinged and funny as Sondheim's score.  Too much logic in this Bunuel adaptation.

I'll share some more of my thoughts when I make it home.
