Loved the Cast Album. (Sorry kids, there isn't a soundtrack yet.)
Loved the show.
Looking forward to the movie.
Did anyone else "Moo" when they saw the show? We saw it at the Orange County Performing Arts Center (with the pastor of our church and his lovely wife - they both loved it!). I listened to the CD a lot and I just assumed the "Moo" was something you were supposed to do, an audience interaction. I "Moo"ed really loud and people started laughing and "Moo"ing with me.
"George Bush... is only for now."
Just because it's gone doesn't mean I changed my mind!
Anyone know if all the songs are going to be in it? If so, it may be a long movie...
I've been following the random internet tidbits pretty closely for a while and from what I understand almost all of the songs/material is there in one form or another. They have cut the songs "Christmas Bells" and "Contact". They have also turned some originally sung moments into spoken dialogue, but it's almost all there.
They made the right choice not casting Daphne (original Mimi). She just wouldn't have worked in a filmed version. There are lines in the show about how young Mimi looks and that would have been a joke with Daphne on screen. Don't believe me? Take a look at the film Wild Things, she plays one of the main cops in that film. She couldn't pull off looking like a convincing teenager then and that was several years ago. Wether Rosario was the right replacement I have yet to decide, need to hear her sing first.
Not only that, but she was also pregnant when they started production. Try to imagine a pregnant Mimi doing her "handcuff dance". Pretty funny if you ask me.
Supposedly, there's an mp3 of Rosario Dawson singing "Without You" floating around somewhere. I haven't found it yet, but supposedly she's pretty good.
Well, the "other" guy was an original cast member. Plus, that romance is the central plot point of the story- the romances of the other characters are there, but not as central as their relationships are mostly established at the beginning of the play.
