I also got to write about some of the book-to-film adaptations to watch out for this year (read: I got to watch The Great Gatsby trailer 15 times and call it ‘research’).
I’m actually fairly excited for Dorothy of Oz. Lea Michele (just her voice), Martin Short, Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammar, James Belushi, Hugh Dancy, Megan Hilty, Patrick Stewart AND Bernadette Peters all in an Oz-related film.
Unfortunately there’s the chance it will be a major let down. There’s also the problem of having to wait to see it on DVD because I’m not going to go sit and watch this alone in the cinema.

I’m not sure how I feel about this.
Actually, I know. I’m horrified. They’ve butchered it.
LEAVE ADELE ALONE, GLEE. I love you, but… Adele. She’s way too good for you. Sozzles.
The only thing that redeems Glee for me, and makes me kinda want to eventually re-start watching from where ever I gave up is the music. I do love some of the cast members (especially these two), and the guest stars so I can forgive the (lack of) storyline.
THIS IS AWFUL. It starts off well but as soon as they get to Jonathan Groff’s verses I just trials off to some bad school choir a capella version.
Not a mega fan of Chis Colfer but this speech was really well done. However, the best part was the cast and crew’s reaction … especially Lea Michele who starts weeping as soon as he steps on stage.
Oh theatre people, you never fail to amuse me. (Yes, I should be considered one but I really don’t live up to the stereotype.)
