As any musical theatre fan already knows, the big budget film adaptation of Les Miserables is coming to theatres in just one short month. In preparation for the big event, I assembled a panel of experts (well, opinionated theatre people) to discuss the modern rejuvenation of the movie musical. I'm joined by returning podcaster Jessica and first-timers Spencer, Jackie, and Brian for a conversation about what makes for a good film adapatation of a hit stage show, as well as a frank discussion of the successes and failures of the various musical films released since 2003 Best Picture-winner Chicago.
Also, I am looking to really increase the podcast presence on this blog in the coming months, so any feedback about it is greatly appreciated. Let me know if you like the long format or would prefer shorter installments, and any suggestions for podcast topics are always welcome.
Enjoy, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
