show business – the road to broadway

show business – the road to broadway
October 13, 2007 MICHAEL KNUDSEN

hey hey! today i did a whole lot of nothing which was refreshing for a change but i did manage to have brunch with some of my blogger comrades including – cindy, candy, sasha, and david – it’s always nice to get together with other people in the same boat – we laughed a lot and of course got in a lot of ‘high school’ type gossip – since really sometimes blogging feels like being right back in high school!

yesterday i received a preview copy of show business: the road to broadway and i was super excited since i meant to catch the documentary when it was making rounds in theaters (it lands in stores this coming tuesday oct 16th) i tossed it on this afternoon – oh my gosh – i loved it! it follows four broadway shows from the start of rehearsals in the summer of ’03 – up until & past the tony awards the following spring in ’04 – the four shows included avenue q, wicked, taboo, and caroline, or change – i’m ashamed to admit i’ve only see ‘caroline’ when it played here in los angeles (read my review) i’d still love to see wicked & avenue q – and after seeing this movie – i realized i should’ve have flown to NYC to catch taboo – what a shame that show closed so early – and star euan morton is like beyond adorable! i’d highly recommend seeing this if you’re a theater fan at all (the trailer is posted below) it covered so many angles – i was engrossed & wrapped up in all the drama on the great white way! (still the thing i miss most about living in new york!) popbytes over & out for tonight – i’ll check you all tomorrow – xxoo!
