A Trip to the Theatre


Yesterday I finally got to see a live production of The Addams Family Musical and it was so much fun! Carrie Hope Fletcher was playing Wednesday, and dear gods, that girl has an amazing voice. Here's a video she did with Andrew Lippa of her performing 'Pulled'. In comparison with the Broadway run, Wednesday kept her braids, and Lucas is a bit more... I want to say jock-like than the adorable nerd who wore a Gryffindor tie to meet his girlfriend's parents. It's not bad, I just personally prefer nerd!Lucas. The whole cast was amazing though, and I really wish I had been able to stage door. Maybe when it comes to Glasgow, if I get a ticket for that run of the tour.

I've also been checking out Emerald City, NBC's newest adaptation of the Oz stories. I have to say that I really like it. It's once again a darker look on the stories, but in a rare turn? The Tip/Ozma story is one of the lead ones, and it's played quite seriously. Actually, it's played as a trans story and I am hard pressed to think of one of them in any other fantasy based show at the moment. Tip is my favourite character, with Jack and West tied for second place. I like Dorothy, but I feel like a lot of her story is quite predictable, if only because her story has been played out so many times in other versions. I'm not sure if there's going to be a second season, but I hope there is. My main hope for it is Tip and Jack regaining their friendship - they both seem to miss the other.

As for life in general... Eh, not much has been happening. I still need to make the sales posts, I just seem the lack the energy to do... well, anything as of late. Need to see about fixing that.

And now? Now I am going to go for a nap. Because I am tired.
