I missed seeing the acclaimed new Off-Broadway musical “Nobody Loves You” when I was in NYC last week. #Bummer! The show follows a grad student who auditions for – and surprisingly finds himself cast on – a reality TV dating show, in an attempt to win back his ex-girlfriend. The spoofy show skewers and celebrates lots of the stuff we love about reality TV shows where people get eliminated, or date, or hookup drunkily in hot tubs or… all of the above.
Here, via The NY Times, watch the fab Rory O’Malley (of Book of Mormon fame) sings “The Twitter Song” from NLY. If you’ve ever Tweeted along with your fave show, and/or dealt with cocky know-it-all fans, you’ll relate. #Nailedit
Here’s an extended look at the upcoming musical, and it’s a knockout. Viewers are taken behind the scenes, where we see Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, and Amanda Seyfried singing and explaining the process of creating the movie. Director Tom Hooper made the rather radical decision to have the cast sing live as they taped, as opposed to pre-recording the music and then lipsyncing to the playback, as has been done since the dawn of movie musicals. The result, everyone agrees, is something raw, powerful, and above all, true. I think this is going to be my favorite movie OF ALL TIME. Anyone else excited?
Let me try this again with the proper trailer. Give me Amanda Seyfried over Claire Danes any day of the week. This modern, yet-again retelling of Les Miserables stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda, and Anne Hathaway as Fantine. Diehards may have an issue with her version of “I Dreamed a Dream” heard here in the teaser trailer. Thoughts?
