At last year’s Oscar ceremony, Lady Gaga belted out a medley of hits from The Sound of Music and THE WORLD LOST ITS DAMN MIND. It was magnificent! Majestic! Awe-inspiring! It showed hitherto unknown depth and range and finally made fans out of old people everywhere (including my mother!) who had previously dismissed her as nothing but a dolled-up ninny.
Flash forward one year later, and the cast of the Broadway musical have returned the favor with a mashup of Gaga’s greatest hits: “Judas,” “Edge of Glory,” “Paparazzi,” and “Bad Romance” – all done in The Sound of Music costumes, in character, and on the theater stage. It’s both a toe-tapping tribute to the singer and a fundraiser for one of Gaga’s favorite charities Oxfam, which helps eradicate poverty around the world. Good stuff!
