I jest you not!
When I first saw an email for "An Officer & a Gentleman - The Musical" in my inbox, I deleted it without opening thinking the email was junk. Now that I've received another one I've taken the time to open it and cannot believe that this is for real ... the movie, An Officer & a Gentleman as a musical. Seriously?
Maybe people had the same reaction to hearing Victor Hugo's Les Miserables and T S Eliot's Old Possums Book of Practical Cats were now going to be rocking the West End as musicals? I'm not sure. I just want to laugh to think this movie will be played out live on stage. Probably because I can't stand the movie in the first place; over-hyped schmalzy 80's love story with a huge power ballad starring Richard Gere, who I still can't see what all the fuss is about with him.
What about you? Do you love a musical? Or are you the kind of person who grabs the remote and fast forwards through "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"?
