Possible Future Topics--For my reference

Possible future topics

Old Vs. New: Jesus Christ Superstar

Must discuss BEFORE Joseph movie?
random close ups.
HS tapes--Kara C's dad did as good a job at least!

Song by song comparison

character: head to head

Bias: What I saw first, nostalgia

Other Old Vs New:
-Music Man
-Bye Bye Birdie
-Spamalot vs Monty Python the the Holy Grail----this one will be difficult to impossible. Not quite apples to oranges but something like...
-R&H Cinderellas (3! Julie Andrews, Lesley Ann Warren...Brandy.)

Best stage-to-screen adaptations
-Music Man (original)

-My Fair Lady?

-not sure: Kiss Me Kate...West Side Story?...

R&H: Oklahoma--so much cut from stage to screen. Hard to compare.
Sound of Music--scale! (same with JCS? Not quite...? nothing with which to compare Sound of Music movie)

Originally meant for screen
-Mary Poppins
-Singing in the Rain
-Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
