By the time you read this I will have gotten back from the theater where I went to see Aida, a production I've never seen. We trot out every few months to a local theater that specializes in mostly musicals. And it's always a gamble since you don't get to see trailers with a theatrical production. But I like the adventure and surprise of that.
The last play we saw was Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, which I was rather surprised the theater had chosen. It's been around a long time and I was afraid it would be rather dated. I also was of the opinion that the storyline was a bit sexist (there was kidnapping involved if you haven't seen it). But after expressing this opinion to some Facebook friends, they convinced me that I might be looking at things the wrong way and that the kidnapping had been set up in such a way that there was nothing malicious about it.
I'm not sure if any of you have ever seen it, but here's the trailer from the 1954 movie:
Have you seen it? If so, what did you think? And if you haven't seen it, what's either your favorite play or your favorite musical (movies count). Or...do you not like musicals at all?
I'll check back in later to see what everyone had to say.
