  1. Learning and practicing how to see musicals through the lens of the time period in which they were madr and released. Gaining the history of musicals background to apply to film analysis. Becoming aware of what to look for to identify different approaches of Directors.
  2. The Lists in Wednesday's Lecture Notes gives the impression that the named Adapted Broadway Musicals, are all inclusive. One VERY noticable musical is missing from page 5, Broadway Slowed Down Its Flow To Hollywoo, From 1982-2017. The Phantom of the Opera, 2004 "Phantom" seems hard to overlook. The iconic Broadway Musical production is a quality and satisfying film adaptation. The film version is done with visceral storytelling, lavish sets, and a production that I think, came close to doing the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic justice, save for what I think was the terrible casting of Patrick Wilson as Christine's Courtier-come-Husband. Gerard Butler, who played The Phantom on the London stage, is, well, Gerard Butler. Casically trained vocalist and actor, Emmy Rossum, portrays an impressively textured Christine. Her voice is angelic. Rossum is best known as Fiona on the former Netflix, now Showtime media property, Shameless, (1/11- Present, Season 8). Curated and reviewed by Terri Pieros Googling Broadway Musicals, Film Adaptations, 1987-2017, because I am curious as to how slow the slowdown really was. Oops!
  3. Two great examples of the type of musicals that I enjoy the most are Moulin Rouge and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. I think the most important attribute of musicals that I love is that the musical numbers aren't "pop-out" numbers, but instead are organic elements in the telling of the story. They are also musicals whose scripts are of the calibre of story telling found in strong non musical film. Then add creative, moving, well convieved, well performed, and well photographed musical numbers, then what do you have? True Movie Magic! That's my opinion. Also, both films are love stories, and I am not a fan of the Love Story genre, but these musicals got me to drink the Love Story Potion, bottles and bottles in fact! -Terri AKA. Our2RightFeet
