1.  What did you last have to eat?

2.  What one good thing happened this week?

3.  Sun/Clouds or both?

4.  What celebrity would you trade a day for if you could and why? 
(Replace celebrity for anyone on this planet if you want).

5.  Do you call your evening meal dinner or supper?

I love Evita.  I've seen the show hundreds of times.  As with most plays, the movie is pure cr@p.  It hurts me to hear people who have only seen the movies talk about how much they HATE Evita, A Chorus Line, etc.  Go see the play and THEN talk about it.  The movies are dreadful and, IMO, comparing them is the same as comparing potato buds to homemade mashed potatoes.  They're just not the same thing.

"JCS is controversial b/c it does not depict the resurrection.. which meant my very Catholic mother banned it in our house LOL" ------- That's funny. My mother had JCS (on vinyl, of course) and would listen to it secretly when we were at school (I know, because I walked in on her once or twice).

See, Wicked is a movie I have no interest in seeing and I'm so glad the tv commercials promoting it are over.. That green witch and her voice really got annoying, Lol.

"But she does have a beautiful voice." ---------- That is extremely debatable, IMHO. She is very talented and a good dancer/performer, but her voice is pretty poor, at best.

I only like her older stuff....nothing current, just not a fan.

I do like Godspell too... the big difference b/w the too is that Godspell really follows the gospel of Matthew  and the final scene depicts the ressurection -- JCS is controversial b/c it does not depict the resurrection.. which meant my very Catholic mother banned it in our house LOL

"The movie lost what I love about the show which is a small ensemble playing multiple roles" -------- I can see how that would be appealing.

I think there are lots of things that are a waste of time and money and lots of things that are worth the time and money, that would be a good set of fluff questions, don't you think?   I bet it varies widely across the board.

TY for that correction bea. Godspell is similar to Jesus Christ Superstar and DD2 and I saw that at a local theatre last Summer, I didn't know if she'd like it or not but it was a powerful production and they even carried some of it down to the aisles which made it that much more engaging which was pretty neat.

The movie lost what I love about the show which is a small ensemble playing multiple roles-- when I did Evita I played: a girl mourning her at her funeral ("ride on my train oh my people.. and when it's your turn to die you'll remember.. "), her mother, an aristocrat, a member of Peron's cabinet, a member of the crowd outsied the casa rosada (you shout "Peron! Peron!" 24 times before changing to "EVIIIIITTA! EVITTTTTA!") and a torchbearing protester in "A new Argentina"  that is the great joy of that show for me which is lost in the movie...

And lest it be thought I don't like "spectacle" productions I absolutely to my bones love "Wicked"  even my wife cried...

Just asked that question, didn't think so and too lazy to google.  :)
