Anyway, Grease is made popular by the movie of the same name starring John Travolta as Danny Zuko and Olivia Newton-John as Sandy. However, it was actually a Broadway show before it turned into a movie and I have to say that I prefer the movie than the stage version.
I just came back from watching a local production of Next To Normal by Pangdemonium and I would just like to simply say that it was a brilliant performance by such a stellar local cast alongside West End star, Sally Ann Triplett.
Let me first just begin by saying that the experience of watching a musical/stage play includes the venue where the musical/stage play is held and Resorts World Sentosa’s Festive Grand Theatre is actually pretty nice. For a fifth row seat, the price is way lower than that of a fifth row seat at the Marina Bay Sands’ MasterCard Theatre. There was also no one patrolling up and down the steps of the theatre before the show telling the patrons not to take photos of each other and/or the stage unlike that of the other theatre mentioned, which can get really annoying. Audience of a musical/stage play usually pretty much know how to behave in this setting so “babysitting” the patrons can really get on their nerves. There is a difference between giving great service and babysitting us. So, the experience in the venue was a good one for me as it was my first time there.
As I have reviewed in Love It Or Hate It when we first found out that it’s coming back, Drew Carey is not the host of the show anymore but Aisha Tyler. As per the post, I was a little bit doubtful of how it’s gonna be now with the new host.
But I shouldn’t have doubted it in the first place. She is absolutely brilliant. There is no awkwardness between her and the regulars – Wayne Brady, who trended on Twitter, Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles. There is already some form of camaraderie between the four. She’s not afraid to poke fun at the performers. I have no complaints at all.
There is a new segment this season called “Sideways Scenes” where three of the performers will go backstage and lie on the ground. The images will be projected out to the audience but it will seem like they are just normally standing. The performers were all just rolling around on the ground trying to act like they were walking and it’s so funny.
This season, there are also special guests. I’m not sure if it’s going to be a regular thing because past seasons weren’t so regular but this season has two in a row. The premiere of the show has Lauren Cohan from HBO’s The Walking Dead and Glee‘s very own Kevin McHale. I wasn’t really impressed with Lauren. She looked a bit awkward. I don’t think she can improvise really well but she tried. There was a funny moment from her. But you have to watch it to see it. I was in stitches! I am very impressed with Kevin though. He harmonized with Wayne Brady and was able to come up with a song somehow, he pretty much was perfect when it comes to acting out what Colin said and he did a British accent in another segment all on his own. It’s absolutely amazing to watch.
All in all, I love it, I love it, I love it! I can’t wait for more episodes! This time, please stay, Whose Line Is It Anyway. Don’t ever disappear from our TV screens!
Review under the cut…
I know, I know, I missed a couple of episode reviews of Teen Wolf. I wanted to come up with an awesome reason why I didn’t write my reviews for the two episodes before this latest one but I came up with none except that I was being a lazy arse. And also that I just watched the two episodes before this one like 2 hours ago. But, I don’t regret my decision at all because Motel California has got to be one of the best episodes of Teen Wolf.
Cut for possible spoilers for those who have not watched…
