The Music Man Review

The Stratford Festival is one of my favourite summer time activities. Stratford is such a cute little town so it’s kind of fun to go spend the day there. This year, the main musical at the Festival Theatre is The Music Man. I kind of dragged my mom to go see it with me because it’s one of her favourite musicals so I thought it would be fun. And it was a really fun time indeed. Continue reading “The Music Man Review”

Movie of the Month: Moulin Rouge!

Moulin Rouge! is one of my favourite movies so I decided to rewatch it again. This may or may not have had something to do with a) Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir doing their Olympic figure skating routine to a medley of songs from the film and b) Moulin Rouge is finally a stage musical that just premiered in Boston starring Aaron Tveit and Karen Olivo. Nevertheless, I do not regret my decision to rewatch this movie. Continue reading “Movie of the Month: Moulin Rouge!”

The Wizard of Oz in Melbourne Review

Melbourne is kind of known for being an arts and culture centre, so when I was there a few weeks ago, I took the opportunity to go see a show. There were a couple of things playing like Bring It On (which was sold out) and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, and the show I decided on, The Wizard of Oz. The Wizard of Oz is about a girl named Dorothy Gale who gets sucked into a tornado and taken to the the land of Oz Continue reading “The Wizard of Oz in Melbourne Review”

Assassins in Sydney Review

“Guns don’t right the wrongs”

One of the last things tourist things I did in Sydney was see Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins at the Sydney Opera House. I mean, I was happy to see anything at the iconic Opera House but I’m glad it was a musical (and the tickets were the cheapest theatre tickets I’ve ever gotten??). Assassins is based on historical figures who attempted (successfully or not) to assassinate the President of the United States as they try to live out the American Dream.¬† Continue reading “Assassins in Sydney Review”

In Which I Rank Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). I have written many Movie of the Month posts so I thought it would be fun to go through and rank the MCU movies that led up to Infinity War. I have seen most of these movies but the ones I haven’t, I obviously won’t rank. Let’s go!

Wicked Review

Last weekend, I got to revisit one of my favourite musicals. Is it clich√© to say Wicked is one of my favourite musicals? Anyways, it’s one of the shows that got me into musical theatre in the first place when I lied to my friends in grade seven and told them I loved Wicked even though I’d never seen it. Anyways, that’s another story for another time. Continue reading “Wicked Review”

Movie of the Month: The Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened

If you’re a theatre kid or a Stephen Sondheim fan, then I would consider this to be mandatory viewing (and it’s on Netflix so you really don’t have an excuse to not watch it). The Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened is a documentary, directed and narrated by Lonny Price, that takes the audience behind the scenes of the original 1981 Broadway production of Merrily We Roll Along. It’s about how Merrily was made and the people who made it. Continue reading “Movie of the Month: The Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened”

Movie of the Month: The Incredibles 2

I have been waiting for 14 years for this movie to come out and it’s another movie I saw opening weekend. I went to a late evening screening so the cinema was just filled with 20 year olds so that it itself was a fun time. If you read my Top 5 Favourite Movies post, you’ll know that The Incredibles is one of my all time favourite films so you’ll understand why I was so excited when this was first announced and it really didn’t disappoint me. It was so good.
