Celebrate Musicals Week is being hosted by Miss Amy Dashwood at her BLOG.
1. What musical did you pick to "spotlight" this week and why?
The Sound of Music.
2. How did you discover the musical you picked (hereinafter referred to as "your musical")?
I watched the movie when I was rather young. It was the fall I was 7 if I am remembering right and I did not stay in the room to watch the end with the Nazis.
3. If you had to pick three favorite songs from your musical, which ones would they be?
Sixteen Going on Seventeen, Climb Ev'ry Mountain, Edelweiss.
4. What's your least favorite song from your musical?
An Ordinary Couple
5. Who are your favorite characters (choose up to three)?
Maria, The Captain, Liesl.
6. Which versions of your musical have you seen/listened to, and which is your favorite?
The 1965 Movie Cast, the Original Broadway Cast Recording.
7. Is this your favorite musical of all time? If not, what is?
8. Which cast album/musical soundtrack in your collection do you listen to the most?
The Movie Version. It is the only one I have.
9. What is your favorite costume from your musical?
Liesl's Sixteen Going on Seventeen dance dress.
10. If you could change anything about your musical, what would you change?
I would make the costumes a little more authentic. The Baroness would be a little more jealous of Maria.
11. Which role(s) would you most like to play in any musical, if you had the opportunity to do so on stage?
12. If you could choose one performer to play any part in your musical, who would you choose and which part would you have them play?
This one is a tough one so think I'll pass on it.
13. Do you consider yourself a musical theatre fan in general or do you just like a few musicals?
Just a few.
14. Are you tired of the word "musical" yet?
Not yet! But saying it so many times has gotten me thinking about where the word originated and so on.
15. Turn your music playing device on shuffle (or utilize Pandora if you don't have one) and tell us the names of the first three show tunes that come up-- no cheating! How do these rank on your favorites/most-listened-to list?
I can't do this right now as I can't shuffle a cassette tape. =)
