But the conversation stops while the singing is going on. So when the singing is happening, is time paused for everyone else? Because otherwise there would be a huge gap in the conversation while the song is going on...
I think you just have to go with it. Like with most musicals I guess.
I agree it's the adult Glee! but I really like this and deals with much more serious issues.
I also agree that the choreography is stunning. Like in this week's episode where the background IT staff broke out some sharp moves. Also the somewhat age appropriate movements of Mary Steenburgen's character.
For me Alex Newell and John Clarence Stewart make the show. She is brilliant! Lot's of throw away lines and that guy's hair in amazing!
Also good to see Skylar Astin in something outside of Pitch Perfect.
I also think it's incredibly brave of actors who may not necessarily be trained singers or dancers to be be pushing their boundaries in such a way. They may not be perfect, but the pulling it off! As I'm still stuck in the Big Brother house I watched it on catch up last night and was mightily impressed with Mary Steenbergen.
I'm kinda wondering how many Broadway faces may appear in this.
For me, these kinda shows tap into a certain audience and just keeps musicals alive and the forefront of viewers.
(Once this friggin virus passes) anything that is going to help get bums on seats in a live theatre I'm all for.
Don't we get to be happy? At some point down the line, don't we get to relax without some new tsuris to push me yet further from you!
Who dare tell the lambs in Spring what fate the later season brings?
Yep I'm sticking with it. Alex Newell and Lauren Graham have enough sassy lines to keep me entertained, and Skylar Astin is adorable. Some great numbers as well. 'Fight Song' performed in sign language was particularly well done.
