AT THE BALLET As A Solo? (Sung By Julie Andrews)


joined:12/31/69
I found this today and nearly died laughing! I don't know what program she was on, but why on Earth would she perform this song? The three stories just don't work when told as one, and the result is just bizarre. I wonder how it would seem to someone who was not aware that the portions were originally three separate stories?




Bizarre indeed.

The sleeves on that gown are to die for. Wow.

Also, didn't know she was so graceful. Thanks for sharing.

This is worse than the VICTOR/VICTORIA musical and the opening titles sequence of SOB. Much worse. Think I might try "You Gotta Have a Gimmick" or "Fugue for Tinhorns" as a solo now.

Or "The Telephone Hour." That'd be some solo.

I was going to defend her because she's, well, Julie Andrews.

Then I watched it.

Here it is as it should be, sung by the original performers:

I never thought I'd ever say anything Julie was worse than that six minute wide shot of "Polly Wolly Doodle" her husband subjugated her/us to. If Julie ever denies doing coke in the 70s, show her this.

I think Billy Porter wears that white gown with the humongous sleeves in Kinky Boots.

When I was a child, pushing my toy cars through the streets of my toy town as my father played the LPs of Broadway musicals in the background, I used to think that At The Ballet was sung by one person.

But, hey, I did at least manage to work out that A Weekend in the Country was sung by three.
