So thrilled about this. And surprised and happy to see Bert V. Royal attached. I trust this will be very good if it has the same tone as Easy A.

Everyone here pretty much hated this show, so I guess this would qualify as a guilty pleasure for me.

I adore the show and love the score.

I had no problem with the score, I enjoy a number of the songs on the cast recording but found the book to be awfully trite and banal. But I enjoy Bert V. Royal's work though, I found his screenplay for "Easy A" to be very well written so I'm hopeful about this.

My favorite part of this show was when it was over and I didn't have to watch it anymore.

This is very good news for me. I have never seen the show, so I don't know how it works in context, but I love the score. I love Jason's music full stop!

Then you should just listen to the OCR and leave it there. 13 THE MUSICAL features one of the most atrocious books I think I've ever seen played out on a stage before.

^^Oh, the book was hideous. I'm confident Royal can beef it up.

What an interesting concept, make flop musicals into movies before doing something worthy. I still want the wasted time back I spent watching that dreck.
Now living in DC. I really have to change my name on the board.

"What an interesting concept, make flop musicals into movies before doing something worthy."

Isn't Kathie Lee doing that for Scandalous?

And by "sorting," I hope you mean rewriting...

I was hoping that we get a FOLLIES film first before 13 THE MUSICAL did, but since the writer of EASY A is involved, it does have a chance to be much better than the show. Some of the songs are good but the story and characters are politely pedestrian at best.
