It might've just been Kristin's surprisingly dull performance, but Fran in Promises, Promises seems like a boring time for any actress. She spends most of the show sa
I love Moulin Rouge and will no doubt see this, but I'm a little wary about how this will work onstage. The most impressive parts of the movie are purely cinematic devices (the editing, cinematography, visual effects).
