Now that is amovie I thought I wasn't going to like, but loved it. I bought the soundtrack the next day. Again, majorly underappreciated, but everyone who like Musical Theatre need to see this movie. GREAT GREAT GREAT.

Great movie with a FANTASTIC cast.. choreographed by Jerry Mitchell

of the CAMP kids....

Sasha Allen was in BARE
Tracee Beazer is now a Dynamite in Hairspray
Steven Cutts is a Seaweed cover in the Toronto Hairspray
Dequina Moore is in Little Shop
Vince Rimoldi just wrapped the Jesus Christ Superstar (he is SUCH a sweetie and great fun to chat with.. I LOVE getting to talk with him now and again)

Sasha Allan has one of the best voices. I mean, she can bring tears to your eyes. I just lay back and listen to her sing with a big smile on my face. I also liked the "Ladies Who Lunch" segment. Because, 1.) I love that song and 2.) because that girl who was the one to complete the song was SPECTACULAR. "Turkey Lurkey Time" was my worst favorite part of the movie. Mainly because it was annoying.

I also think that Robin De Jesus (who played Michael) would make a pretty good Angel in the RENT movie.

I believe Anna Kendrick sang Ladies Who Lunch in this film. Sadly, it was left off of the soundtrack.

Sasha has an INCREDIBLE voice.. I had her belting directly at me several times during Bare. PHENOMINAL singer.

No. Ladies who Lunch is on the soundtrack. It is not done exactly the same way as the movie, but it is still AWESOME

re: CAMP
Posted by broadwayguy2 2004-07-10 03:33:33

oy yes.. I forgot.. It was "And I am Telling You" that was left off.. I don't have it to look at right now...

re: CAMP

i know. I was looking for that song. I hate it when they don't put songs that were in the movie on soundtracks. Bugs the fool out of me. Oh well....

Anna Kendricks is great. I love seeing her on the My Favorite Broadway: The Leading Ladies dvd w/the Kit Kat Girls from Cabaret...and I'm so sad about Sasha not doing 'bare' in September! but then again, she had like NOTHING to do in that show...and a talent like hers should be on display like whoa. I've watched CAMP SO many times I've lost count.

Fav lines:
Vlad: Have you ever experimented with heterosexuality?
Michael: You mean...sleep with a straight guy?

And I went to school right by Stagedoor Manor...I kick myself now for not being a theatre person when I had the chance to go there!

re: CAMP
Posted by broadwayguy2 2004-07-10 03:39:21

I love that line too....

The Vlad character bugs me. Oh well

re: CAMP

i concur about Vlad...but Daniel Letterle...not that best actor in the world...but...*whew*...He could strum my guitar any day of the week.

I really like the girl who had her mouth wired shut. I forget what song she sang but it was really good.

Hey, BG2 - The Vlad character bugs you? Hmmmm......

re: CAMP
Posted by broadwayguy2 2004-07-10 13:27:22

The way it was written... the cute boys shows up, he's straight, he flirts with all the girls and leads on the homo boys.. and of course he is completely straight.. it felt like a cop out

re: CAMP

Oh, okay. 'cause I KNOW you think he's a lil' hottie

I'm leaving for Stagedoor for my third summer, so psyhced! Camp is a little soap operatic, but fun, specially since Ive been there. A little q: Anyone know what song Ellen is listening to after the catfight w/ Jill, on the rooftop on her Broadway Ballads Mix? I cna't figure it out.

Showed it to my dopey "Intermediate Drama" (the easy elective crowd) high school class....the 9th grade idiot girls only cared about seeing the guy playing Vlad....and got little else from the movie....One girl from my more motivated class actually spent a summer at Stage Door Manor....My favorite moment was the kid rejecting the sports coach...

re: CAMP
Posted by broadwayguy2 2004-07-11 03:00:39

I LOVED the kid with sports coach. That was SOO me growing up.

I love Spritzer (played by Vince Rimoldi)

Side note -- I LOVE Vince's tattoo

This is a movie I lrelated too, being that I went to a Performing Arts High School. I knew every single one of these charcaters (I, being a few of them myself). I loved this movie. And I thought the kids (especially Anna Kendricks) were very talented.
