I have always thought Gaga should play Elphaba in the WICKED film.

The themes of bullying/not fitting in resonate with her core values and she would belt the Hell out of the score.

She would also look great in the costumes I think.

Elphaba's costumes are deliberately basic in the show, though.

Sally, "The Man That Got Away" is not from the original. It is from the 1954 remake. The 1937 original (1932 if you consider "What Price Hollywood" the original"Lady Gaga confirmed for A STAR IS BORN was not a musical.

 

Art has a double face, of expression and illusion.

If on Broadway even Hamilfans could not afford what the  price of tickets would be.

Exciting news, but I'm not sure what this portends about the film's quality...

I can't wait for one of the Gaga-penned new songs to drop. I think she's an incredible talent not only as a performer...but as a writer...very inspirational to me.

I think the change in release simply means they think this will be more of a summer draw(i.e attract younger viewers) than a fall release (typically older audiences, and more Oscar type fare). I don't think this really is the kind of thing that would be up for major awards (other than maybe Best Song).

South Fl Marc said: "They could have done some really interesting things with this remake to make it different. They could have made the older star a woman and the young star in the making a man. They could have made it a gay couple. Dragging out this time worn plot and doing it the same way seems boring and unnecessary."

My thoughts precisely.

Yes--and with this amount of enthusiasm.

Nothing concrete. Yes, the fall is typically Oscars time. But some people do launch Oscar movies in the May. Woody Allen with Midnight in Paris. Of course, it might not have as much to do with the movie itself and might have more to do with Warner Bros. Theoretically, you can launch a good movie at any time now so they might have moved the release date for counterprogramming or because something is happening with their superhero movies. 

I will say that while I'm not convinced she'll be a great actress, I am encouraged to hear Bradley Cooper's (and presumably Lady Gaga's character) is a country music star. Based on her music, I think she does well singing at least country-adjacent. I was worried when I thought she was going to do her best imitation of Judy Garland.
