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.

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

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 wanna see her tackle Fanny Brice or Evita really badly

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).

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.

BroadwayConcierge said: "Exciting news, but I'm not sure what this portends about the film's quality..."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.
Well this doesn't bode well....
She is a fab singer.
