I have never seen 13 but I’m open to this movie after how the Prom turned out.

I have no idea why they list Crossroads as one of Tamra Davis' accomplishments when she directed Billy Madison.

The indie adaptation of The Last Five Years is one of my favorite movie musicals, so I have high hopes when it comes to Jason Robert Brown's ability to translate his work to film.

Because Britney is the cause du jour lately.

I saw 13 and thoroughly enjoyed it and was sorry it didn’t run.

I find this property so beyond fascinating. I don’t know why it came to fruition, why this specific creative team was involved, why it went to Broadway, etc. I don’t see it produced often in community theatres, the only time I hear about it is when Ariana Grande mentions it.

At the very least, this looks like a diverse cast with tremendous talent. I wonder how this material will sell though.

Once a property goes to netflix....is there really any "selling"?   Other than whether or not it becomes a trending title SEEMS to be the only real barometer.  Are there other ways?
