Why do we only have a forum here about it because the movie is coming out next week?

Does anyone feel like its going to be the next "hit" musical (like RENT) Because, personally, I feel a lot of other shows would be more successful movies. *shrugs* At least I can feel cool for seeing Dreamgirls (a very bad outdoor theatre production) before most people had even heard of the movie.

Like what shows? I can think of a ton of musicals that might be popular amongst theatre people only but flop at the box office like Rent did because it doesn't transcend that well to non theatre people.

Dreamgirls actually isn't that awful of a musical and the storyline might actually interest people other then the musical theatre crowd, if the cast alone won't draw people to it.

Why should it make you feel cool because you saw it before it was a movie? That's silly. Why does it matter what someone saw first as long as they at least acknowledge the original source (like some of the new Rent fans only know the movie and know nothing about the broadway show).

I have a feeling everyone is going to be like "OMG Dreamgirls!" and singing all the music everywhere, at least at my school. It was like that with Rent. I got to feel smug for knowing the music before they did.

Thats the word I was looking for. Smug. I'm an obnoxious, self-obsessed middle schooler who is known as the school theatre geek. I like feeling smug about knowing a thing or two about musicals since it so rarely happens that anyone cares at my school.

Since Beyonce is it in, you're probably right about people jumping on the Dreamgirls band wagon and not even knowing anything about the actual stage musical.

I found out that Beyonce is pissed off because Jennifer Hudson is better than her. I downloaded "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going", Jennifer Hudson's song and it is excellent. I cannot wait to see this film. A big group of my theatre and choir friends are going. YEAH!

I bought the soundtrack and it sounds great! I can't wait for it to come out. It supposed to be even better than Chicago. Now all they need is to do Wicked.

lol; who's your source? People magazine?! :lol:

I think that's just a bunch of hoopla; what the ef does she care about Jennifer Hudson? She's Beyonce for Pete's sake- I highly doubt she feels threatened, however wonderful Jennifer is in the film.

Or not. Wicked would lose a lot of what makes it popular (excuse the pun) in the transition from stage to screen (a.k.a. the almighty SPECTACLE). It be much better to stay where it is. As for Dreamgirls, I am excited to see it. Like Chicago before the movie came out, I know of it and I know a few songs from it but that's about it. A few friends and I are planning on seeing it Christmas Day.
