It’s true. I lied. I have been adament about my hatred of musicals with almost anyone who will listen to my ravings. I have been known to tell a sweetly sashaying little blonde songstress who’s locker was near mine in college that she was “not gonna go on 18” if I heard her sing Sound of Music’s “I am 16 going on 17” one more FREAKIN’ time!!
But folks – I am ashamed to admit that I absolultely protested too much against this particular genre. I tell you now that I adored Chevalier in Gigi, Kaye in White Christmas, Andrews in Mary Poppins, and (can you believe?) Brando in Guys and Dolls.
Ok. Maybe you already suspected I made an exception to my earlier hatred of musicals for Marlon Brando. I mean that man can do no wrong even when he’s housing a racoon in his hotel room – but I digress… So bring on the musicals! I can finally take it!
