It will never cease to amuse me that UKIP seem to have got their colour scheme from the Standing At The Back Dressed Stupidly And Looking Stupid Party from Blackadder.
oooh this will be a lot harder than it should be, won’t it?
[in no particular order]
3. Legally blonde
5. Les Misérables
6. Into the woods
[I’m guessing Chicago but I don’t remember?]
okay yeah it’s true, I can never remember shows when people ask me questions and I’m hoping there’s a lot more but I can’t think of any and that’s
quite distressing, actually
Still Phantom of the Opera. Carlotta and Christine bicker about their career in Notes 2. An issue caused by the Phantom, sure, but neither are referring to him.
Where does the Bechdel test stand on Lesbian couples? :P Rent, Zanna Don’t, Saucy Jack, spring to mind as having women talking to each other with ZERO interest in men!
Cats passes - tho it’s hard to define “conversation” in relation to the poetry, I’d consider the Gumbie Trio to effectively be having a conversation about Jennyanydots.
Starlight Express probably counts as a fail, the clearest “conversation” being Girls’ Rolling Stock which is basically picking Dinah up but discussing Greaseball. Unless you consider “Locomotion” to be a conversation, where they’re introducing themselves. hmm, no, I reckon you can spin the original version as a conversation about themselves. The new version is a total fail, all slut drops and “uhhh I need a man, look at my ass, I need a big strong powerful engine”
Bat Boy passes :) Chicago passes, “Class” takes it clear.
Rock of Ages - grey area. Waitress #1 talks to Sherrie about her being down, but that’s because of her father’s attitude, so it’s kinda talking about a man… but more talking about Sherrie…
Fame - passes, I thought the Teachers Argument would pass it, but no, because they’re arguing over a male student. But the dancer girls and Mabel pass as they’re talking about food and her weight.
A couple of my favourite glittery Drag Queen shows don’t pass - Priscilla fails, there’s only three female characters, one of whom is Trans. La Cage similarly, almost entirely male, but given the setting, not surprising.
Avenue Q passes - Kate and Mrs T talk about work….
We Will Rock You passes, Scara and Meat talking about the Bohemians, and fashion, Scara and the Teen Queens - tho they mention boys.
Sister Act is a pass, right?
Spamalot fails… Rocky Horror fails…
Boy George’s Taboo passes - Kim and Josie (Billy’s mum) talk about work and fashion
Lloyd Webber seems to fail on most of his shows… Joseph, JC Superstar, kinda fair enough. Their source material doesn’t have much flexibility. Evita tho, possibly you can scrape a bit of the recit with her mother, but not really. Song and Dance, hah. Cats/Starlight/Phantom, covered above. Aspects of Love I think is a fail, the conversations between Rose and Giulietta all revolve around George… Sunset Blvd I don’t know well but I don’t think the two main women ever interact? Whistle Down The Wind I love, but unless you count Swallow talking about the kittens with her siblings, I think it fails… I want to say Beautiful Game fails too, the girls talk exclusively about the boys. I can’t comment on Woman in White or Love Never Dies, or Stephen Ward to be fair.
In Love Never Dies Meg and Christine swipe at each other about performing, and Meg discusses her act with her mother, but it’s a thinly veiled “will he like it?”
i’m just gonna leave this here as a reminder that “hitting bottom” doesn’t mean “staying on bottom for the rest of your life and dying as a piece of crap”
I will never, ever, not reblog this.
Folg mir nach, vertrau der Nacht
whenever you refresh your dashboard and no one is posting:
Who are they?
Courtney Woods’ mum and dad.
Can someone else do them first?
Not a problem, mate. I can cope with anything tonight.
I thought he was new to the school?
Maybe they meant a collective “you” as in the school.
