Pin It


Casting Coup Tuesdays...of the Future!

We're coming to a close on July, so it's time to update y'all on upcoming CCTs. This gives you an opportunity to pick up a copy of the play, book, or movie being cast so you can be in on the fun.

August 5 -- The Little Mermaid, based upon the musical by Doug Wright, Alan Menken, Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, based upon the Disney movie which I finish the great Disney Princess Triumvirate with an unorthodox choice.

August 12 -- Mame, based upon the musical by Jerome Lawrence, Robert E. Lee and Jerry Herman which the My Fair Lady brouhaha reminds me of a movie-musical that actually needs a new take on it, in an attempt to improve on the first misstep. Get the Movie Soundtrack (Lucille Ball), Broadway Soundtrack (Angela Lansbury), or DVD (Lucille Ball).

August 19 -- The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, based upon the novel by Michael Chabon which I attempt the impossible, and cast a novel spanning three decades and multiple characters. The paperback can be bought at Barnes & Noble and Border for $15.00.

August 26 -- August: Osage County, based upon the play by Tracy Letts which the most recent Tony-winner for Actress and Play gets the Walter treatment, what with the film rights having been sold and all. Available in paperback at Barnes & Noble and Borders for $13.95.
