Musical theater is one of the most popular forms of stage performance. Be it on Broadway, West End, or a small community theater, famous musicals are almost universally loved by all. But do they translate well into movies? Do their film adaptations give justice to the original stage performance? Okay, that's a pretty hard question to answer, especially now that there's a myriad of upcoming movie musicals on the horizon. There are those that turn out to be as great as their stage counterparts, and there are those that aren't quite as fascinating in the big screens as it is on stage.
Of course, you also cannot discount the fact that the actors affect the overall appeal of the musical movie. There are actors who truly have what it takes to be on par with Broadway musical singers, and then there are those who aren't perfectly suited for the role. It's sort of a hit-and-miss situation when it comes to movies made into musicals.
So here, we're calling on all the musical aficionados out there to vote on which of these musicals you think is the best. Which of these titles made you love music more? Take your pick! From classic ones like Les Miserables to more modern titles like The Producers, we got them here!
Yes, that's right! Hamiton is the recorded version of the original Broadway show of the same title. Wrapped around the elements of hip-hop and musical, this Disney-exclusive film showcases the impeccable talents of the esteemed cast of the original cast. If you were able to watch the live version, then Hamilton in 2020 is a good way to reminisce it.
Here's something interesting for you, swifties: Did you know that Taylor Swift actually auditioned for Eponine in Tom Hooper's film adaptation of Les Miserables? Surprising, right? As you may all know, Swift is already set to play the character of Bombalurina in Tom Hooper's upcoming Cats movie adaptation. (By the way, the character has got some flirty sass we're excited to see Taylor bring out. And trust us, she's gonna be a sure-fire standout!) But Cats isn't actually the first time that the pop queen rubbed elbows with Hooper. Yup, as we said, she almost took part in his directorial debut in 2012.
Okay, to those of you who have seen the musical movie, you'd probably agree with us when we say that Anne Hathaway slayed that part, and there's denying the fact that when it comes to sheer talent, the Hollywood actress is a force to be reckoned with. Yet, you have to admit, our Taytay would have given a powerful performance had she been chosen for the role too. Her vocal chops would have been insane! After all, Taylor is no stranger to musicals. Still, when you come to think of it, maybe fate had other plans for her. Well, she is one of the most popular music artists now for a reason, so that rejection certainly did not mean she wasn't good enough. In fact, she even finds that experience enjoying. Now, if you still need any more convincing about her prowess, then you should watch Cats! You'll know what we're talking about.
