Welcome to part one of the Jim and Tomic Holiday Extravaganza! Crack open the eggnog and light up a fire as you settle down with us for an evening of musical quizzes, chatting about the recent NBC Live production of “The Wiz”, potentially poor Christmas musicals, the questionably successful live stream of “Daddy Long Legs” and a plethora of deviation from the point. Happy Holidays!
To get you in the mood here’s Queen Liza-With-A-Z and Cyril Ritchard after what looks like their seventh carton of eggnog.
Enjoy Dame Angie leading the working broadway masses in a post-strike sing a long! (And do your best to look past her lyric difficulties).
Check out Ralphie from “A Christmas Story” saving the day with his Red Ryder Carbine Action BB Gun, with the compass on the stock and this thing that tells time, in an early rehearsal for its out of town tryouts in Chicago.
Have sympathy for poor Marta in the recent “Sound of Music” live broadcast in the UK, who takes a fall but recovers beautifully with the aid of Maria (played by the surprisingly alright Kara Tointon).
Jimi is still obsessing over the gods of lighting design who were integral in making “The Wiz Live” as spectacular as it was. Just look at that cyclorama!
Ask anyone what the ultimate movie musical song is and they will answer only thing: “Reproduction” from Grease 2. They’d be 100% correct. Here’s why…
Hey listeners, we want you to quiz us! Tweet us any song title (grammar and punctuation doesn’t matter) which is shared by two musicals to @jimandtomic and we’ll try and guess!
Have a look-see at the trailer for the Off-Broadway premiere of “Daddy Long Legs”. What do you think? Was this the right musical to invest in streaming to the world? Let us know your thoughts!
Tune in to part two of our Holiday Extravaganza to find out our next quiz question for what we’ll be talking about in our first podcast of 2016!
