The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to Gigi on Broadway!
Oh-la-la, we’ve got a verrrry grrrreat giveaway today, n’est-ce pas?
(Did the French accent come through on that? Because I was channeling my best Gérard Depardieu.)
Today, I’m giving away two tickets to France!
So how do you win tickets to see this classic Lerner and Loewe movie turned musical?
Here’s how . . .
The thing is, Gigi isn’t a new musical. And it isn’t a revival.
It’s part of a new category of musical that I like to call the “revisal.” A revisal is when an enterprising producer and creative team take a classic work like Gigi (the movie was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry), and updates it, making it relevant for today’s audiences.
For Gigi that meant updating the book, some of the tunes, and more.
As we get further and further away from some of the classic musicals, it may become more and more necessary.
Pick a musical that you think needs to be “revised” in order to work in a modern context. And extra credit if you tell me how you’d do it! Maybe it’s Show Boat. Or maybe it’s The Music Man. Or maybe it’s Cats because there are so many cat videos on YouTube now.
You comment below with what you’d want to revise and you could win two tickets to Gigi on Broadway!
