I wasn’t going to buy a costume this year and go all out like I normally do, but now I got invited to a few parties and sort of want to. The tipping point for me wanting to do a costume was thinking about a playlist and hearing this song.
Leave it to Disney to produce one of the most loved Halloween movies “Hocus Pocus” and then create a showstopping feature for Halloween at their theme park feature their most famous villains, and then top it off with exact look and sound alike cast members to recreate a famous scene. That is a huge run-on, but it is so worth it once you see the performance. I mean seriously, Disney is ridiculously amazing normally, but to do this as a limited show and pull it off is insane.
I know I haven’t updated the blog for a while but its because I’ve been swamped with work. Sorry about that. I finally had some time to update this morning and even though I was in NYC last week and saw On The Town which is about to close, instead of reviewing my favorite song from the “I Can Cook Too”, I found this parody of Ain’t Nothing Like A Dame.
Normally I’d go into why it’s a parody, how it’s a parody, why it’s funny…..but that’s boring since this one does it for itself. Instead, why don’t you watch this fun cast perform Ain’t Nothing Like A Dame as a parody and then share your favorite things about it. Once you watch you’ll easily understand why I don’t need to say why there ain’t no “dame” thing to comment on why this is an awesome parody. (Sorry, bad pun)
Have you ever wondered what Disney touring casts look like when traveling? How about if they get a long, how they go from city to city or even what happens when two touring casts collide? What happens if they’re both from the same producer or parent company?
That’s exactly what happened during a 6 hour layover at the Orlando airport when the cast of Disney’s The Lion King got stuck with the cast of Disney’s Aladdin. The two ended up in a epic battle of opening songs sung acapella in the terminal which also resulted in a ton of YouTube uploads, tons of talent and two of your favorite opening Disney broadway numbers.
We’ve heard rap on broadway before. In The Heights, Rent and even If/Then (I think) had different styles of it. But what happens when you take incredible Hip-Hop artists like Jay-z, Lil Wayne, Rhianna and others, give the lyrics to broadway singers and then have them put the lyrics to popular showtunes or showtune styled piano?
This is what happens and it’s amazing!
