I currently feel that I am being haunted by this new musical based on the popular film of Pretty Woman which has recently opened on Broadway. I am really hoping to get to see it in November even more after the new production shots have been released with so many classic moments from the film included in these stills! Pretty Woman the Musical, has anyone out there who reads my blog seen it yet?
Julia Roberts attended Pretty Woman the Musical on Broadway last night and it really is just fantastic! It was a tribute performance to Garry Marshall who directed the film version of Pretty Woman, Julia was joined by Barbara Marshall for the special evening in his honour.
You may or not be aware that Julia Roberts is my all time favourite actress (Sorry Meryl/Catherine Zeta Jones) so I thought I would start a new series of blog posts 7 Greatest Performances and who better to start with than Julia Roberts? This will be looking at the best performances from different actors rather than judging just the film. I thought this would create some very good and interesting lists, as the greatest performances are not necessarily in the best films. This comes on the back of seeing Wonder over the weekend which I thought she was just amazing in!
Everyone at the moment is apparently in love with Christian Grey again. You know that billionaire who thrives off abusing women with pain in “sex” punishments to make himself feel better.
In Fifty Shades Darker he even calls himself a sadist. He’s controlling, manipulative and suffocating. Telling you that you can’t do something and wanting you just for his own. The latter of that would or could be nice I guess but not in the way it is portrayed through his character. Does this therefore risk our ideas of love and relationships to change?
Give me Robert in Bridges of Madison County standing in the rain any day over Christian Grey and his “playroom” any day!
