Musical Moments – Somewhere Over the Rainbow (Judy Garland)

I am super excited about the preview of Judy tomorrow night before opening on Wednesday. Judy Garland was a truly incredible performer and I thought this Monday why not have her incredible performance of Somewhere Over the Rainbow to try and lift everyone’s spirits!

Jackman Plans Carousel Trip With Oscars Partner Hathaway

I think Hugh and Anne would make a fantastic pairing for a new version of Carousel *fingers crossed*

Hugh Jackman is trying to persuade his Oscars dancing partner Anne Hathaway to join him on the Carousel.

The Aussie star has developed a script for the beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein musical and he wants Hathaway to play Julie Jordan opposite his Billy Bigelow.

He says, “I’ve been looking to do a musical film for some time and after things like Moulin Rouge!, Chicago and Hairspray, I think there’s a real opportunity there.”

And he’s clear only Hathaway will do as his leading lady: “I’ve been filling up her answering machine with messages about Carousel.”

Hathaway, who joined Jackman for a song and dance at the Oscars, is about to embark on her own musical journey – she will star in a new theatre and film adaptation of The Wizard of Oz star Judy Garland’s life.
