    Thought this deserved a topic with the soundtrack being released (and fab) and including pretty much bop after bop. Basically it's Romeo & Juliet with Max Martin songs.



    (Oh and Jessie J got a song tagged on. Oh well)

  2. Oh I thought it was all new songs, not his past catalogue... interesting
     
  3. Loving that Show Me Love is getting some love. (The Robyn song, I presume?)
     
  4. It is!

    Yes! It's even got a pretty big part in the trailer.
     
  6. The Blow version is a mess. I want to watch it though it looks good.
     
  7. Teenage Dream and Break Free mash so well.
     
  8. No Style...what’s the point?
     
  9. I did wonder why there was no Taylor. There must be a reason, she’s got some of his biggest hits. Look What You Made Me Do and We Are Never Getting Back Together definitely could have fit in there somewhere.

    Show Me Love and It’s My Life really work as musical songs. The Can’t Feel My Face / Problem mashup is also awesome.

    I'm seeing it the day after Emma Bunton's gig. Very excited.

  11. This is Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun’s fault, I just know it.

  12. It's great fun, and obviously the score is bop after bop delivered by a very talented cast. Would heartily recommend.

    I've been so tempted to play this soundtrack at work, it's definitely an interesting premise for a musical.

    Also scream at me wondering why Anne Hathaway is a character not knowing that was apparently the name of Shakespeare's wife???

    Is there a lot of talking between songs or is it just really short?
    I'm a bit surprised the complete setlist fits one disc.
     
  15. I’m going tomorrow so I’ll let y’all know the tea

  16. It had a 4 week 'practice' run in Manchester prior to the move to London - It's a great musical because of the brilliance that is Max Martin and the cast are in the main really good too - What let it down just a little for me were the excruciating puns and jokes littered throughout - I still definitely recommend it though.

  17. I'm seeing this on Wednesday. Everyone I've spoken to has loved it and it's had pretty great reviews.

  18. Agreed but in the actual show it's ridiculously good. So much beefier. In fact a lot of the recordings sound weak in the soundtrack compared to how they were on stage.

    The show is completely ridiculous and borderline panto in parts but I loved it. It doesn't take itself seriously at all and the songs are brilliant so it was a win win for me.

  19. To be fair, the puns and jokes are deliberate and often come with a wink to the audience too.

    I might buy tickets for this.
