Did you like it for the plot, or for Matthew McConaughey?

Excellent storyline, Mud, it's not your normal kick butt movie, no car chases. One kid learning about, life and love...M. McConaughey shows once again he can be a serious actor AND keep his shirt on for most of the movie.

He's been afraid of musicals ever since. BTW, Cliff Bemis was also in that show. He's had quite a career as an actor ever since.



FWIW: In 1973, "Jacques Brel" was produced by Ray Shepardson in the lobby of Cleveland, Ohio's State Theatre. It was intended to play for two weeks, but continued through 1975, with a 522-performance run that remained the longest theatrical run in the city's history for many years. The performance is credited as a major factor in the rescue and restoration of the theater and its adjacent venues, which are now Playhouse Square Center, the largest theater complex in the USA outside of New York City.

OMG. Milleniums ago, I was bartending in a place that hosted a community theatre production of Jacques Brel! Loved it! I can sing all the songs!

My room mate at the time was more into Country, and did NOT like Jacques Brel.....

Whoa Dawg, we could have flashbacks together! Except I no longer remember the songs, so there's that...

I saw the movie Mama Mia first. The whole audience sang along through the whole showing. Then my daughter bought me the DVD. Then we went to the theatre to see the stage version. Again, at the end, the whole cast sang the whole show again with words shown on a screen and the whole audience sang along with them. Then when the show came back to Boston, we went to see it again. I love live stage musicals. When I went to visit my girlfriend in California, we went to see the stage show of "Thoroughly Modern Millie."
