"The fact that he was Irish helped to ease the shock. As time passed, his talents as a painter and a teacher, as well as his charm, secured his acceptance in the small community.

So, I've discovered that MTV recorded the Legally Blonde musical, and I watched it last night and this morning (one Act each) and it's quite cute and fun. It surprises me how many musicals have been filmed. Off the top of my head I can think of Into the Woods, Jekyll & Hyde, Fosse, Smokey Joe's Cafe and RENT. I think it's a good idea. Not when the show is just starting, of course, but before it closes. It gives people like me, who aren't likely to get to New York regularly (or ever) to see the shows as they were originally staged.

Random thought: does anyone else think John Barrowman would make an excellent Scarlet Pimpernel? He can hero it up like whoa, I'm betting he could do an awesome fop as well. Get on this, people. *nods*
