I Hate Green Beans Podcast 18: Favorite Musicals
I am a fan of musicals. That’s weird to admit. It’s like saying, “Hey y’all, I hate green beans.”
After recording this podcast with my friend Stephanie, I forgot how much I love musicals. Choosing my favorites was next to impossible, and as the podcast goes on, I realize there are beloved musicals that I completely forgot. Dreamgirls, for one. Jennifer Hudson and Bey? Yes, please. Also, Rock of Ages. Tom Cruise as an 80s rock star? I’ll allow it.
Stephanie and I dig deep. Here are a few things we discuss:
Lina Lamont’s diction training – Singing in the Rain
How I had a crush on all the boys in Newsies
OUR LOVE OF CONRAD!
The fact that the Lion King‘s opening “Circle of Life” number gives us chills
I like Zac Ephron singing “Ladies Choice” from Hairspray. No judgement.
How the “Happy Little Working Song” from Enchanted is both enchanted and gross
Here’s a link to Stephanie’s favorite version of Cinderella
And our affection for the “Elephant Love Song Medley” from Moulin Rouge
Plus many, many more. I hope you like it!
