You Are So Not The One That I Want

Have you heard about this? NBC is doing a reality show to find the next Danny Zuko and Sandy Dombrowski (yes, that's her last name in the play, I promise) for the revival of Grease kicking off on Broadway sometime next year. Gross! First of all, does Grease really need a Broadway revival? Isn't is doing just fine for itself in community theatres and high schools across the country? Second, a reality show, where the viewing public can just call in and vote for their favorite? No way. To me, that spells flop. Unless the viewing public can see acting, singing and dancing on TV, there's just no way they're going to pick the right person for the role. Third, and I say this with nothing but love in my heart for Grease, it's not a phenomenal show. It's super cheesy... and do we really need any more cheese on TV? No and no. Poor NBC. Their ratings must really be hurting if they're willing to try this.

You're The One That I Want! - D- (points awarded because any singing & dancing on TV is at least a little good)

If this were a contest for the next hot Frenchy and Doody... well, it would be no contest. Paul and I would annihilate the competition.

My sister told me I should audition for this. True story. She forgot that I have no talent. Anyhow, what I love the most about this show is that every girl that auditions for Sandi sings Hopelessly Devoted(To You) and the show is called You're the One that I Want...two songs that weren't in the original score. Oh NBC! I won't lie, I'm probably going to be addicted to this show.
