Queerty is better as a member
While watching “The Train Wreck of Music” last night, I realized things were missing; prefixing the show with “Live, from the Melonville War Memorial Auditorium” would have helped. Ms. Underwood certainly has a future in community theatre, perhaps as supporting cast. I never knew what the saying “Her acting emotions ran from A to B” until I watched Carries annoyingly flat delivery of queue card script (I was watching her eyes read off stage). I think the only emotion she was able to deliver was captured on camera for the photo still used in the publicity poster.
There were so many other able actors who would have been great in that role; Kristin Chenoweth for one. But Walmart needed a new shill, so Carrie was it. Oh well; with Walmart, you get what you pay for.
In fair tradition, Christopher Plummer could not sing, and neither could Stephen Moyer. I think I watched him closely to see if fangs would pop out of if he’s slip up and call “Maria” “Sookie” by accident. And the children… well… again, plucked from the obscurity of community theatre.
The ONE saving grace in the production was Audra McDonald as Mother Abbess. Her singing sent shivers down my spine in a good way.
Yes, that show last night on NBC was a travesty. She kept running out of breath when she sang and ran around. Plus the above poster is correct, her emotions ran the gamut of A to B. Carrie Underwood looked bored as did the kids playing the children.
Did you notice in the opening number Carrie Underwood slipped and almost fell? LOL! You could see the terror in her eyes.
“He may not be known for his singing chops, but that’s beside the point. He’s got the rock hard six pack and the bulging biceps, and that’s what matters most.” No, Queerty doofii, it’s not.
