High Fidelity: The Musical




There are bad ideas, and then there is this. I'm a huge Nick Hornby fan, but you couldn't pay me to go see a musical version of High Fidelity. I mean, can't you just imagine what the book version of Barry would have to say about it? Producers need to learn that not everything needs to be made into a musical. Ugh.

This review is interesting in that the writer had never seen the source material (either the book or the movie). He didn't like it either.

Comments:
Loved the book (read it at least 3 times so far), liked the movie (i'm a Cusak fan) even tho they moved it from London to Chicago, and I can't fathom seeing this musical.

On another Hornby note, they absolutely screwed the pooch on the American 'fever pitch' remake...blecccch.
 
Actuallu, a friend of mine who also is a huge Hornby fan went to see this and she loved it. I remain sceptical since, on paper, it seems like a travesty. But I am unwilling to damn it sigh unseen.
