Sorry, Phil, I know we’re ignoring this whole ghastly casting – revivals – of – humdrum – musicals – by – telly – with – tons – of – free – and – totally – unmerited – publicity thing but I saw this poster and I can’t let it pass without saying something.

“The No. 1 Greatest Musical”?

What does that mean?

What’s wrong with “The No. 1 Musical” or “The Greatest Musical”?

Apart from the fact that none of these claims is even remotely true or even arguable.

I’m off to bed. Ruined my day.

Note to the 200,000 tickets that have been released. Run! Take Flight!

    […] to its list of victims. See what they made of the latest promotional billboard on their blog by licking on this clink – or something to that […]

    Didn’t Grease win some ‘The Greatest Bestest most Fantasticest Musical EVER’ poll on Channel 4 a few years back? Though bearing in mind all we’ve recently discovered about the reliability of television phone-in polls, I’m not sure it’s a claim that can be back up with solid proof….

    God, what an awful production. Beyond belief.

    They even sell those glow stick things (usually seen on sale at pantos), so the children can annoy the hell out of you during the show (actually this is belssed relief).

  4. @ Peter – Indeed and what a dog’s dinner that was. Still, that’s what you get for watching TV. Yes, apparently the 13th greatest musical of all time was an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    Actually the Top 10 wasn’t too wide of the mark. At least Singin’ In The Rain was in there at number six.

    It’s all here if you want to refresh your memory.
