Sometimes I become spellbound in the middle of Wal-Mart

Lestat.jpg

The much anticipated musical Lestat has opened on Broadway to mixed reviews. Anne Rice had to hold back tears of joy. Modern Fabulosity's eye were watering.

If you smell a foul stench at the corner of 47th and Broadway, it is probably Elton John and Bernie Taupin's vampire sudser Lestat, which by all rights should never have made it to Broadway in the first place. (It has no beginning or end...the story just begins and stops, leaving a dazed audience to figure out what's happening.) ... Ugh. Avoid at all costs.

Sadly, this is not enough to prevent me from seeing it.

Call me stunned. The movie version of Interview was a thudding bore, only enlivened by Kirsten Dunst. Even Bandares sucked as a Kabuki Armand. And the two leads were flatter than Pink.

Interestingly, Neil Jordan worked with the late great Angela Carter to adapt her story The Company of Wolves into a seductive, decadent fairy tale. But Interview was D.O.A.
