Once upon a time there was a queen, and she cast a glorious curse that gave her everything she wanted…or so she thought. She despaired when she learned that revenge was not enough. She was lonely. And so she searched the land for a little boy to be her prince. And then, she found him. And though they lived happily, it was not ever after. There was still an evil out there lurking. The queen was worried for her prince’s safety. While she knew she could vanquish any threat to the boy, she also knew she couldn’t raise him worrying. No, she needed to put her own troubles aside and put her child first. And so, the queen procured an ancient potion of forgetting. It’s alright! If the queen drinks the potion, she won’t forget her child. She’ll only forget her worries, her troubles, her fears. And with those gone, she and her prince can, indeed, live happily ever after.
People need to stop comparing Carrie to Julie! Julie is by far my favorite Maria and one of my favorite actresses of all time, (I have idolized her ever since I was 4) but NBC is not trying to completely copy the original. Carrie knows she isn’t Julie and she’s not trying to play it like her. This is a fresh take on the musical and I think it sound great! True Carrie sounds nothing like Julie whatsoever, but I find that to be a good thing. I would have found it a little boring if they were just trying to remake the movie, but they’re not trying to remake the movie. They are doing a combination of the Musical and the Movie, taking songs from both. NBC is also trying to open up more people to the wonderful world of musical theatre and I think it was very smart that they casted Carrie because she brings in a fresh new audience to the musical theatre world. I am not even a HUGE Carrie fan, but I do like her music and I think she is a very talented person who is so versatile. So to wrap this review up, please stop hating on Carrie and give it a chance. It’t not fair for her to be receiving all these hate messages. Think about it this way; would you want someone who you don’t even know sending you hate mail? No you wouldn’t, so why should you send it to a celebrity who is just trying to do this or her job? People make me so sick sometimes.
