ROCK MUSICALS FROM ANOTHER PLANET: DAY TWO



Hedwig And The Angry Inch

The rare musical that is at once irreverent and completely emotionally engrossing, Hedwig is the best movie-musical of the last twenty years. End of story. Even if you’re not a botched transsexual (and really, the majority of us aren’t), you’ll find something to relate to hear. Plus, if all else fails just close your eyes and listen to the music. It is utterly gorgeous. Just listen to Origin Of Love for confirmation.

Shock Treatment

Shock Treatment is Rocky Horror’s successor, even though it has little to do with that movie despite some of the same characters and many of the same actors & crew. It certainly cements Richard O’Brien in the hall of geniuses. The fact that he was able to so completely predict the rise of reality TV in this movie (Big Brother, anyone?) is astounding. The soundtrack is much more 80’s new wave than RHPS, but it is so incredibly good that it almost gives that hallowed masterpiece a run for its money.

It's pretty good. I remember the first time I saw it I was disappointed but each time since I've loved it more and more. The music is fantastic.
