Hit BroadwayMusical In 3 Dimensions?
BROADWAY MAGAZINE –As we mentioned last year, we fully expect that the new WICKED musical should be in 3-D, bringing a Wizard of Oz wholeness to this kid-from-Kansas story. Remember the film version of Wizard of Oz ushering in the glories of Technicolor? Well, the quest for a 3-D Wicked musical just got more steam as recent industry leaders like Shrek and DreamWorks visionary Jeffrey Katzenberg and Titanic’s James Cameron adopting the state-of-the-art technology in a full on embrace. Does this mean a 3-D Wicked is a lock? Of course not, but we continue to hope. Of course, you call always see it live on Broadway, and we actually prefer that to 3-D…though 3-D is something to love.
Remember, Catherine Zeta-Jones is doing a 3-D rock musical of Cleopatra…so Wicked may not be the first big musical in 3-D, but it still would make a mark. After all, the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus have already paved the way. Perhaps producers of the 3-D musical of WICKED will even cast American Idol favorite Adam Lambert, after all he knows the live version of the show already. Oh wait, Adam Lambert is going to star in Broadway’s Spider-Man Musical, right?
Hmmm. There are only two people who can solve this Broadway Musical American Idol dilemma: Clay Aiken and Taylor Hicks. Come on men, your Broadway needs you!
