Wizard of Oz – Revamped by Weber

Sooo….

In London Town, they’re creating a new stage version of the Wizard of Oz that still use the classic Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg score.  (Note: Did you know that they almost cut “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” from the original movie??  Yuh-huh…check it out on wikipedia.)

Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice are writing NEW songs to work alongside the original songs for this production.

Ok….who thinks this is a good idea?!?!  I mean, come on!   This is one of the most beloved and classic movies of All TIME?  Talk about hard-to-improve!

It just a bad idea to begin with.  But.  Here’s. The. Worst. Part.

This is apparently the NEW opening number.  Featuring the banjo.  For reals.

No comment.

    Good God! The pure unadulterated sacrilege.
    Why?
    That tune was woeful and the thick American accent was painful.
    Shame on the both of them… ‘Somewhere over the rainbow’ rocks.
    Judy Garland – screaming in her grave.
