Into the Woods is on Netflix Instant, if you have it and are still interested.
Someone else also suggested Netflix as well. I don’t have a Netflix account, but I know someone who does, so I’ll look into that. Or I may just wait until I see Into the Woods live, and then watch it after so I can be open-minded as possible (I’ve seen it once a long time ago and don’t remember much).
"No you’re no match for Elsa.
So someone mentioned on one of my posts about Hans’ speech that this was also a very important line. I totally agree. In one sentence, he is saying two very important things.
First, and what the person mentioned, he’s saying that Anna will never compare to her sister. Her sister will always be the most powerful, the braver, the stronger one of the both. Once again he is comparing her to her sister, putting her in a deeper hole of self hate than she already was.
But the second thing, not only is he telling her that she is nothing compared to her sister, but he is also saying that she can’t do anything for her sister. She had tried to get her sister back from the mountains, she had tried to make elsa come with her. But she had failed. He’s reminding her that even she couldn’t persuade her own sister into coming back home. She didn’t have enough strength.
And this breaks Anna.
Her true love actually never loved her, her sister hates her, and there is just nothing she can do about it.
I’m not going to see Jesus Christ Superstar US Arena Tour after all. I was disappointed when I heard the news because it’s coming to my state and the opportunity for tickets was there, but it’s too expensive.
I am, however, going to see Into the Woods; not the movie, but a proper, professional staging. So I have that to look forward to.
I finally realized the significance of Shakespeare and I sharing the same birthday. I’m heavily invested in what goes on at the Stratford Festival (even though I have never been there and most likely will never go there), and I’m planning on working at a Shakespeare Festival in my own state in a few years.
Thank you to the Bard!
It’s Shakespeare’s 450th birthday! Let’s celebrate! (Full post here - http://goodticklebrain.com/home/2014/4/23/happy-450th-birthday-shakespeare)
