Comments: Demos written for the proposed Warner Bros musical based on their series of movies but which was pulled in favour of "Le State" after the failure of "Dance of the Vampires".

Line Up: Elaine Caswell - Vocals, Rob Evan - Vocals, Karine Hannah - Vocals, Jim Steinman - Piano & Vocals

The Beautiful Game
[in Hungarian]
Hungarian Budapest, Hungary 2005 Pro 9.5 DVD
  Tech Details: PAL, Full screen / 4:3, LPCM, 125 mins,
Great quality filming of the Hungarian cast from a single camera in the balcony,  to the left of centre stage Pictures is as crisp as sharp as you could want as is the sound. However, there are some rather sharp cuts/edits between the main scenes/songs which tends to imply this may have been a rehearsal tape of some sort. as there doesn't appear to be an audience in the theatre. Great staging though that is, perhaps even better than the London original.

Big! [press reels] Broadway

Shubert Theatre, New York, NY, USA 

1996 Pro 9 DVD
  Tech Details: NTSC, Full screen / 4:3, Dolby Digital, Chapters 5 mins
The full, unedited press reels, filmed with a single camera, camera that can flip around somewhat during the ensemble scenes but mostly is good and steady Sound is soundboard but only on the right stereo channel, although this does even on at times,  and somewhat on the quiet side.. Most of the main numbers are included as are a few scenes although the cuts between them can be somewhat sudden. And there's a permanent on screen time code bottom centre.

Big! Springfield Muni Opera Springfield, Illinois, USA 2/7/03 Pro 9 DVD
  Tech Details: NTSC, Full screen / 4:3, Dolby Digital, 143 mins, Chapters 5 mins
Single tripod mounted pro shoot. Camera is has perfect view of the entire outside stage, and knows where to look at all times Picture is good and clear but its the sound that lets this down a bit. Clearly pure soundboard (no audience noise) it was recorded way too loud, and only on the left channel this causes distortion on the higher notes, and during some of the ensemble singing. which is a great shame as the all-volunteer - and rather young - community theatre cast puts everything they can into this performance of the musical, which has been re-worked, with extra songs from its short Broadway run.

But I'm A Cheerleader London Reading The Hospital Club, London, UK 6/12/13 Pro 10 -- MP4
  Tech: PAL, 640*360, AAC, 118mins,
Comments: The first London reading of the musical based on the 1999 movie. It takes place is a small room with the last lined up along the back wall, reading/singing their lines from the librettos on lecterns. Stage directions and movements are read out. Single camera shooting head on captures everything. Sound is perfect, but can be out of balance. Performances are great.

Single camera filming from the balcony on the left. Good clear view of the main sections of the stage, but missing some of the fringes. Occasional heads and some hidden moments, but not often. Mostly wide stage wide shots, with some medium, buy only a few close ups but with so much happening on stage that's not a bad thing. Sound is perfectly clear.

Broadway Minskoff Theatre, New York, NY, USA 25/1/03 Cam 9 DVD
  Tech Details: NTSC, Full screen / 4:3, Dolby Digital, 133 mins,
Single camera shooting from the balcony with a pretty good view of the central part of the stage. A few bits of heads in the way during wide shots but otherwise fairly unobstructed with some nice close ups Sound is very good to excellent. This is the last night of Jim Steinman's troubled musical in it's Broadway incarnation that included rather too much humour for its own good, some of which is unnecessarily rude. Just see how many references to other Steinman songs you can spot.

  Tech Details: NTSC, Full screen / 4:3, Dolby Digital, 98 mins, Chapters 5mins
Single camera filming from either a low balcony, or the back of high ranked stalls.  View is generally good, although some heads to drift into view on occasion, if the action moves to either far side of the stage. Sound is good.  The plot of this short lived tour, is somewhat different to the film, missing two main characters of Matthew and Tommy and with some of the songs appearing in a different order leaving Tommy Tune on stage nearly all of the time and doing a sterling job too.

Single camera filming from the rear of the balcony to the right of the stage. Picture is mostly clear and very sharp, although does show some slight signs of breaking up, especially if there is a lot of motion on stage. Some heads do block the very front lip of the stage and there are a few black outs plus some searching around for the action but that's to be expected from this high energy show. Sound though is near perfect throughout. Disc is authored to a high standard with full song indexing, plus an added title containing scans of the Playbill from the performance.

Single camera filming from the balcony to the left of center stage.Good clear view of the entire stage with some nice close ups Sound is very good. The story of John Lennon's life, mixed with a lot of his songs. but with a slightly confusing set up, with several people playing the different roles, often at the same time! And the all female 'Beatles' are a little odd, if good. Therefore its not really a great surprise the show didn't last for that long. However, many of the vocal performances are very good. and the humor is very in keeping with John's attitude to life.

A few heads in shot during wide shots and some wondering which can be forgiven given the nature of the performance which was the first of just three.

Single camera filming from the balcony, center on to the stage but with a rail & heads occasionally appearing. However whilst Act2 is complete, there is a 43minute section in the middle of act1 that is missing. There are also several blackouts during the remaining footage and occasional wondering, but its a new show that's understandable.. Picture is slightly washed out by the lights, but reasonably crisp and sharp all the same. Sound is mostly good but with some 'rustling'.
