BROADWAY'S MOST UNIQUELY HOT GUY!
This year's festivities were huge on theatricality. The British, lead by director Danny Boyle, do spectacle no one else. Combining ingenious filmed sequences with live theatre, the Olympic stadium was transformed from a gigantic pastoral setting to a mammoth industrial to a fantasy sequence celebrating children's literature and the national healthcare system. There were many highlights: Kenneth Branaugh as the Shakespeare-quoying narrator, James Bond (Daniel Craig) and the Queen parachuting in, Mary Poppins vanquishing Cruella deVil, The Queen of Hearts, Captain Hook and Voldemorte; the stunning midfield cauldron. I especially loved the lit panels in front of every seat, which provided amazing backgrounds for each scene and even the occasional filmed sequence. The silhouette of an Olympic runner, taking "a lap" around the stadium was super cool.
It was a superb production full of giant strokes and subtle details. It made me proud to be a human being.
