Romy and Micheles Tickets
The 90’s most loveable ditzies are back, this time on stage. Yes, that’s right; Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion is back at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre. Thirty years have elapsed since the release of this cult-favorite movie and yet its fame has not died down. Newer generations continue to stumble across and fallen in love with the film’s two protagonists.
Bringing it on stage has proven a success, with fans of the movie praising this version of the story. The play is a musical, so the original’s well-quipped, iconic dialogues are presented this time around in song. It is an experience unto itself and one you would not like to miss out on. Romy and Micheles tickets are available now.
Who are Romy and Michele and why are they famous?
The amount of fan following that Romy and Michele have received may be puzzling for an uninformed person. The movie was by no means a blockbuster. However, there was something in screenplay writer Robin Schiff’s portrayal of the two leads that endeared them to the public eye. Despite appearing to be stereotypical self-absorbed, deluded dumb blondes, they have hearts of gold and a quick wit about them. Since they exist in a universe where appearances are all that matter; Romy and Michele are its unbeatable queens.
Within this heightened world, the two girls humanize their characters by acting flustered around their high school love interests, even after so much time elapsing. They seem relatable when discussing a diet chart which exists around candies and Doritos and also while trimming and hemming their clothes for an appropriate night out. Perhaps the most striking feature that has attracted viewers to Romy and Michele is this dichotomy; no matter how larger than life they may appear, their inner insecurities are just as real as everyone else’s.
The Musical Treatment
Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion becomes the latest in a long line of movies to get staged as a musical. In fact, Stephanie Renee Wall, who stars as Michele in this show, has recently completed a run as Elsa in Disney’s Frozen Live on Broadway. Theater, more often than not, appears to pay homage to the work that is being staged. It’s usually more celebratory than any other medium/s. Therefore, films that have normally gained a great degree of following tend to find their way in commercial theatres.
This particular movie has had buzz generated about it for over thirty years. The show stars Cortney Wolfson as Romey and Stephanie Renee Wall as the other lead. They attend their high school reunion and end up lying about their careers to impress their former class. The movie becomes the ultimate test of their seemingly unbreakable friendship as they strive to protect their lie.
The play is in previews at present and officially opens its run on July 2nd at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre. Given to the play being directed by Tony nominee Kristin Hanggi and a book by the original screenplay writer Robin Schiff, this production is attracting a lot of buzz around it. And rightly so because it has been twelve years in the making.
As a result, it has been carefully crafted to pay an exemplary tribute to the film, while at the same time introducing new tangents to its plot and characterization. The look of the musical is exactly the same as the original. Upon first setting eyes upon it, the audience is set back into this nostalgia for the 90’s and this film. The main character’s iconic outfits feature in this production, with a few new equally bold ones as well. The musical numbers too are representative of the 80’s jams that feature in the film.
As far as the alterations go, characters have been altered and tend to have a different fate on-stage. As a result, an audience familiar with the original storyline may be thrown off guard as well. Since the original movie has content that may not be appropriate for a wide theater audience, some of the original script has been censored. Schiff, however, has asserted that while some content may have been omitted, the tonal quality of the original and this production is exactly the same.
The musical offers the audience insight that the film never could, given to the difference in exposure between the two. An example cited by Schiff is of a flashback in the film where a young Michele locks herself in a bathroom stall after being bullied. The musical shows what happens after this scene as well, where Romy coaxes her out of the stall with a heartfelt conversation. “They’re able to feel better because they have each other which is how everyone feels about their best friend.”
