Having grown up loving the story of Harold Hill and Miss Marion, I was expecting to somewhat unfavorably compare the new Disney version of The Music Man to the absolutely perfect one starring Robert Preston and Shirley Jones. What I didn't expect was Disney turning the quiet librarian as played by Shirley Jones into the hip-swivelling town slut as played by Kristin Chenoweth! And Victor Garber as Mayor Shinn?? PUHLEEZE!! Paul Ford played the bumbling Mayor to perfection..Victor Garber just plays him as mean! I started taping this, as I love Matthew Broderick and have since I first saw him in Brighton Beach Memoirs, but I have to tell you that 10 minutes into the show I turned off the VCR! This is just another one of Michael "The Kiss of Death" Eisner's forays into the ruination of classic American theater.
I guess Michael Eisner doesn't care what he messes with as long as he can pretend that he is Walt Disney on Sunday nights. Why can't he just do what he is supposed to do as Walt's inheritor instead of rewriting classic musicals????
First Rogers & Hammersteins Cinderella, now The Music Man...what's next...The Sound Of Music with Maria being played by a cross-dresser from Taipei?? Enough already Eisner...why don't you just get yourself frozen like Walt and give someone else a chance??
