A stunning musical!
30 September 2003 | by laura-32See all my reviews

I have seen WTKAA perhaps six times and each time I come away from the film dazzled. The choreography in this short film is every bit as good as CHICAGO and the music is better. Bear McCreary's music, from beginning to end, soars. Each scene takes its cue for mood and color from the music, from the sweet solos to the show-stopping ensembles; the whole film is textured with different rhythms and tempos, flawlessly edited. The fifty piece orchestra who performed this music is to be applauded along with the conductor, the orchestrator, and the singers. Amy Keys' voice, when she reaches up and hits that Mozartian Queen of the Night note will raise the hair at the back of your neck. She is stunning. I could listen to Amy Keys sing the phone book. The backup vocals blend beautifully, but remain distinct.

At the LA premiere of this film, people were jumping out of their seats and applauding right in the middle of the film. By the ending credits, the audience was all but jumping out of their skins. If you want a CD of music that will percolate your whole day, get the music from WTKAA. The young talented artists, actors, dancers, musicians, costumers, editors, the whole collective enterprise it takes to make a movie, these people are to be congratulated along with Jon Chu. WTKAA will knock you out.
