YES! YES! YES!
If you haven't seen Strictly Ballroom, get on your Netflix queue right now and order it. It's like Moulin Rouge meets Dirty Dancing meets The Cutting Edge with Australian accents! Superb!
Baz Luhrmann's bringing his directorial debut to the live stage (as he always intended), announcing that a stage musical version of Strictly Ballroom will premiere at Sydney's Lyric Theatre in September 2013. The details of the show are being kept very close to the vest with no word on who will star, what songwriting team will compose the score or if Baz will use existing popular music in the show as he's done with his other musicals.
We don't know - it's been a long time since someone has covered Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time! Might be time for a resurgence!
Whatever he plans to do, however he approaches the project, we have nothing but confidence that this is going to be spectacular, spectacular. He's always said that Ballroom is his most "personal" piece, so we know he's going to do right by it!
We're excited!!! Are U???
