A podcast about sisters, cinema, and showtunes. Every episode, we take a movie and turn it into a musical.
#15 Mrs. Doubtfire: The Musical Version
We're back with another episode of The Musical Version. This time, we're making a musical out of the classic dad-dresses-up-as-female-nanny-to-be-a-better-dad film, Mrs. Doubtfire.
Talking Points: child stars, drag queens, Robin Williams, and the importance of recording in a quiet place.
#14 Guardians of the Galaxy: The Musical Version
We're finally back! We return with an action-filled musical for Guardians of the Galaxy.
Topics of discussion: Chris Pratt's Instagram, space pirates, and jukebox musicals.
TMV Backstage Pass: Hamilton
That's right! The Sisters Leslie saw #HamiltonChi. It was amazing, there was lots of crying, and we want to tell you all about it.
Talking points: Exactly how old is Wayne Brady? Which character would you want to play? How would you turn Hamilton into a movie?
Warning: We do talk about some moments onstage that you won't know about it if you've only listened to the soundtrack. If you're planning to see Hamilton and don't want a few of the visual highlights spoiled, you might want to skip this episode.
#13 Fifty Shades of Gray: The Musical Version
That's right, we went there. Fifty Shades of Gray as a musical—only the Leslie sisters would try to save this plotline with show tunes. This musical might not be destined for the stage, but we sure had fun discussing the possibilities.
Talking points include: dating red flags, quick changes, songs that win Oscars, and how did people actually pay money to see this movie!
#12 Adventures in Babysitting: The Musical Version
Get ready, producers: Adventures in Babysitting is your next musical hit. We're excited to turn this 80s classic into a smash hit about teenage girls, criminal shenanigans, and possibly predatory college boys.
Talking points include: romantic couples of the 80s, West Side Story parodies, Taye Diggs, and cars, cars, cars.
Show inspiration: West Side Story, Tangled, Michael Jackson
#11 Independence Day: The Musical Version
We're fighting for our right to live, to exist... and to sing. Aaron Patterson, Earth Ambassador from the For Aliens, by Aliens podcast, is our special guest. In his honor, we turn one of our favorite action-filled, alien-invasion movies into an over-the-top musical.
Talking points: what's a proscenium, a woman president on stage, and how to introduce a million characters at the top of the show. Bonus: Aaron tries his hand at songwriting.
Show Inspiration: Into the Woods, Little Shop of Horrors, West Side Story
