What ho! What ho! *scattering confetti*
So, as ye can see, I've decided to just go for this musicals blogathon thing. I think it has the potential to be whole heaps of fun, but I can most definitely use your help spreading the word. *pretty please....?????* (Well, I mean, really it's up to all of you to make the party delightfully party-ish. ;D *clearing throat politely*)
As you can see, I'm narrowing it down to any musicals with either Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire (leaving options for highlighting other names or themes in the future if this becomes any sort of annual thing), but that should provide y'all with lots of options and ideas. As far as entries it can be pretty much anything to do with the theme: so movie reviews, character studies, panegyrics on the score, costume studies, whatever you can dream up!
Just leave your plan/idea here in the comments
and I'll add it to this post so folks can see what you're hoping to
contribute. Unless someone really has their heart set on it, preferably
we wouldn't double any titles, but that rule's subject to adjustment.
There's no limit on how many posts you contribute, so don't feel
dampened if you're feeling really inspired.

Admittedly, folks are busy and this has been such a weird time, I'm not sure if y'all will feel like joining in, but by the same token a little song and dance may be just the ticket. ;) Won't you join me?
P.S. Please remember to grab a button and share far and wide! Thank'ee kindly!
Also, you know how it is when you've been staring at a word too long
and everything starts looking wrong? Usually I'd always spell glamor
thusly, but my computer kept changing it to the British spelling all the
time and I didn't feel like fighting it + it does make a lot of sense.
You're all ok with it as is, right? ;P)
