I was going to pick Boom Crunch, because I actually like it, but I simply could not cut Last Midnight, so I would probably say neither, sorry :P I mean, Sondheim worked and replaced those songs for a reason.

She was amazing, one of my top 3 actresses ever to play the Baker’s Wife!

We should probably get a trailer next month (September), I think. In fact, that would be our first trailer, since all we have so far is the teaser trailer.

On the Steps of the Palace - Laura Michelle Kelly
Dream. Come. True.
I believe No One Is Alone will be kept, I just do not think it could be cut. We do not know which songs are cut from the movie, since all we have is that leaked screenplay that may not even be real, and things often change in post-production, like the new Sondheim song.
The thing about the Witch and the characters that appear in the Finale is that they not really there, and the morals they teach are directed to the audience, rather than to help move the story along. Each character, based on their story in the musical, is given a moral for the audience to learn from.
I don’t know if that made sense, but basically what I am saying is that it is not really the Witch that is speaking, the audience is simply being tought a lesson from her story. At least that is the way I see it - I may be wrong.
That makes me really happy! Now we just have to wait a few months, and everyone will be able to see it! Hopefully it will be as good as everyone is saying.
Though everybody seems to be worried about the lack of darkness in the movie, I am worried about the exact opposite. It is easy to make a dark movie from a somewhat dark musical (if they will do it or not, I don’t know), but it is hard to ballance the darkness with the comedy, and that is what I want to see.
