Beautiful ‘Dangerous Beauty’

We here at the studios have a secret addiction – the 1998 movie ‘Dangerous Beauty’, about a poet/courtesan in Renaissance Venice. Have you seen it? If the answer is no, then do yourself a favor and get a copy, and then curl up and enjoy yourself the next rainy afternoon that comes along. The dresses! The romance! The city! It’s eyeball-pleasing ladyporn.

Luckily, somebody out there heard the secret desire that we never knew we had, to see this most excellent movie turned into a musical. So, starting in February the Pasadena Playhouse will stage the musical version, with book by Jeannine Dominy, lyrics by Amanda McBroom, and music by Michele Brourman. And starring as the smart and luscious Veronica Franco, the titular Dangerous Beauty, is the crazy talented Jenny Powers, who is also so beautiful it’s really unfair to mere mortals (the equally crazy talented and studly James Snyder is the male lead, so, really, hubba hubba all around!). Some photos have been posted on the show’s facebook page, and judging from this, the visuals will be as mind-bogglingly gorgeous as in the movie. We can’t wait!
