Take a Chance on Me: Our screen panel weighs in on Mamma Mia, Cats, and what makes a good movie musical
Every Monday, the q screen panel convenes to look at big stories happening in the film and television worlds. This week, arts writer Tina Hassannia and CBC's Amanda Parris join guest host Chris dela Torre to discuss a new movie that hit theatres this past weekend, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again.
It's a sequel to the first film, released 10 years ago, which was based on the hit Broadway musical, built around some of ABBA's biggest hits. And if you haven't heard, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats will also soon be made into a film. The q screen panel talk about what makes these movie musicals worth watching.
Hassannia and Parris also touch on the FX television series Pose, which has just been renewed for a second season, and discuss why this series has been so groundbreaking for queer representation on screen.
Listen to the full conversation above.
