The Wizard of Oz is having some sort of revival at the theater inside Madison Square Garden. I know this because they keep playing a commercial with the Cowardly Lion telling everyone to come on by.
This Cowardly Lion really irritates me because the guy who is the actor playing the Cowardly Lion isn’t acting, he’s just trying to mimic the Cowardly Lion from the famous Judy Garland Wizard of Oz – i.e. over the top gay lisp.
Are we to believe that cowards ONLY have lisps that are stereotyped to be that of certain rank and file members of the gay community?
Don’t get me wrong, I realize that people expect a certain thing when they go to see the Wizard of Oz, and at the same time actors and actresses also need to bring something to the table too.
It’s not like all of the Center Squares try and mimic Paul Lynde vocals, but I’d LOVE to see THAT happen…
