    I saw the ad for this in today's USA Today, I can't wait to see it! The Seattle Times gave it a positive review.

    Check your local listings for air times.

    Oh, this is such a great film of the stage show, too!

    (I've had the R2 DVD for more than a year and watch it ocassionally). The R1 DVD is supposedly came out on 11/18 and it's supposed to be 16x9, too!

    Hugh Jackman is sensational in this.

    I've also had the R2 for a while. Can't imagine why that edition was panned and scanned, since this was clearly composed for 16x9. I picked up the newly released R1 last Tuesday and happily, it *is* widescreen.

    Definitely will be worth checking out. Hugh Jackman clearly has what it takes to move beyond Wolverine and do just about anything - sing, dance, comedy, drama, action, you name it. And he doesn't let fame go to his head, either, he considers himself just a regular guy. Now that's cool in my book. [​IMG]

    WOW. Hugh Jackman was absolutely fabulous, I'd love to see him sing on the big screen.

    Thanks for the link, Glenn.

    The website for the Great Performances series has a couple of video clips of Hugh Jackman in the show, for the curious.

    Great Performances: An Oklahoma Primer

    Some PBS stations, by the way, aren't showing this until this weekend.

    No HDTV, apparently.

    Here's another review of the DVD by DVD Savant.

    I just ordered the DVD from DeepDiscountDVD.com for only $14.63 after the new 20% off coupon code (see Coupons & Bargains forum).
