I was Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the other day and that made me think. I noticed that quite a bit of the movie musicals from nowadays are usually seen in the past. Take Sweeney Todd for example. It was set during the 1800s. Hairspray is the same way. It was set during the early 1960s. There’s also Chicago, Moulin Rouge!, The Phantom of the Opera, etc. I think that’s part of the reason as to why they’re appealing. I don’t know why, but that’s just what I think.

I was surfing youtube the other day and stumbled across the scene where Terk, Tantor, and their friends found Jane’s camp from the 1999 movie of Tarzan. Anyway, I was reading some of the comments and one of the comments was the scene reminded the person of Stomp! Anyway, as I watched the scene again, I thought the same thing. Trashin’ The Camp does remind me of Stomp! Because if you think about it, both use non-traditional instruments to play percussion music. I just found that interesting. BTW, I had to laugh at the reference to Mrs. Potts and Chip from the 1991 movie version of The Beauty And The Beast.
