Period Drama Challege - March Tag Questions



Wow, we're answering the March tag questions already! I'm astounded how time is flying! You can read the March link-ups HERE. Lots of terrific dramas this month, possibly some you haven't watched! ❤

 March Tag Questions: 
(Answer here in the comments or on your blog)
1. What period dramas did you view in March?
Okaaaaaay, let me think. I watched David Copperfield and Nanny McPhee but haven't reviewed them yet (will definitely review the first). Also watched Anna Karenina and Crimson Peak with Charity, both of which I also intend to review although they'll be quite challenging just because of content issues. And I reviewed The Imitation Game and When Calls the Heart.
2. What is your favorite period drama soundtrack?
Oh boy, I'm so bad about remembering soundtracks. Truly. Can I choose the Jane Eyre musical that only ran on Broadway for 6 months? LOVE that soundtrack! In fact, I should probably review it.

3. If you could attend a ball in a Jane Austen story what would be the color of your ballgown and who would you dance with?
You'll love this. I actually did attend a Jane Austen ball since I was Charlotte Lucas in a theater production of Pride and Prejudice. My gown was a shimmering cream silk (LOVED IT) and I danced with a charming young man who also played Colonel Fitzwilliam (although not in this scene). He was about 8 years younger than myself, but he was quite nice and and an elegant dance partner. The above photo is, in fact, myself!
4. Do you prefer watching period dramas by yourself or with friends/family? Why?
Depends on what it is. Sometimes yes and sometimes no. Right now my family is watching Wanted Dead or Alive with Steve McQueen (tv series) and LOVING it. But I did watch David Copperfield on my own. It really does depend on what it is.

5. What period dramas are you looking forward to viewing in April 2016?
I'm reading Wuthering Heights over on Bookshelves and Daydreams right now, so I'm really salivating to watch the 1939 version with Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon. I'll be watching more of Wanted Dead or Alive and may actually decide to finish Brideshead Revisited with Anthony Andrews and Jeremy Irons (it's just so loooooooooooooong)!

  1. The Imitation Game is brilliant. Also, what a fun story you shared (about going to an Austen ball). Sounds like you had a wonderful time. :)

    1. It was fun being playing a roll in Pride and Prejudice. The ball in the play was just icing on the cake, as it were!

  2. How cool you were in a production of P&P! That must have been enormously fun :-D

    1. Indeed it was, very much so. Although I did suffer a bit of a breakdown halfway through the performances. College full-time, job part-time, and then performances every night for 2 weeks really did a number on me. But looking back, I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. It was delightful.

    2. Yikes! I was in 3 musical productions in college, but only in the chorus, and I didn't have a job, just some work-study I did for about an hour a day. AND we only did like 4 performances.

    3. Let's just say that it showed me my limitations, but also made me realize how much I enjoyed being on the stage. I might try it again someday.
