Theater Thursday


Welcome to Theater Thursday! It's a fun place to be! This week the majority of the U.S. has been so cold and wintery! For that fact, we're taking a look at the movie New In Town

Lucy(Zellweger) a Vice President hopeful travels from her cushy Miami, Florida lifestyle to the small town of New Olm, Minnesota. There she must oversee a factory through a revitalization and possible downsize. 
Being the new girl in town, she's received with a cold reception, that's almost as cold as the weather. The only person willing to be her friend is Blanch, her secretary. Who loves to scrapbook, makes tapioca pudding and bring Jesus into everyday conversation. Blanch also brings Ted(Connick Jr) into Lucy's life. 
Ted & Lucy don't see eye to eye which creates a volatile relationship. After a freak accident in the snow, Lucy learns that living in a small town isn't as bad as she once thought. She also becomes faced with the fact that she'll have to choose between putting her career first or doing the right thing. 

Fun Fact: This movie was actually filmed in Winnipeg, Canada. During filming the temperatures reached -55 degrees F. 

If you've never seen this movie, it's definitely worth watching. It's cute and I couldn't help fall in love with Harry Connick Jr.
