I Will Survive – Mike Snell Wins And You Can See Him On Stage Now!
I Will Survive final was last night with musical theatre professional Mike Snell taking out the title and the prize money.
Yes the $250,000 in prize money is fantastic, but unfortunately the show was not the ratings smash they were hoping for to make them household names in Australia.
On the plus side 500,000 people now know his and his cohorts names that did not previous.
The good news is the winner, Mike Snell, is getting good reviews in as Kyle the delivery with a large package in Legally Blonde in Sydney. Hopefully he will soon be able to step up to be leading man in a musical soon as he has now proved he is indeed a triple threat! The show will also be going to Melbourne early in 2013.
I was lucky enough to interview Mike a few weeks back to talk about his time on I Will Survive and Legally Blonde, and he did say that next year he might give it a crack in New York. The interview is here.
Clearly I Will Survive is not getting a second season, however with the success of overseas shows Glee and Smash on our screens it would be interesting to know if a network has ever considered making a similar musical type show here.
