Whether he’s working with the war-ravaged jungles of Tropic Thunder, the athletic glory of Dodgeball or the sultry espionage in Spy, Shapiro says that when he scores a comedy, he wants to make viewers care the way they would with a drama. – NPR
Over the years, Lakeshore Records has released numerous scores by composer Theodore Shapiro. From the recent Central Intelligence (get it here) to Zoolander 2, or comedy classics like Tropic Thunder and Blades of Glory, we love NPR’s observation (read the story here) about Theodore’s treatment of his comedy scores. He explains, “I feel like comedies often work best when the audience is just simply invested in those movies as stories.”
