Somewhere on location in Bosnia, Moira Rose is shaking in her night vests.
On January 30, Annie Murphy had the audacité to appear on The Kelly Clarkson Show and perform the Schitt’s Creek classic “A Little Bit Alexis” in front of a live studio audience and the Serious Actors™ of the Oscar-nominated film 1917. You know, the song her character, Alexis Rose, used to audition for her mother’s local production of Cabaret in season five.
For the uninitiated,Schitt’s Creek (created by father-son duo, Eugene and Dan Levy) follows a formerly wealthy family who loses everything and is forced to live in a ramshackle motel in a town they bought as a joke. What sounds like a pretty surface comedy has pierced the hearts of viewers who have watched the Rose family bond and grow through their misfortune.
The one thing that hasn’t changed is Alexis’ lack of self-awareness, and thank God (a.k.a. Dan Levy) for that. Doubly, thank Clarkson for reviving the instant classic on her show, with her own Texas spin.
