For Mr. Barnum (or anyone else enamored of Mr. Tom Wopat), a review from the New York Times (Stephen Holden) of Wopat's new cabaret act in the Oak Room of the Algonquin

Music Review | Tom Wopat
Rugged Leading Man Is a Little Bit Broadway, a Little Bit Country

By STEPHEN HOLDEN
Published: March 11, 2009

Tom Wopat strolled into the Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel on Tuesday evening, crooning a flawless a cappella rendition of “Last Night When We Were Young.” Halfway through the song the pianist Tedd Firth slid in behind him, and Mr. Wopat’s wonderful new show, “Love Swings,” was off and running. Following them every step of the way were David Finck on bass and Bob Malach on tenor sax.

Because both Mr. Wopat and Frank Sinatra are saloon singers who imprint their personalities on everything they perform, they are kindred spirits, although their voices are not much alike. Mr. Wopat’s version of the Sinatra hit “That’s Life” stripped this pugilistic anthem of much of its combativeness and turned it into an easygoing “One for My Baby”-style jaunt, without the alcoholic content.

Unlike Sinatra, Mr. Wopat can be a rugged Broadway leading man (“Annie Get Your Gun,” “City of Angels”) when the occasion demands.

Then, without straining to be anyone other than himself, he can strap on a guitar and deliver honky-tonk country-blues (Delbert McClinton’s “Maybe Someday Baby”) with the casual authority of a veteran who has played a thousand nights at juke joints, or a rural Mississippian (his languid, folksy rendition of “Ode to Billie Joe”).

What he shares with Sinatra is an ability to live inside whatever he sings. His flexibility doesn’t seem to be a matter of self-conscious role playing but an expression of his far-reaching musical tastes and personal experience. A similar range applies to the ages of his songs’ narrators. Singing a slow bossa nova-flavored version of the Beatles’ “And I Love Her,” in a boyishly smooth voice, he conveyed the rapture of a young man in the throes of first love. (Mr. Wopat is 57.) A similar sense of a somewhat older man spellbound while on a romantic journey infused his version of Judy Collins’s “Since You’ve Asked.”

His most refreshing reinvention was a brisk, understated version of “Over the Rainbow” that took the song back from the hundreds of histrionic belters who have used it as a platform for broadcasting their self-pity. Mr. Wopat treated it as an expression not of defeat but of possibility. As he sang the words, “Why, oh, why can’t I?,” it sounded as if he meant: “Why not? Let’s give it a try.”

Tom Wopat performs through March 21 at the Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel, 59 West 44th Street, Manhattan; (212) 419-9331, algonquinhotel.com

Good morning, all! BK, these notes for the last week have been amazing.

So, for me the day is made up of Babes In Toyland and Frank Loesser; our office goal is to turn into the Institute within the next month Volume 1 of the Babes full score (the volume containing the show and its appendices) with its critical report, the piano-vocal score, libretto, and all notes and man report. Volume 2 of the full score (German version, commercial stock arrangements and Herbert's Concert Overture) is still in prep. I want to finish Act One of Loesser tomorrow because I've got a ton of notes to write up and turn it in. The next two weeks are tied up with Babes and Ron Raines' April 7 concert with an April 1 band rehearsal.

BK, loved today's notes.  Been there and know what you're talking about.  I'm always amazed by people who think once you've been on stage or TV, that you're in show biz and you've got it made.  I've know so many people who've been on top and been on the bottom and then been back in the game.  It's an ongoing struggle and you never have got it made.  It's also the most emotionally debilitating business in the world, where you can be riding the crest and, a phone call later, be plummetting into the depths of despair.  I always tell people:  "If you can be a happy, whole person doing anything else, go do it."  Because this is a sickness.  A grand sickness, but a sickness nonetheless.  Even we lucky ones who have managed to eke out lengthy careers and had some measure of success, still have to climb down in the trench and fight the same battle each day.

BK,

I read your notes and, as I've told you privately several times, the details may be different, but our stories are essentially the same.

I, also, took on a Hollywood big shot early on...which certainly did major damage to my (writing) career path.

Yes, even though I was in the right, it was a stupid thing to do.

But, looking back, I'm not really sorry that I did it.

It's very important for me to be able to look at myself in the mirror every morning, and had I not taken this guy on, I might not be able to do that.

Remember what Oliver Pettridge says: "A Man Must Stand for Something".

Also, like you, things changed for me in the 1990s.  I'd sold my first screenplay in 1989, then during the 1990s, I got involved with Roger Corman, who kept me quite busy for most of the decade and well into the new century.  Not all of the films I did for him are classics, but I made a good living [He paid me quite well.] and I had a satisfying writing (with some directing) career.

Yes, there's been a lot of depression over the years, but I can honestly say (at age 68), it's been a great ride and I am looking forward to the opportunities in Austin.

It did. With Kurt Peterson and Victoria Mallory as Tony and Maria, produced by Richard Rodgers. I was surprised that RCA Victor, who recorded so many of the Lincoln Center summer productions, ignored this one.

Speaking of WEST SIDE STORY, one of my very first publicity clients was David Winters, who played "Ah-rab" in both the Broadway and movie version of the play.

When I started with him, he was choreographing an Elvis Presley movie.

Druxy, as you say, you've got to be able to look at yourself in the mirror each day.  Some people in the Biz, apparently don't, and so anything resembling morals or ethics or just common sense evades them. 

But like you, I need to gape at my mug in the mirror and feel comfortable that a fairly honest and honourable human being is staring back at me.  Some of my battles with bigshots have been legendary and more than once been played out in fairly public arenas, some certainly impeded my career, some may have enhanced it.  But a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do and let the blood splatter where it falls.

I've heard nothing but great things about Austin as a city and I know it has a lively Arts community.  Good luck there.

Hello all!

This morning I went to see my surgeon.  He is pleased with my progress.  Even though I am eating very little by mouth he thinks I am doing well for only a week of eating.  He also suggested that I could go to my original Ear Nose and Throat and have a tube inserted into my right ear to open my ear canal and relieve my deafness.

I called the ENT as soon as I got back and left a detailed message with his receptionist.  I am waiting for a call back.  I am hoping he will tell me he will be able to do the procedure in his office tomorrow (especially as I am now scheduled to be back at work Monday morning!)

Tonight the Vixter and I will be going to the high school to see the production of High School Musical.  This is the production she had to drop out of when she was selected for the All County Chorus. 

The musical is being performed tonight, tomorrow evening, Saturday afternoon and Saturday evening and she has  chorus rehearsal tomorrow evening and most of the day Saturday and the concert is Saturday night.

Her chorus teacher who is directing the musical was very upset about the conflict. Apparently the All County Concert date had been changed after they scheduled the musical  - she had originally set it up so there would be no conflict and then was unable to change the performance dates when the conflict occurred.

Oh well, the Vixter took it all in stride and two of her good friends are in thr ensemble so we shall go and cheer them on!

Thanks for all the nice comments about the notes.  And I don't really have regrets because even in the worst of it it's all taught me and led me somewhere interesting, to areas I might never have visited before (round every corner).  And with taking on Paramount, I was in the right, and I had the proof and in the end no one cared, but good came out of it - they gave us back the film gratis and we were able to give it to another distributor who made a success out of it, especially in New York.  Of course, that irked Paramount even more, because the trade papers made quite a deal of it the week we were the fourth highest-grossing film in the country.

Good Afternoon!

The production meeting went well, and the subsequent vocal rehearsal went well too.  It's always nice teaching a show that really wasn't meant, wasn't written for Singer-singers - at least among the leads and supporting players - except for Ulla ("Now Ulla belt.").  The "kids" had already done a bit of work on their own, and it was nice being able to tell them to "not sing so much".  Once I get the full ensemble on Saturday, then I'll want Singing.

I have spent all afternoon with THE LAST METRO. I've always loved this film, and the Criterion Blu-ray is lush looking. Almendros used lots of warm colors in the photography, and it is just dazzling in high definition. By far the best version of the film I've ever seen. Deneuve is just stunning to look at in this film.

I spent the rest of the afternoon sampling both commentaries. The Depardieu one wasn't very interesting (he shares it with two other folks, one being a historian). He and the other men are much more interested in talking about the politics of the time and rather than reminiscing about making the movie. The other is by Annette Insdorf which is more interesting. She's a Truffaut biographer.

I'm curious if anyone here knows any home remedies for burns.

This is for my arm (i burned it on the oven 2-3 weeks ago). The square where the burn was has mostly healed (it is just a bit pinker than the rest of my arm). But the part in the middle where i stupidly put a bandaid (and it ripped off a bit of skin) has left a mark.


It doesn't seem to want to go away. And i really have no idea what type of cream i can put on it to help it heal.

I've been using my soft laser, which seems to have helped the burn a lot (too bad i didn't think to use that first night).

Thanks if anyone knows any tips.

I went back to the notes and fixed the typos and split them into more paragraphs and also added one thing about The Faculty - I neglected to say that in the mid-90s it sold and got made - point being, you never know.

I wondered why you didn't mention that fact.

My local high school is presenting CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN - starring the daughter of the director.  Said director told the local paper:  "Our version is a little different than the one usually seen.  In ours, the parents are commenting on the action, and then they move into the scene."

The script calls for Frank Jr. and Ernestine to narrate....sort of like the girl in I Remember Mama or Tom in The Glass Menagerie.....but I guess that isn't good enough for this gal.

My client has totally turned his life around.  He's one of those people who got it and got his act together and NOW they go ahead with the prosecution and want to send him to prison. I am so thankful that didn't happen.  I have a feeling I'll be dining with his parents at the lake sometime soon. They insisted that I call them when I'm in the area so they can take me to dinner.  I'm thrilled to say yes.  They are good, kind people and when his mother said "My son was lost for so long, but I finally have him back. I'm so thankful I'm not losing him again" well, that just makes it all worthwhile

Theater Buffs of HHW.....on EBAY the auction site, there are about 26 sets of photos available - each set has 10 photos.

They are from the Joe Crosby Barn Playhouse.  I am guessing they were taken during the late 1940's and early 1950's.  I was so intrigued, I ended up looking at all of the sets.  Each set contains one portrait of a young man with blond hair.....so Joe Crosby must have ended up with a LOT of copies of that pose!  None of the plays or participants are identified.

I can figure out most of the shows, but some of them escape me.  Perhaps other DR's would like to step back in time.

EBAY - search - Joe Crosby Barn Playhouse

(http://www.softlasers.com/pics/home/beurer_softlaser.jpg)

DR Jane a soft laser is a small device that you can use on your face (to build collagen, reduce wrinkles). But you can also use it on scars (which is why i got it). And you can use it on bruises/burns.

I did use the antibiotic ointment for a while after i was sure there would be no infection. But i'm not sure what to put it on it now.

I could post that it is a slow news day in Phoenix: John Travolta's plane is parked at a Phoenix municipal airport.

But that would be a waste of a post.

And we know everyone is going to WUSSBURGER within the hour, so will this really be our first six page day in two years?  Stay tuned...

Don't worry, BK...we WILL get past Page 6!

Black sneakers, white footie-socks, new blue jeans, new Hawaiian shirt that has a dark background with palm fronds and other assorted large leaves on it. :)

Facebook has changed its look again and now, instead of "Status," it's asking for your thoughts or something stupid. I think it's spinach and the hell with it.

Good Evening!

I've been in Charleston for only 36 hours, but it feels like I've already been here a week. -Which is a good thing. I had a very productive day, and then attended the attended the opening night of the theater's production of PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE - which was very good. I would stay and respond and post, but I really do need to sleep. And soon. À demain...

Goodnight.

Had a very full evening oif entertainment. I began by watching almost two solid hours of bonus features on THE LAST METRO. My favorite was almost a half hour with famous Oscar-winning cinematographer Nestor Almendros. Loved hearing him talk about the nine movies he made with Truffaut. He has been much missed in the movie world.

UGLY BETTY had an entertaining outing.









Yes, Baranski was cut from much the same intolerant cloth as Lupone from season one. Still, I enjoyed Betty standing up to her (finally).

GREY'S ANATOMY had some good and bad moments.



















I hated the Chief acting like a big baby. I LOVED Alex finally getting some recognition and the elation on his face was priceless. I am SO tired of Callie's on-going search for love. The three siblings with their stomach cancer were really interesting; loved the ebbing and flowing dynamic between them.

Loved the notes today, BK- interesting to hear an in-depth version of the story. For having gone through some incredibly challenging times, you managed to pull through, and your outlook is remarkable. What incredible experiences you've had!

I'm a bad MT fan, and I have to confess that I've never seen WSS, so...my casting shall go unspoken.

I performed my recital just over a month ago, and I've just received the CD recently. If anyone wants to hear something from the program, I'd be happy to email a file! I haaaaaave....

Non piu mesta, from La Cenerentola, Rossini
La Flute de Pan, from Chansons de Bilitis, Debussy
Le Manoir de Rosemonde, Duparc
Von Ewiger Liebe, Brahms
Nocturne, Barber
Secrets of the Old, Barber
Toothbrush Time, Bolcom
Tale of the Oyster, Porter

And in other news...nothing. It's spring break, and for the first time in 5 years, I've decided to actually take a break rather than work. It's been wonderful! I've gone to the gym every day with my mom, played with my dog, and read like it's my job. Tonight, my parents met the parents of my boyfriend of almost 2 years. Things went well! I don't know why I was so nervous, but it was nice, and delicious pizza was had by all!

I got my Illya Darling Playbill today.  And I heard a rough mix of the opening number which has never been issued before - and it really makes me want to remix the whole album and get rid of all that reverb on reverb, but there's no way to justify what that would cost and how much trouble it would be.

I work for a library system and we've gotten many copies of "Good Night Moon" over the years.  We've also gotten the parody:
