Good morning, all! Yesterday's rehearsal went very well. The cast came in in tiers, so we began with David Lutken and the little boy learning "Snowman on the Mountain," which s a funny song written by David and DJ, the director. Then all the men learned "Goold Old Mountain Dew" and their version of "I Wish I Was Single Again." By this poit the ladies had arrived and they learned their version of "I Wish I Was Single Again" and the two tunes work in counterpoint. Before Ian arrived and we did my new arrangement of "I Wonder As I Wander," we worked on "The West Virginia Mine Disaster." The rest of the rehearsal was spent on learning the complete opening sequence from scraps of many pages of music that I'd photocopied from books.  Last night, after the whole sequence was solid, I put the shebang together and we'll learn today if I remembered it all correctly.

Last night I completely vegged out, mostly looking at the new edition of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and epsodes of BONES on TNT. My subway/bus reading material is Congreve's WAY OF THE WORLD, a comedy I've never read before, and when I finish it, I'll begin MURDER AT THE MASQUERS.

This morning our rehearsal is at CAP 21 on West 18th Street, and I may stop in Academy Records on my way back uptown. I need some Gilbert and Sullivan recordings from the 1920s.

After only 16 hours of rehearsal we're in pretty good shape. The show seems a little "Jesus and Mary" heavy so we cut two numbers for tomorrow's presentation, and I think it will play well. Since it's all music, everyone's thinking far more of their music than their characters, but it's only after 16 hours. I'm just hoping someone likes what we've assembled. The cast is a wonderful group of people and I really appreciate their offering their time and talents .

I will take a break, get a bit of lunch and some allergy meds. After that, it's back to proofreading EILEEN scores

I've been looking up Old Maid songs for one of the characters in our show. We've got the holiday side of things covered very well, but I think we need a few character moments. I just sent the director lyrics for two comic songs, "Poor Old Maid" and "Old Maid's Song," and a sad one, "The Wagoner's Lad." I think the married coal mining couple need something, too, but I'll wait to get through this round and see what happens. My favorites:

POOR OLD MAID
 (from Virginia)
Here I am, as you can see, poor old maid
All the way from Kankakee, poor old maid
My disposition's very mild
I'm just as meek as a little child
And for a husband I am wild, poor old maid

My younger sisters all are wed, poor old maid
I live at home, I'm nearly dead, poor old maid
I pull my nightcap o'er my head
No loving words to me are said
Alone at night I go to bed, poor old maid

I dreamed a dream the other night, poor old maid
Oh that dream was out of sight, poor old maid
I dreamed a man my window scaled
His moustache brushed my cheek so pale
I woke and found it was the tomcat's tail, poor old maid!

THE WAGONER'S LAD
   (Eastern Kentucky)
O hard is the fortune of all womankind
We're always controlled and we're always confined
Controlled by our families until we are wives
Then slaves to our husbands the rest of our lives.

    O bury me beneath the willow
    Beneath the weeping willow tree
    And if he comes he'll find me sleeping
    And perhaps he'll weep for me.

I am a poor girl, my fortune is bad
One time I was courted by the wagoner's lad
We courted a while and I gave him my heart
But as we grew older, we drifted apart.

    O bury me beneath the willow
    Beneath the weeping willow tree
    And if he comes he'll find me sleeping
    And perhaps he'll weep for me.

Did anybody see the American Idol finale last night? There were  a lot of big stars performing. I think the most noteable was Lady Gaga. I thought what she did was quite interesting. But totally inappropriate for American Idol. They have such a young fanbase. And her performance was 18+.  I am shocked that they would show something like that knowing how young their fans are.

This is funny...I think:

I just got a message from a friend of mine on FB...somebody I've known for years and did a play with back in college.

Her FB account had, obviously, been hacked, since this was an offer for me to go to a particular website where I could make $150K.

So, I sent my friend a message on FB, asking if she sent me that message, and "she" immediately replied, "Yes," and that I should go to that site.

And, while I'm typing a reply, "she" starts a chat session with me.  "Yes," she says "I am ***".

This goes back and forth a couple of times, and then I ask her: "If you're really ***, what did you play in the show we did together (answer: a mermaid) and where did we do it (Penthouse Theater at the UW)?

"Don't you trust me?"

"Sure I do.  Answer the question."

So, while I'm waiting for an answer, I phone ***...and she answers and, of course, knows nothing about this.

Then, I write in the chat session: "I'm talking to you on the phone right now.  Why don't you know that?"

Suddenly, they were off line.

I'm wishing Paul well.  He hates to camp and has no good camping memories, but this weekend he's going canoeing and camping with some hard core group of democrats in Northern Wisconsin.   He also hates tents etc.   The weather forecast is cold and wet with scattered thunderstorms.  LOL, this is SO not his cup of tea.  I can't wait to hear what he says when he comes back.   I told him to be sure and take lots of dry socks

I think DR Ben has some very fine viewing ahead of him this weekend. DUCHESS OF DUKE STREET is an old favorite of mine--I've watched it countless times--but I wonder if it's more of a woman's film. Ben, I'd be interested in your (and others) feedback on this. It resonates very strongly with me; I wonder how others take to it.

keith liked it.

LOL, i hope he knows what leaves to stay away from....I am really amused that he's taking this trip.  It's SOOO not him.  It will either be fabulous or a total fiasco.  I really hope he has a good time.  He's been working really hard lately and deserves some time away.  He does like to canoe, so that part will be good....unless it really is 45 degrees and raining, lol

After only 16 hours of rehearsal we're in pretty good shape. The show seems a little "Jesus and Mary" heavy so we cut two numbers for tomorrow's presentation, and I think it will play well. Since it's all music, everyone's thinking far more of their music than their characters, but it's only after 16 hours. I'm just hoping someone likes what we've assembled. The cast is a wonderful group of people and I really appreciate their offering their time and talents .

I will take a break, get a bit of lunch and some allergy meds. After that, it's back to proofreading EILEEN scores

Title: Re: THESE NOW IMMORTAL NOTES
Post by: elmore3003 on May 26, 2011, 08:04:58 PM
I sent the director, for his notes to the audience tomorrow these memories of my gradmother's home in the winter in a "holler" of the Cumberland Mountains not far from Louisa, KY:
The setting for most of the piece is in the common room of the farmhouse, which is probably a log cabin of some sort with "improvements" over the years. The illumination is from the bright sunlight, until it gets darker, and kerosene lamps. The farm probably has three rooms, maybe four at most: bedroom, kitchen, the bedroom where the children slept, and that may be it. There might be a "parlor," which would be the common room for socializing with a dinner table and a fireplace. There might be a small harmonium or parlor organ; my father's aunt had one, and my grandmother had a player piano that no longer worked. During the day, with all the cooking, the house would be relatively warm, but once the dinner was finished, it would become very chilly unless you were close to the fire or stove.

There might also be a shabby rather tacky pine Christmas tree set up and decorated with popcorn strings, ribbons etc. and possibly a few stockings for the children, which would be filled with walnuts, an orange or two, peppermint sticks, maybe a small doll or car. When the characters enter, they'd be dressed warmly, so there would be some carting of winter garments, probably to the bed they have to clear for Joy later, and Curleen would offer hot cider, maybe, or cups of herbal teas, maybe a little festive peach or cherry wine or brandy for her adult children. I remember my Uncle Jay drank beer and used to give it to his baby granddaughter, which really pissed off my mother.

My grandmother always made huge 7-layer cakes of various flavors: a layer of white cake, then a layer of chocolate, then a layer of white, then a layer of coconut, then chocolate. etc. and this was always on display on a cake server on the table. At some point, I suppose they've got to have some food or something to fill them up for the trip home. The ladies, when arriving at Curleen's would bring pies, hot dishes, like beans, or fried chicken, or other foul, possibly rabbit or deer, and Curleen would probably cook up a ham, cornbread, biscuits, maybe a fruit salad, and from her canning, pickled beans, pickled corn, tomatoes, etc. My grandmother also canned eggs which terrified me. She'd also have fresh-churned butter, various jellies and jams, apple butter, and sorghum molasses, which I hated.


Curleen is the name of the family matriarch in our show, played by the fabulous Deb Lyons. David Lutken is playing her husband Ulysses "Lessy Boy," Jarrod's playing her son who works as a coal miner.Julie Foldesi, who was in SOUTH PACIFIC, plays his wife Della. Mimi Bessette is playing Curleen's sister, who lost her husband in a mining disaster. The cast is really fantastic.

My earliest memories of my grandmother's house are how cold it was, especally upstairs where we slept under enormous piles of quilts and blankets because there was no heat. There was a stove in the dining room and a fireplace in the living room, but if you went more than 6 feet away from it, you froze. I don't believe there was electricity in the house until around 1956. She had no indoor plumbing until my dad installed it around 1966.

One of the packages contained a 16mm print of a film that we're issuing the soundtrack for, or, for which we're issuing the soundtrack.  It's never been on any home video in the US, although I did purchase a French DVD which was, unfortunately, IN French with no subtltles and it's a longer version of the film and it also includes a completely different musical score - in other words, it did me no good whatsoever.
Title: Re: THESE NOW IMMORTAL NOTES
Post by: bk on May 26, 2011, 08:22:56 PM
So, for the first time in probably fifteen years, I lugged out Ye Olde 16mm projector and ran a 16mm print.  This print was a pan and scan of a scope film and completely faded to purple.  But, I was able to see how the music was used (the music editor basically just used what she wanted where she wanted - the score was recorded by reel number, so it was easy for me to assemble it - that said, that assembly does not resemble the film's use of the score at all - and I don't give a flying Wallenda), and, more importantly, I was able to write track titles and I took some notes for the writing of the liner notes, which I've now got to add to the pile. 
Title: Re: THESE NOW IMMORTAL NOTES
Post by: bk on May 26, 2011, 08:23:24 PM
After that, I watched a bit of the French DVD of the same film, just to see what was cut in the American version.
Title: Re: THESE NOW IMMORTAL NOTES
Post by: bk on May 26, 2011, 08:24:05 PM
By that time, it was simply too late to watch anything else.  I also have to make an order for the Gardenia show, I have to get some writing done, and I guess that's what I'd better do.

Thanks, DR Ginny. I only spent the first 60 years of my life trying to escape that past, and now I wish my dad were alive to be at tomorrow's presentation. I just hope that someone in tomorrow's audience sees something in what we're doing beyond a lot of country yokels escaped from the Grand Ol' Opry.

It's certainly been a nostalgia trip!

This is funny...I think:

I just got a message from a friend of mine on FB...somebody I've known for years and did a play with back in college.

Her FB account had, obviously, been hacked, since this was an offer for me to go to a particular website where I could make $150K.

So, I sent my friend a message on FB, asking if she sent me that message, and "she" immediately replied, "Yes," and that I should go to that site.

And, while I'm typing a reply, "she" starts a chat session with me.  "Yes," she says "I am ***".

This goes back and forth a couple of times, and then I ask her: "If you're really ***, what did you play in the show we did together (answer: a mermaid) and where did we do it (Penthouse Theater at the UW)?

"Don't you trust me?"

"Sure I do.  Answer the question."

So, while I'm waiting for an answer, I phone ***...and she answers and, of course, knows nothing about this.

Then, I write in the chat session: "I'm talking to you on the phone right now.  Why don't you know that?"

Suddenly, they were off line.

 ;D






DR Druxy - I'd be sure to change your FB password too just in case.

I certainly would go up there to see Judy - that is if I had any interest in the show.  But, who knows.  Just have to get through the next week without either exploding or imploding.  I should be writing right now but I'm all in and can't.  So, after the mix session in the morning and picking up some tapes from the MGM vault and before our rehearsal, I shall try to do some writing.  Then on Saturday I should have at least three hours to write, although I also have to do the contextual commentary for the Gardenia show and the new liner notes.  See what I mean?
