Today, I'm sleepin in (all my noise making devices will be silenced!)!  My friend Margo and I are planning seeing a movie, but we haven't yet decided which movie.  I'm sure we'll dine either before or after it.  And that's today's plan.  Otherwise, while I'm home, I'll be watching TV and deleting things from my DVR.

How was Barefoot in the Park last night?  Well who am I to withhold such information, so I shall tell you.

The audience was great....the performances were fine....a few actors are stepping up and finally taking NOTES.

There was however an unexpected guest appearance.  I was sitting in the lobby watching the show on the monitor....as Act One was ending, I got up to open the front door so folks could step outside if they wished....

And in came a HUGE BLACK DOG.  She walked past me and into the theatre.....looking for her owner who had left her in the car with the windows open....

I followed her in.  I tried to get her to follow me back out....fortunately her owner was in the second row just inside the door....she jumped up and the dog followed her outside....

Much to the amusement of the audience....and myself if all things were to be known.

Live theatre....in a barn....in the country.  I am still perturbed that she would leave her dog in the car.....some people are crazy....

Mervyn LeRoy may not have been the world's greatest director, but he did make some wonderful films.

He was also a nice man; a second mentor to me.

The problems with GYPSY and MARY, MARY was casting, not direction.

Nothing wrong with the casting of Gypsy - plenty wrong with the stodgy direction.  And do you suppose he had no hand in casting Ms. Reynolds.

I may have mentioned those titles on marquees in the 42nd Street before the  1990s.  I checked and I did not imagine it or make it up:  There was indeed a real film called "Bareback in the Park."


Cue the Johnny Mercer - Neal Hefti song: (try not to change "barefoot" to "bareas*ed" or "bareback"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZewJptePXb0

(the actual Johnny Mercer lyric)

Going barefoot in the park,
Where it says, "Keep off the grass,"
Isn't recommended for the very old.

But when you're young and you're in love
The world is beautiful and
I'm not a bit afraid of you catching cold.

Running barefoot through the park,
Searching bareheaded in the rain
For a mid-winter daisy
Seems kind 'o crazy to do.

But come along, my barefoot love,
To the fields that shine with spring.
Though it’s ten below
Let me go
Knee-deep in daisies with you.

"Theater Talk" is ending after many many years!

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/16/theater/theater-talk-cuny-tv-susan-haskins.html


I'd been working on a parody version for quite a while, with the OKs of Michael Riedel and Susan Haskins.  It was happening, and then the development funding left when all the garbage was popping up on google.

Since the show involved money left in an aunt's will, I've used an enigmatic title for the script (which may be changed if the script ever gets on.).

Here is act 1 of "Theater Squawk, or My Dead Aunt Thanks You!" - script for first act at this link:

I recorded episodes but haven't taken time to watch them, so now I'm just watching the performances and fast-forwarding through all the talk.

Listening to the Porgy and Bess master, which just got to me.  Sound-wise, it's improved from the tape but there's no getting around what it was and is - a radio broadcast.  On the tape there was huge rumbling noises - that's all gone now.  But I gotta tell you, the energy coming from that stage and the performers and the conductor is palpable.  I've never heard a Porgy and Bess this electric.  Yes, I've heard brilliant recordings (Houston Grand Opera) and many versions, but the tempos and drive here are like nothing you've ever heard, Porgy and Bess-wise.  It MOVES - it's exactly the way I'd do it if I were to direct it.

Where else can you pay $5.00 for a paper-thin hamburger patty on a cold bun, loaded with fried onions.

When I was a kid, you used to be able to buy one for a quarter and a whole bag for something like $1.50.

Now days, you have to take out a second mortgage to buy a bag of scones.
