I'm bored of Mr. Zadan and Mr. Meron and I wish they'd stop mangling good properties, but with their kind of ego the mangling knows no bounds, I'm afraid.  And are they doing the Broadway Peter Pan or some other Peter Pan?  I'm sure they'll try to offer Peter to Kristin Chenoweth or maybe if they do enough drugs they'll offer it to Idina Menzel.

I'm trying to decide what to do about food - do I want to eat anything else (my salad today was pretty low-cal - I figure even with the piece of bread and butter I had it's only about six hundred calories, plus I jogged and then did all that heavy sweaty lugging).  So, I can definitely eat something, but what is the question.  Do I want a candy bar to assuage my sweet tooth, or do I want someting a bit more substantial like an entire pizza (only kidding, although I would like an entire pizza - let there be no doubt).

Oh, and they did bring a dessert tray to the table - I abstained, but my favorite dessert was a big glob of whipped cream.  That was the dessert.

Good Evening!

Hmm... It took me a while to log on the site too.  I first tried to log on around 8:30, and nothing was working.  Finally got connected about 10-15 minutes ago.

A mere thirty postings until my new plateau.  That will be the ginchiest.  It could happen tomorrow or the next day, depending on my posting proclivities.

I just heard about the Lance Bass thing today. When my sis called she mentioned it.  She mentioned it because of the Reichen/Amazing Race connection. I was actually really surprised. Not sure why.

I haven't heard if Mr. Bacharach is ill - he does now look his age and he's always been emaciated-looking and too thin.

I must also confess that the Lance Bass confession took me by surprise as well.  Frankly, I'm not sure I even know how to pronounce his last name.

Is it Reichen with a "ch" as in Channukah?  Or a regular "Ch" sound?

Maybe I'm just lucky, I got in every time I tried.  On the other hand, I've been drinking wine and haven't tried too much

I'm almost at post #2750.  That strikes me as a nice round number somehow.  

And if you've ever been struck by a nice round number, you know how painful that can be.

Why "Peter Pan" AGAIN??  Why can't they pick something that hasn't been done at all??  Or better yet, something that was done very poorly and that they can improve on?? :P



I agree completely. However, their reasoning is that this will be a film rather than simply a filmed version of a stage performance. So, I guess in that regard it'll be different, but I'd rather see something we haven't seen before.

Hmmm, being struck by a round number may feel better than being struck by a bicycle messenger....that pain I am familiar with

I do have a ask BK question:

You recorded the unused/dropped/cut song from FOLLIES called "It Wasn't Meant To Happen" as a solo (Michelle Pawk).  The revue Marry Me a Little used it as a duet.

Do you know what character or characters the song was originally written for?

I'm back from SWEENEY TODD, the last great opera of the 20th Century, and Judy Kaye was not in; I saw Patti Lupone.  I've seen the original cast, the dreadful TEENY TODD of the early 1990s and now this, which was better than the 1991 version.  This new version, which I think is another example of critics raving over the second-rate, should be titled SWEENEY TODD OR THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET AS PRESENTED BY THE INMATES OF THE ASYLUM OF CHARENTON UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE MARQUIS DE SADE, since a lot of its gimmicks seem lifted from Peter Brooks great epic production of MARAT/SADE fro the Royal Shakespeare Co.  I know that our DR Pogue saw this version in London and loved it.  I might enjoy it if I saw it as an "experimental" piece off-off-Broadway in a basement or tiny space somewhere, but it's a waste of a lot of money.

Those of you who want to see the great Lupone in SWEENEY TODD will do better with the San Francisco Orchestra concert.  The cast in this is almost uniformly excellent but the Anthony who has a strange face with one of those ridiculous little goatees, contorts himself outrageously as he sings, although he sang a beautiful "Joanna," and my friend Donna Lynne Champlin as Pirelli proves it's a role for a tenor; I'd rather see her as the Beggar Woman, but she plays a mean flute and accordion.  The Tobias, Judge Turpin, and Beadle, especially are quite wonderful.  

The production reminds me of the atrocities of Ann Bogart and other "artistes"  in nonsensical direction; it's a SWEENEY TODD for people who either already know the story or don't care what the story is.  I miss the gothic horror of the Beadle's body falling out of the chute and landing at Tobias' feet, I miss actors actually relating to each other in a scene, which hardly ever happens in this production.  I liked the orchestration much better than I anticipated, but I don't want to see Anthony walk into a scene with Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett while dragging around a cello.  The words of THE GOLDEN APPLE, it's a fraud.

And are they doing the Broadway Peter Pan or some other Peter Pan?

Definitely the Broadway PETER PAN/Charlap-Leigh/Styne-Comden and Green. Meron mentioned that he has been wanting to do this since he and Jule Styne talked about it when they produced the Bette Midler GYPSY.
