Good Evening!  -once again

-I have to say, while walking around midtown after the show, both Paul and I commented that it didn't feel that cold.  I think the lack of wind gusts helped in that regard.

And as for Spring Awakening...

It's a hard show to describe in just a few sentences, so I'm not even going to bother.  For now, I shall just say that I liked it.  A lot.  Great cast.  Great band.  Simple, but very effective lighting.  Good sound design.  Etc., etc., etc.

It's definitely not a show for everyone, and the way I'd advise anyone who's thinking about seeing the show would be to show them the song titles.  If they don't flinch at "You're F*cked", then they should like the show.  Or at least give it a fair chance.

And, yes, they do sing with microphones.  And quite well too.

One observation about the Playbill for Spring Awakening:

All 30(!)-something producers are listed and get a bio.

An observation about the curtain call of Spring Awakening:

The band comes forward with the cast for the final set of bows.


-I have to say, when I saw that, I said, "It's about time!"  Yes, a conductor/music director deserves a bow, but he or she is really only as good as the men and women he or she is guiding.

-I also wished I could be up there taking that bow with them.

In any case...

DR elmore - That sounds like a great recital!  I've accompanied the Dvorak "Gypsy Songs" a couple of times.  Not the most pianistic of accompaniments, but well worth the practice time.  Which set did you order?

Which of the Brahms' Zigeunerlieder did they perform?  Aren't there are a couple of sets?  Or am I thinking of the Liebeslieder Waltzes?  Or the Schumann part songs? In any case...

Did you like Zankel Hall?

Well, the radiator/boiler/heating guys weren't able to make it back here this afternoon.  So, they'll be coming in the morning between 8:00-9:00...  Which is OK, since I want to get up early-ish anyway.  I haven't heard any more knocking tonight - they bled the radiator earlier - and the radiator in the kitchen/dining area seems to be providing enough heat right now for the ground floor.

DR MBarnum - Maybe I missed it, but did it make you happy that "Water" got nominated for an Oscar?

Not a album choice of the week for the Grandlads, eh.

The "Wonderful Town" revival had the entire band take bows. (Easy to do since they were already seated on stage)

FOX 411 - Roger Friedman
Quote
'SVU' Crisis Averted: Seen Here First
I told you several weeks ago that NBC was trying not to pay "Law & Order SVU" stars Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay what they wanted after eight years and many Emmy awards and nominations.

Yesterday came the news that the actors will get $330,000 per episode next season. They’re staying even though, frankly, they’re getting less than they deserve.

SVU is one of NBC’s only dependable hits, and it will play in syndication until both actors are great-grandparents. This is what the public doesn’t realize about TV series. The networks and the show’s producers make money way after the stars of shows see their last pennies.

Recently, I discussed this with Larry Hagman. I had always thought he had a piece of "Dallas." He told me he does not.

Hagman is by no means in the poor house, but he does not get any residuals now from “Dallas” playing over and over again on the SoapNet channel. Same for the stars of other hit shows now filling the cable black hole of programming.

So three cheers for Hargitay and Meloni. The next big question at NBC is what to do with the original “Law & Order” series.

Last year, there was a question of possible cancellation. But the new speculation is that NBC will keep it around until it breaks the record for longest-running series ever — and then send it off into rerun history.

So far, "Gunsmoke" holds that honor, at 20 years. This only the 17th season for “Law & Order.”

My iPod is currently playing a soundtrack cue by Philippe Rombi - my favorite of the new crop of film composers.  What melodies.
