DR Jed,
Forgive me, but your latest chronicle had me in stitches.

Oh please, laugh away, one and all, all and one.  Goodness knows I am!!! :D  This entire production has had a disconcerting Waiting for Guffman-esque feel since day one, so now I get to be like Corky going on for Johnny Savage!  Nothing left to do but laugh, laugh, laugh.

Nightmare SoPac casting... Loving the suggestions so far, particularly Stritch as Liat.  Ha!  Going off JMK's post, I think I'd have to cast myself as Emile's young son, Jerome.  That is, of course, unless JMK wants to reprise his prized role. :D

Opera... Carmen

I don't really know from ballet.

Elmore3003 and Panni hope you feel better by the end of the day.

JMK-great Gabe news!  

RPL I like your idea of the note & tipping ahead of time.  I am a bit curious that it works since more than not I find the maids at hotels donít speak English.

Not to forget Jed-  ;D ;D  You should be happy since you have made so many people laugh today.

Opera:  Turandot except the last two scenes, which Pucini never set and are decidedly inferior.

Favorite Opera - Don't have one favorite - but have a few special ones - DER ROSENKAVALIER, THE MAGIC FLUTE, MADAMA BUTTERFLY, LA BOHEME, DON GIOVANNI, AIDA, HARY JANOS (Kodaly)
Ballets - Again, can't pick just one - ROMEO AND JULIET, SWAN LAKE, SLEEPING BEAUTY, GISELLE, THE NUTCRACKER (just because it's the very first thing I ever saw in the theater - when I was two - what a thrill!)...and I like some of the "modern" stuff, Robbins (FANCY FREE), Tharp (PUSH COMES TO SHOVE), Balanchine, etc...

And PORGY AND BESS is an opera, (although it never comes instantly to mind when the word "opera" is brought up) - so I'll add it to my list.

Too many favorite operas to list.  If I had to say just one, I'd cheat and pick Wagner's Der Ring des Nibilungen, which is really a cycle of four operas.  Four really long operas.

I don't know ballet nearly as well as opera.  Faves include Romeo and Juliet and Swan Lake, the latter whether it is choreographed traditionally or as by Matthew Bourne.

Hmmm...I don't know many operas by name, but I enjoy listening to them.

For ballet's probably Swan Lake is my favorite in that I love the music.

Of course he calls you Bruce Himmel, but I will make sure you name is spelled right in the article! LOL!

Just a suggestion --- and before anyone complains I admit that I am just as guilty as everyone else --- but can we do our stunt casting without Nathan, Rosie and Harvey who have been mentioned in just about every stunt casting we've ever had.  That makes it too easy.

Does anyone know when Danise is leaving for New York?

I wanted to tell her one thing about the Milford Plaza.

**NOTE TO DANISE:  Although 99% of all the rooms at the Milford are very nice, they have one or two rooms on each floor that I am sure must have originally been linen closets.  I think that they usually push them off on the latecomers, but it wouldn't surprise me if they tried to pass one off on some sweet, innocent single woman on her first trip to New York.  If they try to give you a room that requires you to go out in the hall to change your socks -- Be assertive.  Tell them the room is totally unacceptable.  If they tell you there are no other rooms available on that day, tell them you will expect to be moved the first thing the next day.  They gave me one of those rooms one time, they didnít get away with it, nor have they ever tried it on me again.  I am only telling you this, Danise, because you are such a sweet person, and I donít want anyone to take advantage of that sweetness.

That still leaves Lea, Carol and Britney, though.

Indeed, the list of the usual suspects is a long one!

Who is Kenny Miller and Why Is He Talking About Me?

RLP: Have you seen joecaps' latest?  Check out the West Side Story CD thread - he is now saying that WSS in its roadshow engagement in NY had no intermission.  This, of course, is nonsense.  It played twice a day, just as it did in LA and it had an intermission just as it did in all its two a day roadshow runs.

1. Why did they announce group A one after another?  I thought it was the stupidest thing they've ever done.  The whole excitement of it is having them put alternate contestants in each group.

2.  How on earth are people voting?  Either the power voters are going crazy, or people have no clue who they like.

By leaving Group B seated, Ryan/producer/director was trying to create doubts in our minds....meaning if he left them seated then the standing group MUST be the low vote-getters.

But I doubt anyone was fooled...two of the bottom three belonged there.  I'm not sure Jasmine should have been in there since I thought her performance was second best of the Estefan debacle.  But I was certain she was safe, and she was.

As far as voting is concerned, people are apparently voting correctly this week.

Surely someone can find an ad for this one that shows two performances daily.

Hey, does anyone have a URL for a *decent* review of the Universal Monster Legacy set?  I am seeing such divergent opinions (surprise, surprise), I'd like to see something definitive.  BK, maybe you'd like to tackle this one on the DVD site?

I don't know if a review for this specific title is on the site, but I like www.dvdjournal.com for reviews.  They are very thorough and even-handed in their reviews.  It's one of the first places I go when I'm looking for info about DVDs...not necessarily thee first, but one of the first. ;)
