Thanks for the link DRFRANCOIS....I didn't see this special last year, but it sounds interesting.

Shorter by 30-plus minutes, IIRC.

Can you share anything about which songs from the SF run were cut and how many new songs have been integrated into the score?

Hmmm...

Well, by the time I had seen the show during it's last week in San Francisco, the show was already down to a surprisingly brisk two hours and forty-five minutes.

Hmmm...

As for what's been cut, changed, enhanced, added... Well... I guess since some of that info has been "shared" in some of the video blogs that Hugh Panaro has been doing for Broadway.com...

I'm not exactly sure what numbers have been cut, but there are currently four new numbers in the show.  Most everything else has been re-routined, re-structured, edited, or expanded.

The biggest changes have to do with the book.  Lots o' changes.  All for the better.

And speaking of Broadway.com...

The latest Lestat entry features the fabulous Carolee Carmello.  She gives a whirlwind tour of the backstage area of The Palace as well as of her dressing room.  And she also reveals some interesting insights about her "process".

*And I may end up getting some camera time when they come to film part of the orchestra rehearsal tomorrow.  Guess I should really try to get a good night's sleep tonight - I can't afford to have dark circles under my eyes tomorrow.  -Especially with that florescent lighting in the studio.

DR Vismom, thanks!!

I see it was nto far from Broadway but definitely north of the area once known as Hell's Ktichen.

Actually 122 West 20th street would be about 20-30 blocks south   of Hell's Kitchen.  Hell's Kitchen is generally thought of the 40's and 50's, west of 8th Avenue.

Well, was I surprised last night when, while flipping through my collection of Ben Bagley cd's, I discovered that... Miss Susan Stroman, of The Producers fame, was once a singer!

SEE!

Rodgers & Hart Revisited, vol. 5 with Ann Hampton Callaway, Mary Cleere Haran, Dorothy Loudon, Arthur Siegel, Sandy Stewart, and Susan Stroman.

Yes, I have! Thanks for noticing. Had a nice lunch at Taco Bell with friends talking about AMERICAN IDOL and THE SHIELD, a pair of strange bedfellows to be sure!

Why does everyone get to go to Taco Bell but me!?

Clearly if I had read on, I would have seen that Ben provided a much more in depth explanation.

It was lovely to come home from my super long day at work and find that Rodzinski had prepared pan fried salmon! I quickly heated up some mashed potatoes and greenbeans and we had a lovely dinner.

I think it was... playful and somewhat got a little "out of control" and still remains a "joke"! At least, that's what I hope it was! ;)

And now that that lovely dinner has had time to settle, I must exercise!  I too am trying to make changes in my diet and exercise, and good lord is it ever hard work.

I try telling myself that I really want to work on becoming healthier, but who am I kidding- I just want all of my pants to fit again!!

I went to Taco Del Mar for lunch today.  They have punch cards.  For every jumbo or super burrito that you buy, you can get your card punched (better than your face punched ;)) and when you have 10 punches, you get a free burrito...and Mondays are double-punch Monday, so you only need to buy five!  Anyway, I had a completely punched card, so today I got my free burrito!  It's a whole meal in itself. :)

Well, I'll at least be wearing something warm.  We're rehearsing on the top floor of  building that is right off the West Side Highway - right by the water.  Lots of wind.  Lots of "cooling".  And every time they adjusted the thermostat in the room, the A/C would kick in.  Of course, one of the vents was right above me... well, dead center on my right hand.  It's very hard to play runs with chilled fingers.

Point taken.  

And do you accept my apology?  :-\

Yes. And what I wrote to DR Vixmom was not meant to say anything against you.  She is just very kind and I did not feel right about her feeling bad (thinking she said something that made me upset).

And btw, re: American Idol. Ace was in the bottom of the men? I don't remember that!

I've been slaving over a lyric - very difficult and I'm still only through the first verse and half the second verse.  So, here's a little brainstorming session - The song is called The World of Tomorrow, sung by someone in the 1950s positing how the future will be - i.e. cars that fly, no more smog, no more flu, crime, war, etc.  What other things would we have thought would be gone by now but are still with us?

What, if anything, did he use for seasoning on the salmon?

I'm delighted!

As for Ace, I read it on the board at IdolonFox that Ace had been one of the lowest vote-getters in the final selection for the men.  I took it at face value, because the person writing seemed to know a lot about how everyone had fared each week leading up to the top 12.

The bottom line, though, is that he did not belong in that bottom three last night.
