Well, you've read the notes, you know all the props that are being sent to Apple, and now it is time for you to post until the prop cows come home.

Topic of the Day...there are a lot of flop musical scores that I like.  And of course, some people may define "flop" differently.  I'll have to think about this and look through my CDs, because sadly, if it doesn't have a recording, I probably don't really know it...except for Angry Housewives.  I was involved in a local community production of it and saw almost every performance of the run.  Loved it!! ;D

Mack and Mabel is certainly up there.  

And I don't think that I can come up with ONE that is my "all-time favorite," but I'm sure that I can come up with a bunch that are much more favored than others. :)

And (sort of) speaking of Jerry Herman, does anyone know (has anyone heard) if the new DVD release of "Jerry Herman's Broadway at the Hollywood Bowl" is remastered with better sound or video quality or is it just a re-release of the original DVD with different packaging?

I'd doubt if it's anything but a third release of the DVD that we put out at Varese Sarabande.

I made a CD of the soundtrack and I must say that the sound is wonderful!  Too bad they couldn't release it officially.  It's great! ;D

I think Image released it, too, but maybe I'm wrong.

The Image website says that the new DVD is 113 minutes and the original Varese DVD says 116 minutes!  I wonder if they actually cut something out or if Image isn't counting the end credits.

I will read the posts from yesterday when I get home from work this evening.  Whew!

Favorite song from a flop musical...hmmmm....first I will say "Sad Was the Day" from DONNYBROOK!  But I am sure there are others.  The title song from THE MAN WITH A LOAD OF MISCHIEF is fun...but that was Off Broadway, I think.

My Stage Manager will not return until Monday....he was AWOL again last night, when we had a dozen people or so in to see the show.

The cast was very good about setting things themselves.  The one BIG transition involves picking up a lot of guns and props left after an attempted murder.  I planned to do that one.

As I walked out in the blackout, Idiot Actor whispers to me....the clip from the .22 fell out and is beside the couch....it's black....pick it up.

Of course I couldn't see it.  The final scene follows and after the bows, we were all looking for the clip.  After fifteen minutes Idiot Actor Number Two who was sitting in the audience talking to his wife said:  "What are you looking for?"  "Clip for the .22"  "Oh I picked it up, it's in my pocket."

Then we had notes....at the end, I asked if there were any questions.  Idiot Actor Number One said:  I thought the rugs were going to be taped down, the corner of one was up in one scene, I noticed.  Someone could have tripped.

I answered:  When we have time.  And with 8 actors onstage, I am surprised ONE of you didn't fix the corner of the rug anyway.

Sometimes I an not the MOST gracious director....especially to IA's.

Second three-dog night here at our place.  Molly, Toby and Dylan are getting along quite well, although I think Molly just might be a little confused about where her human is.

Good morning, all!  I've but put puppies outside to do their thing, I'm having coffee, and soon I will hie myself to Brookville, IN to visit my father and family.  I wil drive back later in the afternoon.

DR George, I may be wrong, but I beleve ANGRY HOUSEWIVES is an Off-Broadway show.  

TOD:
  song:  "I Wish It So" from JUNO
  score:  Too many:
                 JUNO
                 GOLDILOCKS
                 MACK AND MABEL
                 OH, BROTHER!
                 DRAT! THE CAT
                 FIREBRAND OF FLORENCE

I would love to hear the remainder of the CARNIVAL IN FLANDERS score; if it's as good as the big song . . .

Yes, DR JRand55, it was.  And a lovely show it is.

In terms of flop Broadway musicals, BRING BACK BIRDIE is a favorite, with my favorite songs being "When Will Grownups Grow Up" and "Well, I'm Not."

I also like "You Gotta Have Dancing" from the Strouse-Adams A BROADWAY MUSICAL, and find that song running through my head a bit, although I don't love that entire score.

Favorite score to a flop film musical is LOST HORIZON.  Terrible film, but some nice songs away from the film, especially the fun duet between the two ladies ("Different people look at life from different points of view; if you really want the things I have, just help yourself, I give them all to you.")

On the list of the things that I will not miss is peace and quiet.

I would like to try it.

On the list of the things that I will not miss is open spaces.

Why can't we change places?

(Sally)
Sounds like a great vacation.

DR FJL - Hermes Pan's staging of that (well all) of the numbers in that movie killed it for me.  It is ridiculous....of course he doesn't have dancers to begin with....but come on, now!

I am now ready to begin my trek to the wllds of Indiana.  I wish I had more time to explore the wilderness and see such creatures as the awesome  JRand55 in its native habitat.  Perhaps I can on my next trip to the faraway province of Ohio.

My angry brother came over last night with profuse apologies, which were touching and quite unnecessary.  I can't deny they were comforting and flattering to my ego, but I thought we were okay on Thursday and his scene on Wednesday was obviously stil bothering him.  I told him I loved him, assured him we were fine, and that he needed to watch his alcohol:  my cheap ugly scenes were the reason I now only drink in moderation.  As you all know from HHW, I'm perfectly capable of them without a drop.

DR Ginny and I just spoke by telephone:  her DH Richard is off this morning to Wisonsin, and tomorrow we will have a playdate.

I will retunr later today with an account of today's activities.

Saturday morning greetings!  Yes, DH Richard has just embarked on his 2-day drive to Wisconsin for a week's residency at Nashotah House.  He's taking 3-month distance learning class in Old Testament and this week is the on-campus component.

I am enjoying my first real weekend off since Memorial Day - my only definite plans are the movie date with DR Elmore tomorrow and something (yet to be determined) with another friend on Monday.  Meanwhile, let the puttering begin!

Good morning!

Day 2 of spring in July. It was heaven sleeping in such cool, unhumid conditions, and while today promises to get warmer than yesterday, this evening is supposed to go back down in the 60s.

I have to pinch myself to realize I'm not dreaming this.

Favorite song from a flop musical is "Once Upon a Time" from ALL AMERICAN.

I think KEAN is probably my favorite flop score though I do love JUNO and SUBWAYS ARE FOR SLEEPING and MACK & MABEL and WHOOP-UP.

I don't know that I'll get far enough to actually submit an answer. But I am going to try to solve the trivia question this time.  I've never done it because as much as I love theatre and film, I'm not that into remembering the trivia, but it's time I dug in and tried the contest
