From everything I've heard, I would absolutely loathe this incarnation of Company.  You can do an interesting and/or unique concept once and get away with it.  After that, you're a one trick pony and it will be diminishing returns from then on.

"Diminishing Returns" - wouldn't that have been a lovely Cole Porter tune for Fred and Ginger.  I don't think there has EVER been a song with that title.....I claim it!!!

Ah, the Fabulous Fox Theater in Atlanta. I saw Richard Harris in CAMELOT there. I sat in the "balcony" and that was the night I finally realized that I needed glasses.

I was remiss not to answer MBarnum's question yesterday. And the answer is, LAS VEGAS HILLBILLIES, wherein one can enjoy the skills of both Van Doren and Mansfield.

Of course, Mansfield in THE FAT SPY is also hard to beat.

Okay, BK, I'll cut him some slack on the B'day, simply because you knew it was a conflict before he was cast and committed.

Company was a disappointment. I'll go into detail later but suffice it to say I think the stripped down Actor as Musician phase of the Broadway musical may be coming to an end after Company opens.
Oh, God, I hope so!

I am wearing the shirt I had on last night.  But soon I will put on a clean sweater.


Well that'll make everything hunky dunky!  Will the sweater go over the shirt or replace it?

I wonder....if these stripped down musical presentations go away, does that mean folks here think full revivals will be done?

Or are you saying you'd rather these shows get no representation at all if the stripped down version is the only thing affordable?

The rain gods have prevailed.  Oakland has been, intermittently, awash.

Tomorrow, the weather prognosticators say that Oakland will not only be awash but agurgling.  Must be SOME storm.

I thought my post office in New York was terrible, but my hometown one this morning beat it by a mile.   I got there at 9, there were two people ahead of me, but the only postal worker receiving mail chatted liesurely to each of them as the line grew.  About 9:10, a gentleman came out and took another window and I waas his first customer.  I bought a book of stamps, a carton to send things back to New York, and an international money order, only I had to go see the lady who was taking her time.  The line behind me continued to grow.

The lady I needed to see was helping an older woman who would not shut up about running over her mail box (!!!???) so I had to wait another five minutes while that issue was settled.  I asked for an international money order for $45.50, only to learn she had to go get one.  It came back to me in the amount of $43.50, so she had to redo, first heading into the back to look for another.  I finally got out after thirty minutes at two windows.  Oy!

So, I notice that every day we have a new member, maybe 20-25 in the past week.  Who are these folk?  Are they going to join us or remain legitimate lurkers?

I'm crabby; these lousy Christmas arrangements are driving me mad.

Listening to Baroque music.

If it's Baroque, fix it!

I know that DR Charles Pogue liked Doyle's SWEENEY TODD in London, but I loathed it; it should have been in an NYU basement "experimental" theatre production for $20, not $100 on Broadway.  Watching actors lumber around, instrument in hand, trying to act, trying to play, did nothing to me in telling the story, showing character relationships, or revealing anything more than gimmickry.  I was impressed at how well they memorized and played the score, how well they sang and navigated too tiny a space on a Broadway stage as they lugged around a cello, a trumpet, an accordion, or a tuba, for all of Patti Lupone's 10-20 notes she played.

I hope this new COMPANY, of the same ilk and director, dies a grisly death, the band goes back in the pit, and actors relate to each other again.

Ben - regarding calling a balcony a balcony: IIRC, the theaters with three levels used to call the upper levels Balcony and 2nd Balcony.  But that was long ago, and I think that once "they" decided to charge as much for most of the rear mezzanine as they do for the orchestra, the parlance switched to the nicer-sounding word "mezzanine."  The word sounds more welcoming than the harsh-sounding "balcony."  But you're right, it IS what used to be called the balcony, no matter how you look at it - it's just marketing.

The Washington Center for the Performing Arts, where I've ushered for many years (where I'm working concessions tonight), has four levels:  (from the bottom) orchestra, loge, mezzanine and balcony.  I've always assumed that they have different names to make it easier for the patrons to find (and remember) where they need to go.  Labels such as "first balcony," "second balcony" and "third balcony" aren't as distinctive as totally different names.  Just my 2.
