Good morning, all! I don't like hotel beds, and much as I love staying at the Capitol Hill Suite, I was delighted to crawl into my own bed last night. I had weird dreams about the Macbeths: I had rewritten a chart for their band, of which Lady M is the reigning diva, and because she wasn't being featured as much as she liked, they stopped rehearsing the number.
Speaking of divas, DR MichaelShayne, I don't understand the post with Ms Mayes, which seems rather hostile: are you saying she was not wanted for the cast? Has she been cast and I missed something? I don't believe BK has any problems wth her, although I think she might be getting a bit long in the tooth for the role of Joyce and she wouldn't be someone I'd like to work with again.
So, this morning I go to the post office for my mail, then to Toyland to drop off all of my photocopies. The trip was quite successful with one exception: we left at the Landover, MD, annex a carton of original orchestra parts to THE LADY OF THE SLIPPER, but we did cart six cartons back to DC of the original WIZARD OF OZ (nearly complete vocal score), three(!!!) vocal scores to the 1909 Montgomery & Stone hit, THE OLD TOWN, and a carton of Lionel Monckton's THE ARCADIANS, which contained an early vocal score which included in the main text and appendix around 7 numbers no longer with the score as it was finalized.
So, most of the photocopying I wanted/needed to do is completed. I'll go back in October for the LADY OF THE SLIPPER materials: my colleague Tom Murray is in London with Jason Robert Brown's PARADE until December, so the work on LOS will slow down until then.
I may stop by Nola Studios today and catch a bit of the rehearsal and say howdy to BK, BJ, Cason, and anyone else there I know.
