OUT OF THE CLOSET
« on: February 18, 2008, 12:38:16 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, the notes were in and out of the closet, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're currently in the closet.

With the exception of The Supremes and The Jackson 5 I couldn;t tell you who recorded for Motown. Add the names from Tomovoz mentioned  I still can't find a favorite.

Thanks for the Hollywood Collector's Show reports from DR MBARNUM and MR BK.....sounds like sales were great!

Roberta Shore was interviewed for the extras on THE SHAGGY DOG DVD release and she looks great and was very entertaining to hear.  She was also on the commentary track with Tim Considine and Tommy Kirk (I think it was them....).

The laundry is in and I'm having some coffee.  Good morning, all!  I have few plans today: LOS Critical Notes, Act One, and a trip to the local fire dept.  I want to see the original order they were sent from "downtown." Perhaps t will answer a few questions about Miss Jaymie's involvement.

I watched the second part of PRIDE & PREJUDICE, which was quite wonderful. I think this is my fourth or fifth viewing; I usually watch ithe whole over a period of 2 days. To me, besides being  the most faithful adaptation of the novel, which is true as well of Fay Weldon's 1980s BBC adaptation but the A&E/BBC version is better cast than Weldon's, it not only captures best Jane Austen's tone of irony and look at social cruelty - the book's essentially about three miserable marriages leading to two happy ones - but I like the subtext and fleshing out of Darcy's character that writer Andrew Davies provides.

I ran to see the movie version of THE WIZ on the day it opened - and just got more and more depressed as the film wore on and on and on....everyone was just .... well charmless and the original story/movie seemed drained of any imagination it had.

And Lena Horne's mouth never matched her playback in glorious closeup or medium shot and she seemed to be have trouble with her dentures.

As my noble Cherokee ancestors might have said:  Ugh.

Where did you find that photo of DR MBarnum's last trip to Manhattan?

I've only seen this photo of what happened when he stopped in the gym on 83rd Street.

I just purchased tickets to the local cineplex to see a live, HD broadcast of the Met's new production of Britten's Peter Grimes in March.  I've been curious to see how this works, and since I love Britten, I thought this would be a great way to check it out.  It's not the same as sitting in the Met, but it's a heck of a lot cheaper, and the theater is only 4 miles from my house.

Speaking of BIG BROTHER, I am surprised at how behind they are.

There are things that have happened in the house more than 5 days ago. Major events. That they still have not shown.

I know they like to follow a certain format. ANd show certain things on certain days. But i don't like it when they are so far behind!

Given my feelings on John Doyle as a director, I don't predict much for it.

I was lucky to see the Met's old staging by Tyrone Guthrie with John Vickers around 1985.  It was glorious.

I just ran into my super in the basement and we talked about my 40 cartons.  I get the impression Miss Jaymie's been on the phone to the fire dept about him in the past as well.  Please, someone, disconnect her phone!

In fact, I'm wearing a COMPANY sweatshirt right now that was done when I played Harry in a production in the early 1990s.

Good morning!

Warm here. It got to 70 yesterday, and it felt like the temperature didn't drop much overnight because it was very mild this morning when I went out to get the newspaper.

I think THE WIZ has one of the worst books for a Tony-winning Best Musical in the history of the awards. The score has some wonderful music, but that book is really bad. Wisely, even though the show won 7 Tonys, Best Book wasn't one of them. SHENANDOAH rightly won Best Book that year.

The film is just awful in every respect. Ted Ross, who won the Tony playing the Lion, is the only one who stands out among the four principals. Of course, Mabel King as Evilene is lots of fun, too.

I saw this movie opening weekend in a theater whose audience was 98% African-American, and they were rapturous with every song and production number. I thought the roof was coming off the theater with "No Bad News," and Horne's "If You Believe" and Ross' "Home" got STANDING OVATIONS! I just sat still and cringed at how deadly the film was paced.

I wouldn't have known anything about Motown if it weren't for my brother who was a big fan.
He would play one song about fifty times over and over before moving on to another one.

My favorite: "You Can't Hurry Love" by the Supremes.

Favorite singers and groups:

Mary Wells
Four Tops
Temptations
Supremes
Marvin Gaye
Martha and the Vandellas

My very first boy friend and I had a song we called "our song": Mary Wells' "My Guy."
