Oh, and I'm waiting for the Suskin book to come out for the Kindle.  Probably a year if it takes 1 to 3 months to ship normally.

Guess I'll have to pick up the Suskin book - I wasn't that thrilled with his last effort, Second Act Trouble, but this one sounds like it's better.

I have mentioned it before, but the craziest Shakespeare production I have ever seen was a production of HAMLET by the Seattle Rep in the early 70's.  The title character was played by an young Christopher Walkin in a gold lame jumpsuit.  In my memory, Hamlet made his first entrance of a real motorcycle; although a fellow actor who claimed to have worked on the show denies that.  The production was most famous for the scene with a totally nude Ophelia, who basically sleep-walked her way along the top of the scaffolding that made up the set.  Once word of the nudity got out, the theater was packed to the rafters at every single performance.

There is a story that I have heard on a number of occasions over the years (but cannot verify) that the actress playing Ophelia began rubbing down her body before the nude scene with baby oil.  Since she liked the glistening effect so much, she began using more and more of the oil at each performance.  One night, she supposedly used so much oil that she slipped and fell down the stage left staircase, and landed spread-eagle at the front of the stage.

I pre-ordered from Amazon last June, and it arrived this past Friday upon release.

[The release was pushed back several times.]

Both.  But his drugs were prescribed. For the most part.

*I still remember him playing with Daniel Heifetz on a program that included one of the Mozart violin sonatas. Clear, musical, beautiful - and with NO DAMPER PEDAL!   -Wow!... And I'm now remembering the sadness I felt when I heard of his passing back in 1999...

Well, I think I'm going to head back into downtown Charleston for a bit.  I've finished up my work here at the office, and since the sun is back out, and since it's also St. Patrick's Day - and, yes, I'm wearing green - I might as well not stay in the office all afternoon.

Good morning.  I am alone in my house for the first time since Toby was brought home.  DH Jed took him to daycare as usual, but I stayed home from work so I can go get a minor procedure done at the doctor's this afternoon.  How strange to be in a quiet house.

Office Depot arrived around 12:30 and I headed home.  I want to jump back into the Suskin book but i've got band parts to prepare. I liked Suskin's SCOND ACT TROUBLE. It was a lot of reprints I had either read thirty years ago or had never seen and I thought it was a lot of fun.

re: natasha richardson

It is strange how the reports vary. But the one cillaliz posted and the one i posted before it said the same thing.

I think i would tend to be more trusting of those people who actually went to the Montreal hospital to check on her condition.

Or, perhaps, Cinderella in Into the Woods?

Wasn't there a rock musical version of OTHELLO?

I have a vague memory of seeing it at the Music Center here in Los Angeles bck in the late 1960s or early 1970s.  I think that Jerry Lee Lewis played Iago.  Don't recall who played the other parts.

I think we left during intermission.

MTV UK is reporting that Natasha Richardson has died, but I haven't seen this confirmed by any other source, and it could be completely false.

DR JoseSPiano is probably getting a live report from some Twitterer at the hospital.
