I've finished the questions for today's events and printed out everything I need.  I'm sure David Lee will be talkative - if he isn't, my questions probably won't take more than thirty minutes - if he is talkative, that will turn into an hour or ninety minutes, and the rest is audience Q&A.

David Lee directed the production of Do I Hear A Waltz that you recorded?

I am now listening to a live recording of the original Broadway production of Follies (including dialogue). I think Follies is my favorite Sondheim score including the all the cut songs.

The only song I don't have is The World's Full Of Boys/The World's Full Of Girls

If it's the same soundboard one I have, you might notice there are actually some interpolations from the OBC recording.  The guy who gave it to me years ago had the history as to why that had happened, but I can't for the life of me recall right now.  I want to say it's at least "Waiting for the Girls Upstairs," but it might be something else and/or more.

Just a little benzedrine mixed in with his orange juice should take care of that quite nicely.

I've printed out everything, I've shaved, and I'll now shower and then be on my way to LACC, after which I shall return.

You'll either thank me for this or hate me - but Warners has taken a leaf from Arkiv Music and they're about to release a whole slew of movies via their new Warners Archive line - only available on the Internet - some incredible titles that I think we can now assume won't ever see the light of a proper release - I'm sure they're spending nothing on remastering them properly, but I think our dear readers will definitely want to get some of these.

I'll thank you. At last the Laurence Olivier/Peter Brook version of THE BEGGAR'S OPERA gets a US release! It was never available here on VHS either. I suspect it's the same as the Region-2 DVD, but I could be wrong.

George, I have been catching up on the posts while I was in Vegas (BK's notes I read the evening I returned) and I read that you attended a matinee of FOOTLOOSE last Sunday, and that you knew several people in the show.

How was the show?  Who did you know?  I heard that they had a very bad epidemic of that horrible flu that went thru the entire cast and crew during Hell Week.

Here is revised Nudie art, taking into account a few comments from here.  We're going to try one other version, but that can't happen until I get him something to work with, which will be on Sunday.





Much better!

Good morning!

Quite cool this morning but an otherwise beautiful day here. Beautiful light blue sky and lots of sunshine. It is breezy, though, and one needs a jacket to stay outside for long.


Matt, Warners will be out there shortly to work on that blue sky!

TOD:

Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett
Aria da Capo by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Count me as another who had to sit through "Waiting for Godot." :P

It was a great production with very good actors, but the show...not my cuppa.

I didn't know anything about an epidemic and couldn't tell.  They put on a good show.  I knew Chris Serface (of course) and Matt Posner (the lead).  Matt and I were in Side Show and Reefer Madness! The Musical together.

And now, I'm off to work.  After that, I'm stopping at my sister's for a short bit.  Our parents are coming over and my sister is having a fondue dinner, but I can't stay for very long.  I'm working concessions for Lauren Weedman in BUST and need to be there before 6:00 pm.  It sounds like it'll be great:

Bust is Lauren Weedman’s semi-autobiographical work built around her experiences working as a volunteer advocate in a Southern California prison for women. With one foot in Hollywood and the other in jail, the former Daily Show with Jon Stewart correspondent careens wildly between the two worlds, taking us on a hilarious, poignant, and completely unforgettable ride. The LA Weekly called her work "breathtaking... a female Robin Williams".

;D

Have a good day, all!

Saturday greetings. It's colder in New York than in Fort Atkinson.

I'm about to begin my morning ablutions and then I will be out and about.

I've had my oatmeal and coffee and washed the bowl and the mug and now it's time to wash myself.

Do you need a hand to scratch your back??? :o

Oh! Too late!! ;)

Dionne Warwick just called, she is ill and will not be able to read the notes today.

Sounds like lyrics to a Cole Porter song, no? ;)

I highly recommend TOAST OF NEW YORK to anyone who wonders why JR and I spend so much time discussing FF.  It's one of her better pictures, certainly the most expensive she ever made, with wonderful supporting performances by Cary Grant, Edward Arnold, Jack Oakie and Donald Meek.  She doesn't sing particularly well (in fact, she's pretty bad), but her performance is spot on, with several fantastic scenes.  For you trivia lovers, that's Albert Brooks' mother Thelma Leeds playing Fleurique.

That's a little disturbing about the incorrect facts - and I've learned my lesson - I did no fact-checking because Walter was having a very knowledgeable theater writer proofing every comma, every period, every line - I guess he didn't proof the CONTENT.  So, from now on, either I write the liners as I do for the soundtracks, and as I'm doing for Illya, or I fact check myself, which is a pain but I'll do it. 

Oh well, "errare humanum est" ... and the mistakes are signed by Mr Willison, Walter for the ladies...

And that was "food for the thought" for DR MattH.

Great story/profile on John Cullum this morning on NPR. -He's currently in two shows in NYC right now. One On-Broadway and one Off-Broadway. At the same time!!!

Good morning everyone,

topic of the day:   WAITING FOR GADOT   (I forgot I saw this at the Music Center until I saw DAW's post), thank you for reminding me how much I loved it.

Here, it's GODOT. (Still waiting for him, by the way!)

Might be "gordo" in the Spanish adaptation!.... ;)
