Do we get at least a mini review tonight Jay? Some of us have to enjoy our theatrical experiences vicariously.

Fully Committed was great fun and Mr. Jason Graae was simply marvelous in it.  

Mr. Graae's mom was in from Tulsa ("a slut," spelled backwards) to see the play, and I had the chance to chat with her for a bit afterwards.  With only a little prompting from Mr. Graae, I told her how much I enjoyed "her" CD and she got a kick out of that.  (For those who do not have it, you simply must run out and buy Mr. Graae's An Evening of Self Indulgence: Live at the Cinegrill--produced by our own BK--on which Mr. Graae's mom makes a cameo singing appearance.)

Miss Marcia Seligson, who runs Reprise!, was seated immediately in front of me this evening.  Mr. George Ball was in the audience, too, though I did not see his lovely wife, Miss Amanda McBroom.

Maybe that's too mini?

Thanks Jay. I have no idea how you remember everyone and to whom they are married. Most recording stars, film stars and stage stars could be sitting next to me (except Mr Spacey) and I would have no idea who they were!

I'm showing my age. My first thought was running Reprise Records! I remember when the label was launched.  It's Ok I am now back in the present.

Back from a most luscious dinner about which more in tomorrow's notes.  We aren't really going to achieve a new low, are we?  I can't believe that we could allow this to happen.  I suppose I could make fourteen posts in a row but I don't think that's a way to do things, so if we do, we do, and that's that.

Sorry.  The full name, which contains an entirely unnecessary exclamation point and is too long by half, is Reprise! Broadway's Best.  The outfit that did Babes in Arms and Kismet earlier this season and will be doing Company in May.

There's nearly an hour BK! Who knows? The West coasters may just be coming home from Saturday night festivities. Maybe DRs Ann & Jed will be reporting on their thoroughly modern evening.

Maybe we'll just squeak by again, like last Saturday.  Jenny, speak to me of things.

Silly me.  I've already changed my clocks, so I was looking for tomorrow's notes.  But tomorrow (oh, an Annie reference), which will be a 23-hour day, doesn't really come for another forty-five minutes.

As much as I enjoy "Company" I wish it could have a rest for a few years. I don't know about in the US of A but it seems to be done so often here. I am hoping that the next year will see "Saturday Night" get a performance here - it will probably happen when I am out of the country  experiencing the wonders of "The Woman In White". I just hope the new ALW has more to offer than "The Beautiful Game".

Our clocks were changed last week - the end of daylight savings. Do I have to make yet another adjustment in comparitive times!  I've have enough trouble knowing that you are still in yesterday.

Unless they're canoodling.  But even if they are canoodling, they'll both deny, deny, deny (that is three denys) that they were.

Yep.  You and Dear Reader Laura get to watch the rest of "spring forward" tonight.

I wonder where RLP is this evening. Jose often drops in at this time. I am hopeful that this will not be my third post in a row! Rally round the flag boys.

Time for the ritual feeding of Magnus and Fosca. I know my priorities. Good night Sundried Readers.

Great review, Jenny.  And don't worry about spoilers.  We don't give a whit about spoilers around here.

By coincidence, der Brucer was playing the LP for STAR today.  I found the album cover amazingly precient, with Julie's eye covered with a star, fortelling the make-up used by the rock band KISS!  (Only they did it in black and white, she did it in orange and pink!)

Digesting luscious dinner of which more will be heard tomorrow, I gather. So here's a joke, compliments of DD Rachel.

Guy pulls into a gas station with six penguins sitting in his car. Attendant says, "Sorry if I'm being nosy, but what's with the penguins?"
The guy replies, "When I went to get my car this morning, there they were. I don't know what to do with them."
Attendant says, "Easy. Take them to the zoo."
Guy thanks him for the great idea and drives off.

A few days later he pulls into the same gas station. Penguins are still in the car.
Attendant says, "I thought you took them to the zoo!"
"I did," answers the guy. "They loved it! Today I'm taking them to the circus." ;D
