If you could see her through my eyes...

Tomovoz, you know I loved your pictures.  :D

Danise your snowman is very interesting.   ;D To bad they didnít deliver gloves to wear while playing in the snow.

We met Penny O in town tonight and had a delicious dinner.  Afterwards we went for a lovely walk in the park.

Goodnight.

Gong!
RLP -- I -- never said a thing about an aversion to Capucine.  I said I had an aversion to cappucino after reading BK's notes today.  

Someone else said he had an aversion to Capucine.
 :D

Mea culpa. It was the other "R" - Robin.  As Emily Litella would say, "Never mind."

Nitey night, gang.

Laura - LOL! What a great idea!!!  I would love a HHW dating service :)  I like your general requirements, but I'd have to change the age range...anywhere from 22 to probably 30 for me (I'm 23) but I'm with you on the tallness thing...I just have a harder time with it, since i'm 5'10"...

Good Evening!

DR Paulie... Again, I don't really know anything about Point Park's program, so... But I do know about Catholic University's program, so...

Again, the Musical Theatre program is part of the School of Music.  You graduate with a B.M. (Bachelor of Music) with a major in Musical Theatre.  Since you are part of a music program, you will be taking the standard music courses all four years.  For some, this is not a problem, but for others, having to take four years of music theory can be present quite the challenge.  However, you will graduate being able to read any score put in front of you - and be able to accompany yourself on the piano enough to learn your notes.

CUA's Drama program is a good program, however, the Drama Program is it's own program.  There is not much overlapping between the two schools - unfortunately.  *It's been a few years since I've had direct contact with the program, but I do know some current students, and they still do not have access to all the acting classes that the "acting majors" have access to.

Dance wise it's mainly a matter of which dance classes you take - highly suggest tap and jazz - and which teachers you get.  -Actually, your success - well, happiness in any program at any school is dependent upon your profs.

The voice faculty is comprised mainly of classical voice teachers.  Some do the music theatre thing better than other, imho.  However, there are a few dedicated musical theatre voice teachers with Jane Pesci-Townsend being the most well-known.  -She was Christine Baranski's stand-by for the KenCen Sweeney Todd - and she went on once too!  She's quite the local diva, and she's a wonderful person and performer too.  *I played for her studio for about five years, and always had a good time.

The only real drawback - besides CUA's tuition - is their lack of a nice-sized performance space.  There's a converted chapel that's used for recitals AND some mainstage productions.  It's nice, but it's small.  The other theatre is actually quite large - sometimes too big for it's own good.  And depending upon how much money they have for a set, a show can look quite "humble" on that stage.  -It's the same space that the Drama program uses for their shows, as well as CUA's Summer Opera program.

*However, the recital hall is "wired" for recording.  There's a recording studio/business that resides in the music school.  So, if you want your recital recorded, you just notify them of the time, and they set the timer for the mics to go on and off.  I've had some very nice recital recordings from that space.  -And if you have auditions tapes to take care of, you can get a nice recording done in the studios.

So...

Did you take a nice tour of CUA?  Did you take a nice tour of Point Park?

Do you know any of the faculty at either school?

Do you know any students - current or graduates - at either school?

Can you still follow up with the faculty or students at either school?

Were you able to catch a production and/or recital at either school?

Etc., etc., etc...

I think that's enough for now.  If you have any specific questions about CUA - or living in the DC area, feel free to e-mail me...

Otherwise, Shenandoah University's program has really been turning out the triple threats lately.

CCM has always been tops.

Carnegie-Mellon is good.  LOTS of work.

University of Michigan.  Soooo many working graduates!

University of Florida - Another good triple threat school. -At least from I can gather from whom I've played for - and been impressed by - at auditions.

Finished The Little Prince and Meet Me in St. Louis which I cover in tomorrow's notes.  Trying to decide what to watch next - perhaps Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines.

Bruce:  What was the most delightful experience you have had with any of the CD's you have produced?  For instnace,  The thrill of working with some star?  The thrill of hearing Guy Haines singing "Sorry Grateful"?   The thrill of hearing something sound like you knew it would in your head?  What?

I have had many delightful experiences, some more delightful than others.  I can tell you that hearing Kristen Chenoweth nail Lion Tamer in one take was a wonderful thing.  Hearing Michelle Pawk do anything after giving her notes is something indescribable - her ability to take whatever direction you throw at her and so thoroughly deliver the goods in her own way is breathtaking.  Working with Bacall was delightful.  Working with Loudon was amazingly delightful.  Recording Merrily with Sondheim sitting in back of me was delightful.  Those are a few.

And, oh, Kerry, haven't you been reading Kritzer Time for about three weeks now?

RLP and TD: Vindication is ours.  The copyright date on the Valley of the Dolls LP is 1967.  It's not possible to copyright a 1968 release in 1967.  Oops.  We were right and the clown was wrong.
