Well, you've read the notes, the notes knew what they needed, and now it is time for you to post until the needy cows come home.

Good morning, all!I planned to sleep until 7am, but I was wide awake at 5:50 and out of bed by 6:10.I had a ferocious dream that John McGlinn had reyurned and was creating hell about my perversion of his work, on BABES IN TOYLAND and EILEEN, and my last memory of this dream is that we were in an office where I told him his research was inept and incomplete and much of his scholarship was fraud. Well, it's true!

So, this morning I will pay a few bills, run over to the bank for some cash, and go to the first meeting of this Appalachian holiday piece. Actors are coming and going all week for rehearsals and auditions, so we're hoping to get the bulk of the vocal parts taught today and tomorrow. The cast is as follows:
  Erica Aubrey
  Mimi Bessette
  Jarrod Emick
  Julie Foldesi
  Michael Hicks
  Ben Hope
  Ian Lowe
  David Lutken
  Deb Lyons
  Steve McIntyre
  Jennafer Newberry
  Leenya Rideout

I am very excited about this!

DRs cillaliz and Ben, I'm happy your families are okay. I'm sure they thought, while all hell was breaking loose, that the Rapture was just postponed a day.

I watched three episodes of THE PILLARS OF FIRE last night: I'm enjoying it and all the politics involved. Two of the major villains, an incestuous mother and son, are really creepy. What is on her face? A lesion? A tattoo? Both seem applicable. The crosscutting between plots is too aggressive and too often; it's like watching 3 hours of MTV videos.

The comment of DR JohnG that Ian McShane is a good villain is quite true. I always felt the same way about Robert Foxworth; whenever he guested on a LAW & ORDER episode, I knew he was behind the crime after his first appearance.

Wow! CNN quotes a person who estimates that 75% of Joplin is gone. And 89 are dead.  That's enormous, much larger than I ever would have guessed.

The bills are paid, and I will post them on my way to the bank. I think I'll start proofreading "Thine alone." The EILEEN orchestra scores are beginning to arrive hot and heavy and I won't get too far with them until the end of the week when this workshop is over.

And we are standing in reverse alternating chronological order - so there was a method to my madness.

DR ELMORE did you get me any money while you were at the bank?

Back from D.C. and can't figure out why the hotel's system would not let me sign in to HHW yesterday.

Immersing myself in a mostly-FOLLIES weekend again was a wonderful wallow.  i think Mr. Brantley's review (where e loved Act II, didn't like Act 1) could be a result of the oddest point to settle on for 15 minutes of rumination over the intermission, after the expert rendition of TOO MANY MORNINGS - but stopping there for a pause makes the show feel like it's about so much less than it really is.   Maybe get rid of the intermission for a couple of perfs on a Tueday evening and Wednesday and see how it works?   Elmore, would anyone listen to you if you made a suggestion like that?

A TIME TO KILL at the Arena is such an expert depiction of reality of vigilante justice, and by presenting it with great humor and stark realism, seems to endorse eye-for-an-eye and capital punishment by presenting reality without (as far as I can see)  comment.  Almost Brechtian for me in its alienation.  I prefer getting riled up at the theater to being bored, and I was NOT bored to say the least.  Bravo to Rupert Holmes and the Arena Stage and everyone for daring to present challenging work, and I did not join the standing ovation because I was a little in shock.

The new Arena Stage building is stunning.

Only thing I didn't get about the design:  At one point, to get to the street level theater where A TIME TO KILL is playing, and then get back out, we had to go up a flight of stairs only to go down s flight of stairs to get to the level we were on before.    This feels like a design flaw, but no one there seemed to find it odd.  :)

Thanks to DR FJL for the FOLLIES report....and to DR JOSE for the review links last night.

Those pictures, if they are from the show - are most excellent!

LOL, DR John G.  Moore and Redford were the first two who popped into me head as soon as I read the TOD.

Therefore, ditto, say I.

DR JRand60, I asked for money, specifically mentioning your name.  After the sniggering became loud guffaws, they politely said no.
