Six GUESTS?  What is THAT about?  It's so weird when that happens.  Months of sixty GUESTS day and night and then suddenly six.  Go know.

Peter Filichia sums up Chaplin pretty well. My feelings as well. It's not a terrible show, it's not even "that bad" it's just not very good and there is nothing exciting or wonderful (apart from Rob McLure's performance) in the show. Unless they dig deep into their pockets I don't think the producers will keep this open much longer.

I liked CHAPLIN when it was called LIMELIGHT (about six years ago).

DR Matthew - RE: MISS SAIGON - I remember sitting through a run-thru with just one piano, a reed player (saxophone and flute) and percussion. I loved it. I'm sure a second piano would be quite the nice boost.

As for the Friday Media Check...

Well...

I'll probably be listening to a few albums and watching a couple of TV shows on via my iPad over the next couple of days. I'll keep you posted. ;)

Good morning, all! I wanted to sleep in, but I have a full day today. Supposedly, the AC repairmen at Toyland - who had my cell phone number but never called - will be working on the AC duct today. I have warned the supr that they must be finished and out of there by 2pm, because i have to get home to deal with today's mail and shower and change clothes to catch the final performance of the Irish Rep's NEW GIRL IN TOWN. If they are not, there will be hell to pay, both for the building management as well as the AC folk.

So, I will head down to Toyland shortly to wait for them, and God alone knws when they will show. While I'm there, I've got work on the Appalachian show, the final Ballet Ballad, and playing on the computer.

TOD:
  DVD:  Ben-Hur (BBC version), Bloom (Stephen Rea and Jmes Joyce), several other possibilities
  CD:  Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, White Horse Inn, Guy Haines, Tchaikovsky ballets, Offenbach
  VCR: Any guesses?

Hmmmm . . . the bartender neighbor above me and his lady friend are awfully noisy this morning. There's quite an amount of loud talk and screams of outrage (?) coming through the air vents.

I've had four neighvors in that apartment: the first was a gay college commercial art student who liked big band and music from the 30s, the second was his photographer lesbian sister who used the place during the day as a studio and was out between 8pm and 8am. The next was the awful Canadian with the noisy fold-out bed and the sweet dog who barked too much, and now the tenant is this pleasant young man who's usually pretty quiet.

Good morning, all.

Excellent news, JRand. Hope the rest of the shows this weekend are equally good.

Vibes for the rest of us.

Great column. That's encapsulates why reading Filichia is always fun. He bothers to analyze something.

DR JRand62, good news about last night! I hope the entire run goes well!

Greetings from Toyland! I am listening to John McGlinn's BROADWAY SHOWSTOPPERS recording, which I haven't played in years. Mr Gaines' uncontrollable vibrato in "Dancing in the Dark" is driving me mad ("Dancing in the d-a-a-a-a-a-a-rk") He's so much better on the wonderful SITTING PRETTY recording. I'll bet that when he showed up in London with that vibrato, McGlinn knew he was screwed.
