What a busy day so far.  Got another ninety minutes of sleep, printed orders, had a meeting with the camera people, had a visit with Sharon McNight and gave her her material, had a quick sandwich and sweet potato fries, picked up two small packages, printed out orders, and then spent an hour doing a detailed schedule for the shoots on Thursday and Friday.  And now Juliana should be here in ten minutes and I can only do ninety minutes with her, then get ready for tonight, then have a meeting with the production assistant for Friday's shoot.  Then it's Titanic, which I've just heard is THREE HOURS LONG.  Now I don't even want to go.

You are lucky.  The first time I saw TITANIC in previews, it was over four hours long.

Yeston's TITANIC really grew on me and I berate myself for missing it on Broadway.  I did see one poor quality bootleg and thought, unlike many, that the production was stunning.

But the score is the big draw for me, and it now occurs to me to ask:  Did anyone here go to that concert performance on the Upper West Side a couple of years back?  I was there, and oh my goodness was that ever an interesting evening........     8)

So I hope BK hears it with a full-sized well-rehearsed orchestra, in good acoustics, and of course with with a good cast!  Looking forward to the notes.


You are correct, Chas, the score is wonderful.

I would not have minded a rough read-through at all, but it's great to hear it went so well regardless.

Per the comment about the key change -- was this accompanied by the MD, no orchestra or anything?

Piano only, there is no orchestra. The musicians are the cast.

Keith thinks it is my sciatica, if so I have had it much worse & this feels somewhat different as it isn't shooting down my leg.  Many of the symptoms are the same.  I guess it could be a mild attack.

The first - and last - time I saw Maury Yeston's TITANIC I detested it. Still do. There's good stuff in the score and some of the cast, but i think the show's book and original production are awful.

I love this picture of Madeleine Albright playing the drums. She looks like she's having more fun on stage than at a diplomat gathering.

That's a great picture! :D

Does anyone have a new show they plan to watch?

There are some that I want to watch...but I can't think of any of the titles, right now.

My two top pics are LAST RESORT & ARROW.  We'll watch ELEMENTARY because it is Sherlock Holmes.  We like Dennis Quaid so we will probably check out VEGAS, plus it takes place in the 60's.

I am not sure what i will watch. I have so far wanted to avoid current television because of the political ads. The 529 ads up ere are really getting nasty.

We watched the first episode of THE NEW NORMAL after my Bernese Mountain Dog friend's on FB said to watch it.  There is an adult Berner & a puppy making the show for us.  The second episode had a brief visit by the dogs and the 3rd episode only had a photograph of the older dog.  Without the dogs we are not sure we will continue to watch this.

No, thank God.

Funny, I thought the concept of people playing instruments for Company worked much better than in Sweeney Todd  I'm always in awe at the fact that these people can act, play an instrument, sing, dance, etc.  While we love to criticize the production/concept, we can't say anything negative about the performances, which are stellar.

I love the score for Titanic, hated the National Tour.  I'm hoping to do the show some year...

There isn't really anything that interests me too much. I might give a couple of shows a try.

I recently got a new channel called ABC Spark. I think it is similar to ABC Family in the US. So I've been catching up on the show BUNHEADS. I have 1 1/2 more episodes to go.

I wonder if I saved them...or at least some of them.  I can check when I get home after visiting with my parents tonight.
