Follies has never been optioned for film as far as I know.  It has been talked about, certainly, but I don't think the rights have ever actually been purchased.

I don't need to whine--or wine for that matter. I just wanted to be a part of this historic Saturday posting.
Congratulations BK and all.Keep the Whining running!!

Yesterday's topic I know but last night I watched "Broadway's Lost Treasures". I want more. today I listened to the soundtrack of "Spirited Away" Thank you again François. I am not really a "soundtrack/film score" person but I really enjoy it. At home today we were discussing the wonderful "Baghdad Cafe". "Calling You" is on the new Babs CD. Are there any other fans of the movie out there. It was the only movie I have seen where I liked Jack Palance.

Fine whine is worth waiting for Mr Brockman Snr. Sorry td ,I was having my photo taken by a friendly bear. Yet another attempt to post my photo at HHW. I will still probably prefer Thomas The Tank Engine.

Oh, yes, Tom!  I adore "Baghdad Cafe"!

I first saw it on video about 15 years ago and went out immediately and bought the CD soundtrack.

I've been a CCH Pounder fan since then, too!!!

The song is hauntingly beautiful.

Dear Bruce:  I read with interest your comments about "sinus expulsions" and "phlegm."

I'm going to recommend something to you:  Zicam for congestion relief.  This totally opens you up.  It's helped me get the sleep I need without mouth breathing for hours at a time.  The only drawback is that you must not use it for an extended period as it will cease to be effective and could have adverse affects if used too often.

Of course, if you're just using tissues in this mass mucous evacuation process, you may not need such help.

I hope you get well really soon.

Anybody know when JRand is supposed to get back from his day with Dame Edna????

I'm guessing he's made a day of it, with performance and dinner, etc.

But I can't wait to hear his report on the show!!!!!

Hi everyone!

First things first:

[move=left,scroll,6,transparent,100%]Fantastic vibes to Ben, his brother, and all of the family![/move]

Next:
I enjoyed the article about Mary, merry, and marry. I pronounce them all differently, as does my mom, and we live in VA. I asked my friend to pronounce the words as I spelled them to her when we were on the phone, and they all sounded the same. Ah well, I guess my mom and I are considered weird by most Virginians.  :D I remember when I was in eighth grade, this guy used to tease me and call me Ahn because I apparently pronounced my middle name (Ann) like that. Ah well. My mom's family is from Philly, and I have a slight accent, especially after I get home from a visit with them. I suppose that could affect the Mary/merry/marry stuff, too.

Finally, I saw Bounce last night. It was my friend Mike's first show ever, and he enjoyed it a lot. The only problem he had was that during intermission, he heard quite a few people, one woman in particular, criticizing the show, and he wondered why people couldn't just enjoy the performers and their talents. In a way, I agree. Anyway, I thought the show was pretty good. I'm not too familiar with Sondheim (basically all I know is Into the Woods, along with Gypsy and WSS), so I can't exactly say if the songs sound recycled or not. I did hear snippets of ITW, though.
While the show was entertaining, it does need work. First of all, I think the relationship between the brothers and their mother needs to be fleshed out. It brought visions of Gypsy, but I wanted to understand the reason why it was like that. Basically, I think a better backstory would be nice. Then, Act I felt rushed in some areas as the audience was transported throughout the world. Some of Act I just needs to be rewritten. Certain jokes were overused, which was a bit frustrating. Also, Wilson's character needs work. I didn't sympathize with him at all, and I therefore didn't care what happened to him.
Personally, I really enjoyed Richard Kind, Gavin Creel, Michelle Pawk, and Jane Powell, although she doesn't get to do too much. I saw Howard McGillin's understudy. He has a nice voice, although he needs to project. Overall, it was a pleasant night, and I left humming "You" and "The Best Thing that Ever Happened." I also got to talk to Gavin, which was probably the best moment of the evening.  ;)

Before I hear off to bed, I just want to say one thing on behalf of all of us who pronounce scary, hairy, and Mary alike.  I don't want to hear any laughter or criticism from any of you who add a consonant to the end of any word that ends in a vowel.

i.e.
soda.................. soder
               
vodka................ vodker
               
We all have our own particular vocal habits.  I rest my case.

TCB - do people actually say "vodker"?

Honey and lemon in warm water or whisky is all I can recommend. I have no faith in any cough medicines at all. I do hope you are much better for the mighty celebrations of tomorrow. Who I wonder is left from those days of old? Ron and WEL I assume.

Days of old?

Days of OLD?

It's a 2nd anniversary, TFO, not a centenary!

Good grief!  Days of o-l-d!

And besides Mr. WEL, there are many others who have been here longer than I (I started here in March 2002).

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I've been here just about the whole time, joining in back in November 2001, just about a week or maybe two after the site got going.  And what a grand ride it has been!

Oh, TCB, don't forget those who chose to put an "r" in the name of our state, pronouncing it "Worshington."  Ugh... stands my hair on end just typing it!

I just tried to check the archives but got nowhere. I can't remember when I joined - I know there was a gap between "The Real A".some other place that followed and my eventual tracking down of BK (thank you Mark).

I have just realised why I feel so close to Washington. My home state is VICTORIA. OK. I am slow but I am reliable. And Of course I am now past that 250 mark.

DR MDS--Maybe it was done with one intermission, maybe with two.  I can't remember for sure.  But structurally, that bad turn in the play (at least in my opinion it's a bad turn) occurs in "Act III."
