Voldemort is basically a middle school girl: he has a locket, a diary, a tiara, a ring, and is completely obsessed with a teenage boy.

I still have a couple of bites for tomorrow.   The piece was humongous.

Of course, "humongous" for you is pretty much normal for everyone else. ::)

Spent a lovely evening at the Pearl Brewery tonight, which was gorgeously decorated. Stories to come.

How about photos to go with the stories?

AND the seats were pretty comfortable, so I really like that part. :)

Comfortable seats is very important.

Listening to Charles Munch do Symphony Fantastique by Berlioz - wonderful performance.

I watched the first twenty-something minutes of The Harder They Fall, a smart-ass, meta, bit of twaddle that reviewers love because their so scared to criticize it. Some have, and few of its reviews are outright raves. But, I'll have more to say in the notes.

ASK BK DAY!

Is it true that at one time, before ALW became involved, Stephen Sondheim was working on the idea of a musical of SUNSET BLVD with Angela Lansbury as Norma Desmond?

If anyone's interested in Menotti's The Medium, starting tomorrow, OperaVision will be streaming the Croatian National Theatre Zagreb production.

I have a vague memory that I'd heard that it was suggested to him, but he thought that it had to be an opera, and he wasn't interested in writing an opera.  But I do remember hearing/reading about Angela being suggested as Norma.  I would've loved to see/hear that!

TCB, the answer, as far as I know, was that it was talked about - don't know about Lansbury - but when I asked him directly if he'd written anything the answer was not a note.

I don't think he thought it was a workable idea.
