Well, you've read the notes, the notes were tuned and played on the piano, and now it is time for you to post until the tuned cows come home.

Speaking of Mike Shayne, Morton Gould looks not unlike Lloyd Nolan.

Slept fitfully. Weird dream. I was on a review panel with a bunch of much younger people. You had to do a five-letter Wordle to get into the panel discussions. Turns out an older Hispanic woman and I had to go through a different entrance and our Wordles were longer.  Then they dressed the entry guards in Shakespearean costumes. Only mine had drawn swords. When I pointed out that that was intimidating, the organizers laughed it off. I no longer had to do the puzzle to get in, but the woman did, and they kept making it harder for her.

I woke around 12:30 with my leg pains making sleep impossible. I don't think I got back to sleep before 4:00 or so. Thatch and Annabelle stayed with me all night, although my restlessness must have been a pain.

Last night, for the first time in weeks, I watched the ballet Star on the Rise. I listened to the score on earphones, and I'm happy that it sounded so well. Doug Fullington told me yesterday that another company has expressed interest in staging it. I do love the cowboys in it. They remind me a bit of the Keystone Kops, and there always seems to be some mischief going on just out of the primary focus.

Paint Your Wagon was revived by Encores!, starring a wonderful Keith Carradine, and the Frederick Loewe Foundation sponsored a wonderful cast album of the show. The version that Tams-Witmark rented for the past 60 years was the post-Broadway tour version.  Like Camelot, Lerner never fixed the book to his satisfaction, and he stopped working with Agnes de Mille because her dances got better reviews than his script. I do wish the album had been a 2-CD set, with Trude Rittman's dance arrangement played without cuts, and the 3-5 cut songs recorded., although the Encores! recording does include the cut "What do the Other Folk Do?"
