Well, you've read the notes, you are therfore happening and with it, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're on the ball, those cows, so it will be very soon.

Perhaps we could play a game of Tic Tac Toe - or, if not Tic Tac Toe we could play a game of Tac Toe Tick.  Did you know, for example, that Tic Tac Toe spelled backwards is Eot Cat Cit?

Just wanted to see who reads the posts BK. Colin transferred it from video to DVD today.  For a 1983/4 video it has transferred well.

If I could get Mr. Mark Bakalor to do it I would.  But, it's in today's notes, and hopefully everyone from this here site will at least check it out - although of all the people posting today, only a handful acknowledged that they'd visited it.  For example, dear reader Jose didn't mention visiting it.

I have that very same video of I Do! I Do!  It's been quite a while since I've watched it.  That'll be what's in one of my VCRs.  In another of my VCRs (I actually have three), is a tape to tape tonight's episode of "Battlestar Galactica."  My niece, who has never seen an episode, wants to watch it because she used to love "Xena:  Princess Warrior" and Lucy Lawless (who played Xena) will guest starring on "Battlestar Galactica" tonight.

In my CD player at work will be:  the original cast recordings of Stages and Together Again, "Harvey Schmidt Plays Jones & Schmidt" and Kevin Spirtas' CD single of "The Sweetest of Nights and the Finest of Days," which I just received in the mail yesterday!

In my DVD player:  "Bent" from Netflix...and something that's on its way.  I'll see what it is when I get it.  I forget what was I was getting next. ::)

Good morning, fellow Dear Readers. You won't believe it, and I scarcely believe it myself, but I bought two dvds yesterday. They were on sale 2 for 1, so I bought two -- West Side Story and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.  So now I own four.

Last night, I watched an Italian/Swiss film, Bread and Tulips, and I really enjoyed it more than I expected.  Lucia Maglietta was nice in it.  Iíll try to watch other films of her and of Silvio Soldini, the director of Bread and Tulips.

Good Evening DR Hisaka.

I've probably missed posts this past week but I've just noticed that Spin and Marty and other Disney sets are to be issued in December. - Lambert and Ben & Me are included as is Toot Whistle Plunk & Boom

DR JOSE, Congratulations on the official offer for Lestat!

I always confuse where you are NOW every time you post.( you seem to move in various places every a couple of days!) You look like a elusive Ninja.

Good morning all (Larry and me at the moment).

The good news is Barrymore's will be open in October. The bad news is the rumor is true. Everything west of the Imperial Theatre from 45th to 46th Street will come down to build a Disney Hotel and Theatre. That includes Sam's and Puelo's, Puelo's II and Frankie and Johnny's Steakhouse, the deli on 8th Avenue, other little stores and the parking lot.

It's going to take quite a while but we asked our Barrymore's waiter last night and he confirmed that the site has been sold. The restaurant's lease isn't up until February of 2006 and they don't know what will happen after that date. JR's Restaurant on 46th Street is already closed and Disney is buying the rest of the property, piece by piece including everything on 8th Avenue. Although the restaurant will probably close in 2006 the complex probably won't be up and running for another couple of years.

We saw The Pillowman last night. There are problems with the second act (and the opening of the first act) but, overall, it's excellent. The show is macabre and funny and gruesome at the same time. Billy Crudup and Michael Stuhlbarg (especially MS) are very, very good as brothers in a prison in some unnamed totalitarian state. The show would benefit from some trimming. Cut the intermission and re-shape the show. The second act drags (IMHO) and it would be even more powerful if the excess was cut and we got it all without a break. Zeljko Ivanek plays the "bad" cop. He seems to have morphed into playing unpleasant characters. He was a crooked politician on Oz and he's done many other roles since his breakout in Mass Appeal, oh, so many years ago. He was quite good and made the transition from early brutish behavior to his end scene believable. I wasn't, however, so impressed with Jeff Goldblum. He was OK but (maybe because it's near the end of the run, it closes next Sunday Sept. 18) I didn't see any flashes of brilliance. At times he seemed to be walking through the show. As I said earlier, Michael Stuhlbarg as the brother was a standout. After finally seeing his performance, I think he should have won the Tony over Liev Schreiber.

Good morning, all!  Ohmigod, Dear Friend BK, the only other person I know to use the word of the day is that legend Maestro John McGlinn.  Beware!  In the immortal words of DRPogue, be afraid . . .

I'm sorry to hear of your friend's death as well, BK.  What a great list of clients she was helping!  I hope the big event goes well this weekend, and I look forward to the stories and the photos.

I think I'm seeing my dear friend Robert Kimball today on Chicago Humanities Festival matters.  Hopefully, we'll have a bit of lunch, a bit of gossip, and I'll get a lot of work done.

I, too, have company this weekend.  A former intern of the New York State Theatre Institute who's now on film studies at SUNY Purchaqse is coming to vist for the weekend.  I haven't seen him in four years, although we've been in touch irregularly, and my mission for the past month has been to track him down.  It wasn't easy, as DRs MBarnum, Rodzinski, Jose, and Jane can attest.

TOD:
  DVD:  I'll let my guest decide.
  CD:  STAGES/TOGETHER, LOVESONG, PETER PAN
  VCR:  cheap porn

I have a number of CDs to choose from this morning. How Now, Dow Jones, OBC of Candide, OBC of Camelot, OBC of Bye, Bye Birdie, the 1962 Off-Broadway revival of Anything Goes with Eileen Rodgers and Hal Linden, OBC of Follies, Original Cast Recording of Forever Plaid, A Wrinkle in Swingtime (Elena Bennet and Fred Barton) and Isn't It Romantic (Michael Feinstein).

I've done all my weekly radio listening (including Donald's Elaine Paige show) so I'm off to the CDs.

Jose mentioned last night:

What was the name of the flop that the Hair guys wrote? We could both picture the poster on the wall at Joe Allen, but the name....

Was it Dude?


Besides Dude[/i] one of the authors, Galt MacDermot, was also involved in another big flop in 1972.

Via Galactica, which ran at the then Uris Theatre from  November 6, 1972 (first preview) to December 2, 1972. It opened on November 28th after 15 previews and ran for a grand total of 7 performances, closing on December 2. It was set 1000 years in the future in 2972.

Here is a link to some information about the show.

Scroll down to the Via Galactica portion.
