Happy Birthday, DR Elmore!! Hope this year is a great one...

I'm starving and I don't get lunch for another 2 hours. That ain't right.

Vixmom - Good point, about justifying the price of the ticket.  The producers on the panel, however, seemed to feel that - except in rare circumstances, such as a star-driven show or an award-winner - people aren't likely to cough up the $90-100 ticket price for typical plays anyway, since there are so many discounts sent out.  But it seems people will pay top dollar (and premium prices) even to see small casts and minimal production values in the rare case where a nonmusical has become an "event," such as Billy Crystal's one-man show with one set and one person.  And people seem to have no problem paying the high price (even premium prices) for certain musicals with smaller casts and production values, such as AVENUE Q and SPELLING BEE.  They seemed to feel the issue was getting an experience you couldn't get elsewhere, rather than getting your money's worth in terms of how big the show onstage is.

While watching an episode of "Posh Nosh" this weekend, they referenced a shop that just tickled me silly:

I can't remember if I posted since the live Big Brother show. Yuck.  Very disappointed in the results. Ivette vs Maggot. Yuck, yuck, yuck.  Anyhow I've barely even following the feeds anymore, since I have little interest now that Janelle is gone.  However, the only thing to look forward to is that apparently the jury was vicious towards Maggie and Ivette.

I personally hope Ivette wins, since i like her a bit more than maggie. Plus since she won parts 1 and 3 of HOH (and beat janelle fair and square) i think she deserves it.

One thing I read that Maggie said in the house this weekend made me totally sick.  Ivette told her that if she had kept janelle that most likely the jury would have turned on her.  And do you know what maggie said????  Maggie: "well i never would have forgiven you!".

What a witch!

Hello, all!  I'm all caught up.  I love the tv schedules; what an amazingly creative crew of wonderful folk I've been lucky to surround myself with!  Thank you all for the birthday wishes.  

DRRon Pulliam, I will not be turning 3004 today, although most of last year I felt that old.  The 3003 is from the address of my parents' house where I lived from 1949-1979 when I moved to New York: 3003 Goldman Avenue.

DRJose, I can always use a 2 for 1 margarita!  

Back to the band parts!

I wish!  But the orchestra out there will be comprised of "locals".  Ah, well.  He, the concertmaster, just wanted to start getting everyone's contact info.  -WOW!  And almost five months before the first New York rehearsal!  Now that's efficient!

Today is one of those days where I'm just treading water to stay on top of my mound of paperwork and phone calls and emails and...and...and...  And my supervisor approved someone else to go on a week-long vacation this week after he specifically told us that no one was to go on vacation this month because we're so busy. And then he put all of her paperwork in my inbox because my desk "is the closest to Nicole's."

My brain is reeling trying to figure how the hell to quit this job and still be able to pay my bills...

And I just had another telephonic conversation with the contractor regarding possible starting dates for the show... and the most likely venue... I'm hoping no one gets all shook up over anything...

DR Jose - Are you hinting something about ALL SHOOK UP?  I take it you read the item in Cindy Adams' column today in the NY Post (at the end of her column) regarding someone claiming to have walked in on an "out and out orgy" backstage at ALL SHOOK UP.

I think I said this last night, but I really can't watch the pro-cop, pro-prosecutor crime dramas today.  They really don't show the crap that the cops and prosecutors pull and make them look like some sort of hero that they really aren't.  I know, it's fiction....and since they can't really do the things they do on tv or solve crimes the way they do on tv, it has helped with juries thinking that there is shoddy police work.. Ok that part is fun.

What ever happened to the hero being the criminal defense lawyer? Perry Mason could rip them to shreds and never have to get past a preliminary hearing.  Could you imagine To Kill A Mockingbird from the prosecutor's point of view.  I shudder to think what that would have been like.

Enough of a rant. I have to get back to work. Later

You mean I'm going to have to register to read that piece of crap (sorry, I'm editorializing here) the NY Post. It's hypocritical, I know. I read it before they required registration, just for the theatre reviews after a show opened, but not for anything else. I guess I'll have to come up with some fake name, etc to see what Miss Adams is talking about.
