Orpheus Descending or Cat on a Hot Tin Roof?  Sep 23 2012, 08:58:52 AM

OMG I'm LOL! I was reading this thread and just kept thinking, "Why on earth would anyone revive Little Mary Sunshine"?!?

One more time to the top . . . and I finally GOT it!

Turned 50 a few weeks back . . .

Cromer to Direct Kidman in Sweet Bird of Youth Revival  Sep 18 2010, 07:06:39 PM
Gosh darn it - I looked at the calendar - it's NOT April 1.

Which came first, do you suppose . . . the chicken or the egg?

My first thought when reading the headline was, "Isn't she a bit old for Heavenly?" Then I read the article. Not my first choice, but it could be a career-changing move if it works.

Chess original London production - the chess board floor tilting up for the Duet on the Mountain.

Audra MacDonald and/or Michael Cerveris and/or Patti LuPone - well, just anytime they'r

Blood Brothers  Feb 6 2010, 10:51:13 PM
Saw it in London w/Kiki Dee and Con O'Neal - great theatrical experience.

Saw the National Tour in San Francisco with Petula Clark and all three Cassidy brothers. Lesser theatrical experience, and, oddly, like an hour longer.

I have the Israeli Original Cast Album, which is beautiful.

Really want to direct this one day.
