Thanks, Owen.

How is one supposed to know who "the Old show queens" were?  Did they hold regular meetings or something? Is there a roster?

Your design is infinitely superior to what they went with. Even disregarding the comparison, you have excellent design instincts for a

I had assumed that was a stand-in until the final artwork is chosen. Yeah, lousy. But it's the recording that counts, and I'm looking forward to it.

Studio Recordings vs. Live Recordings  Oct 12 2020, 04:13:44 PM

Love Charlie Kringas's post on Thomas Z. Shepard, and he's 100% correct. I've never cared for the revival Sondheim recordings, and that's much of the reason why. What's interesting is to compare the studio-recorded Paper Mill Playhouse Follies--complete, and conducted by Jonathan Tunick, no less--with Shepard's live Follies in Concert. Somehow, with the latter, we feel we are in that crumbling ruin of a theater. I'm not sure how he accomplished

Oh, I see what you did there! So clever and darling is our Joe...

I was merely being accurate, but I accept your endearments.

Parsons as the Joker is an inspired idea. A bond villain might not be bad, either, but I'd love to see his interpretation of the Joker.

Anita Bryant never had a gay audience, so she could hardly be cancelled by them. The question suggests not understanding what cancel culture is. 



Randy Rainbow  Oct 9 2020, 12:35:19 PM

Cancel Culture is the opposite of democratic. People have rejected what offends them as long as media has existed. Cancel Culture shames those who refuse to go along, and generally, if anyone starts a topic on the "cancelled" subject, the forum will be barraged with attacks. It's largely another form of online bullying. 

I don't care about Randy Rainbow--never heard of him until this subject came up, still have encountered nothing from him (nor feel the lack).&nb

Here's an easy way to remember: all verbs need subjects, so if the word is coming before the verb or is doing the verb, it is "whoever." 

And, yes, it is heartbreaking and I hope people write their congressperson, as she asks.

I always wondered why it was written that way? Trust a bitchy queen to f^ck it up.

Karma came around.

It's too bad the change was made for petty reasons, but I think it's the best way to close the act. It's the only way to make the

Ah, entitlement rearing its ugly head again here.

Maybe you will get it if I say you don't have "standing."Kinda like my relative who has never traveled anywhere but is filled with opinions on what's wrong with people in other countries.
