Hello, Dolly! score question Feb 28
2009, 01:04:30 PM
anyone familiar with the current rental score going out these days? the copy I have, I would assume is meant for Dolly's vocal line to be sung down the octave, if this is the same key as Channings, or have they changed these keys? I think the audience wants to hear a nice low alto Dolly, but some of these look like even Channing couldn't comfortably take down the octave, it hover around the D below middle C.
I KNOW she wasn't high belting in the staff this score is written in.

with accounting for inflation, when i book a lead at a LORT A, my salary is the same as it was in the 70s doing non-eq dinner theatre.
I stuck it into one of those year/dollar value calculators and nearly wept. thought my career had progressed. guess not.

did anyone see any incarnation of this? I have only heard the 4 redone songs, but i love them. the whole score is only recorded on a Japanese import with Todd doing all vocals. I've never heard it.
I love Orton, and I WORSHIP Rundgren, so how did this fail so miserably?

actually, Papa, it's not the color of the Washington Monument, it's the fact that the Leaning Tower of Pisa is, well, leaning. I like my phallic symbols to stand up straight and hold their heads up proudly.

who could we suggest for the other actor? maybe that guy who was on some 80s sitcom and then did Surreal Life and there was a rumor about him and Allanis Morrisette? Dave something? I would so go see him and Bill Irwin engage in verbal sword play.

if you've spent much time at the equity lounge, you've seen those people. I can recall saying to my friends "if I ever become that desparate, please stop me from auditioning".
and now I'm afraid I AM becoming one of those people.

it's definately not a rule. Equity doesn't make rulings about headshots. You could actually show up with out one, but you would look like a dweeb.
Everyone is using color because it no longer is more expensive than b/w, and back in the day, you had to submit b/w to reproduce in the Playbill cuz if was more difficult for the printers to convert a color shot into a nice tiny b/w. But now everything is digital so it's all samey samey and the printers can pretty much do anything off a di

it's just that the only glossies I've seen were elderly people, using a shot that was clearly taken and printed 30 yrs ago, or the early 80s, and of course b/w. And I always felt sad for them. The same people that have a really tattered 16 bar cut of sheet music that is really faded.
or a fresh-from-the-sticks kid who has shots taken by their brother and printed in their own home dark room (you really don't see that much anymore, most newcomers these days appear to have done their hom

now that color has taken over as the "norm" has anyone ever seen "glossy" color headshots? Seems like every shot looks so similar now, semi-matte vibrant color, white border, with the only choice in variety being the turned-sideways print.
