"...At the center of the production's success is Broadway veteran Max von Essen, who is just about ideal as Tony: youthful, impetuous, idealistic and convincingly lovestruck. He possesses a smooth, clean, supple yet powerful tenor that makes the most of such great songs as Something's Coming, Maria and Somewhere."

For those of us who were sorry to hear that The Kennedy Center production of Mame would not be coming to B'way, there's a good chance that we'll get to hear one of the numbers tonight at Scott Nevins' show.
Rumor is ..... If there's time, Scott is planning on asking Max to sing *My Best Girl* from Mame. In my opinion, the most endearing number in the show.

You can order the cast recording of the Irish Rep's production of Finian's Rainbow from Sh-k-boom Records. You can get it from Amazon.com too but it's more expensive. Or you could try the Irish Rep on 22nd Street. They use to sell them right in the lobby.
You can also order the DVD or VHS of the Standing Ovations Concert & the Leading Men Concert from the guys at Broadw
MAME ~ The Kennedy Center Jun 14

I hope everyone who was seriously thinking about going to The Kennedy Center to see 'Mame' has already purchased their tickets because the show is now completely SOLD OUT!
One more reason to find this production a home on Broadway.
I was sitting two rows behind Mr. Schwartz that night and yes, he did leave during intermission.
From what I heard, there had been a family emergency. I understand that he called the company the next morning to apologize and make arrangements to see the show again.

Tonight, Sunday Feb. 26th, Max will be performing at Joe's Pub in the Flopz concert. I think he's singing "For Sarah" from DOTV.
Tomorrow night, he'll be doing a reading of G.B. Shaw's, "Fanny's First Play", at the Players Club.

I saw Alice in The Baker's Wife last summer at Paper Mill Playhouse. What a wonderful production, so close but still so far away for so many people. I'd love to see Stephen Schwartz bring it to Broadway, intact. To hear Alice sing Meadowlark... is a gift.
I was in Hartford two weeks ago to see 'The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber' concerts. What an amazing group of talented people. It would be nice if one of their stops was a little closer to NYC.
