Is that a wedding ring?



Loudest gasp you've heard in the theatre  Feb 12 2020, 04:31:31 PM

THAT SCENE in DEATHTRAP.  I've never, nver, never, heard an audience scream and jump out of fright.  I saw the show twice and the reaction was always the same.  For those who haven't witnessed it...I don't want to spoil it for you.



BROADWAY CHOREOGRAPHY I WOULD LOVE TO LEARN  Feb 7 2020, 04:05:12 PM

These are my top 5 I dream of learning one day:

1.  I WANT TO BE HAPPY TAP NUMBER (No, No, Nanette)

2.  i HOPE I GET (Chorus Line) - any part of the opening number

3.  FAVORITE SON  (Will Rogers Follies) - you can sit to "dance"

4.  SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE (Contact)  

5. LET'S RAISE A GLASS TOGETHER (GRAND HOTEL)  would love to dance with the hotel staff)



Entrances That Give You Chills  Feb 4 2020, 06:07:04 PM

Katherine Hepburn coming down those stairs in her salon as COCO Chanel.  The night I saw it the audience wouldn't stop applauding her entrance and Kate even tried to speak her lines but got drowned out with even more applause.  



re: Who Have You Seen Naked on Stage?  Jan 16 2020, 04:28:38 PM

This didn't happen in a show....but, I was in Carol Channings hotel room overseas conversing with her husband Charles Lowe about a problem that had arisen.  Well, Ms Channing did not hear or see us and walked into the room in her birthday suit.  Boy did I get an eye full.  Top that!



Favorite Dance Number Music?  Nov 16 2018, 08:48:51 PM

I'm very fond of the 2 big dance numbers in "ON YOUR Toes":  'ON YOUR TOES"  and 'SLAUGHTER ON TENTH AVENUE".    SLAUGHTER is great for going out on walks and/or exercising in your room too.



Plays you want to see revived in the next 10 years  Oct 27 2018, 06:25:59 PM

Someone beat me to this but I would love to see a revival of DEATHTRAP.   The twist and turns were endless and it was the first time I have ever heard an audience scream at a particular part of the play.  It happened at every performce that I saw.



Most enthusiastic audience you have experienced?  Feb 6 2018, 04:03:39 PM
In all of my theatre going years nothing will ever compare to the 3,389 performance of A CHORUS LINE. It was one jaw dropping moment after another. Of course the finale just put you in theatrical heaven. NOTHING will ever top that performance.

Plus an honorable mention: Luciano Pavarotti's final opera performance at the MET. Love flowed from audience to stage and vice-versa.
