Okay, there have been talks of a reunion, but why don't we just have a full-fledged CONCERT in Bryant Park! If some of the people on the board can't sing but just love theater, we have an audience already! Come, on--shows do it, why cant the BWW Message Board??!

Uuuummm or not.

Though if someone wants to put me on the spot at the Flea Market I'll probably sing.

Last years consisted of me, Daisy Hilton, JailyardGuy, chasing_rainbows43 and another friend of ours sitting outside the Shubert belting out showtunes towards the latter half of the afternoon.

Ahhh fun times :)

I think it's definately doable--we just need to--um build a stage. And--uh--get people to come!

Hey--if people are in the city and see lights and a stage going up, they'll definately stay for a free concert!

CJR and I will perform a rousing round of the duet "For Good" both dressed as Glinda during which we will argue over who was supposed to be Elphaba and throw green paint on each others dresses.

All while being like a comet pulled from orbit, of course.
And hang on, when did you win the discus?

Oh my God what an awesome idea. Come on, guys, let's put on a show.
Maybe we can do something amazing like BABES IN ARMS.

Ebonic_Singer, so you're going to organize everything, right? Build the stage, cover the cost, get the permits, cast the concert, provide the musicians, arrange for rehearsals. Now don't forget the sound equipement and crew. Oh, and you want lights, right? More permits, crew and equipment. Get people to come. Guess that means advertising of some sort. You can take care of that too, right? And what about after the concert? Will the party be at your place? Are you going to catering it? Come on, guys, am I forgetting anything? I just know I am.


Yes, a free concert is definitely doable. Want to shoot for next week? I hear tell they'll be some out-of-towners looking for something to do with their days.
Rest in peace, Iflitifloat.

If it saves my life, that'll be one hell of a musical I'll write afterwards.


Um, actually I was there too early for the Olympics. I was there June 26-July 5th. I was there when they won the Euro Cup which was awesome. At least when we were there Olympic spirit was ALL OVER and you felt like you were there during them. It was awesome.
