Why thank you, my Naughty Namo.

Aliteration is my specialty.

How about 'pithy princess'?

I think Horsey makes a good point. Some of you guys spend way too much time on this board and never have anything interesting to say except to put down fans and to chat amongst yourselves.

So there's 24 hours in a day, if we spend 2-3hrs on and off a day, chatting about something we all have given our lives to in one way or another AND being able to do it with a variety of interesting people to boot, what's so wrong! And if the script gets a bit "rough" and we "chat amongst ourselves"(which is the whole idea on a message board)then maybe you should move along darling...I hear the Up With People website is a blast!

Is a "bitter queen" is someone who has standards and who knows what good theater is, then count me in!

It seems that we homosexuals see more theater than the average heterosexual, and as a result, know what goes into making a show good. We also know what we like and dislike.

I'm tired of inferior works being presented on Broadway and passed off as "art". Sorry, but "art" they ain't.

There was a time when a show stood on its own merits--and (perhaps) a good review in the New York Times. However, we live in an era of hype. Where the news media picks up a soundbite and within seconds the whole world knows that Rosie threw a hissy fit and that Raul went home to take a bath. All of this is publicity. Negative publicity, but still PUBLICITY. People who have no interest in the theater scene know about a show called TABOO and that Rosie is involved with it in some manner. The same can't be true of NEVER GONNA DANCE, which may be an honest and more entertaining work all the way around.

I see through the hype. I see the shows I want to see and see them trhough eyes that have viewed over 3,000 Broadway productions since the 60's. I've seen really good productions and some that smelled like flounders n the August heat. However, I made my mind up for myself and wasn't taken in by grandiose special effects or clever marketing campaigns.

If this makes me a "bitter queen", then: "So let it be written; so let it be done!"
"Long live God!" (GODSPELL)

I have nothing to say and too much time in which to say it. The only reason I log in here, like everyone else, is beacuse someone is twisting my arm to do. I'm being forced to read this banal nonsense.
BTW, for all those claiming that we spend too much time here not saying anything, where are all your intellectually stimulating pearls of wisdom? As I go through threads and posts, I'm not seeing any extrodinary contributions under certain names.

I also prefer Bitchy Queen to Bitter Queen.

Now, can the rest of the world please conform to my likes and dislikes and speak only about those subjects that interest me.

Dollypop, it's good to hear an opinion from you. I am very much looking forward to seeing Never Gonna Dance, and at first, I was I was looking forward to Taboo, but was put off by the hype and all, but I might give it a chance sometime later.

Also, I just wanted to state that I was reluctant to respond to this thread at first, because I just don't want to get into a debate about sexual orientation, and the first post sort of implied that. But for the past few days I was thinking about it and there is a difference between message boards and chat rooms.

HANK! you are 100% right, message boards are to be used to swipe postive "quotes" off of regarding ill- fated Broadway shows. Chat Rooms are for bitter queens.

Sheekala, read my posting carefully. I never mentioned the term bitter queen. I do not find humor in that language. My posting was a reply to someone who did use the term. You seem to do this often, maybe a nerve was hit.

No worries Lou, I have you to thank for "on-going negative attack artists", which I love. And while I may be passionate regarding my dislikes, I am also always estatic concerning my positive theater adventures.It's just that at present time the current roster of new Broadway shows leave me wanting.

Time for me to take my sunday clothes out of the mothballs and ridicule anyone who does not share my views on EVERYTHING. Nothing today is any good and only those of us who can sing GOODTIME CHARLEY and know who the singer who errs in PUT 'EM BACK are qualified to have opinions.

I am the second coming of Al Dente. Bitter, table for two, please

What's upsetting to me is I CAN sing Goodtime Charley.

I really am a queen, aren't I?

WHY CAN'T WE ALL BE NICE???

And I played in a pit orchestra for Li'l Abner! "Put 'Em Back" is in the rather scary key of C flat. I remember being slightly stunned and dazed working my way through it, because you don't see C flat every day of the week.

Wow, Auggie, I'm flattered. To me, that is what so frustrating about the "shill" label, that it stops conversation about the show and transfers it to a poster. How does one "prove" one is not a shill? Yet the label is (usually) automatically believed.

Obviously, I've been there, and it's a touchy subject for me.

I think the "shill" label is stamped on those posters who suddenly appear and posts raves and then vanish after a day or three.

I got the line "They was long, lean and lanky/But they loved hanky panky" in my production of Li'l Abner. I think that remains the only song I've sung in C flat.
