Judy Kaye Rings Some Bells 2010/11/21
Posted: 11/21/2010
Michael - I agree. When will a show be written for the talented, versatile, delightful ... and reliable JUDY KAYE? I repeatedly play her few solo recordings. Whenever I see her onstage, I'm astonished by her star quality. The time for a JUDY KAYE vehicle is long overdue; and by the way, her credits (Broadway, off-Broadway, Regional, and Road - not to mention TV commercials) all prove she has "paid her dues." Apparently you and I will have to fight over who will be first in line to buy a ticket to Ms. Kaye's next appearance - hopefully a big Broadway musical designed just for this deserving diva!

Abbey Theatre to Bring Rickman in JOHN GABRIEL BORKMAN to NYC in '11 2010/07/02
Posted: 11/21/2010
Tonja - Seems you didn't understand this story?! Borkman just had to be like this, it belongs to his character! Mr Rickman wasn't bored - he played a man who has lost all important things in life. Freedom, love, friendship, power, confidence, money. He has to be looking depressed and dissapointed by being locked up for totally 8 years, waiting for someone who might help him! I would like to see your behaviour in this case! But live and let live... My personal opinion after watching this performance: It was a really brillant staging from all of them, first to mention Alan Rickman! A 'must see' for real fans of this great actor!

Judy Kaye Rings Some Bells 2010/11/21
Posted: 11/21/2010
Bruce Winston - Athough Judy Kaye undoubtedly makes a wonderful Sue Summers in the Encore production of "Bells Are Ringing," I would have gladly seen the production if she had been rightfully cast in the leading role of Ella Peterson. Having read all the reviews of Kelli O'Hara's performance, it is apparent that she doesn't completely have the chops to bring off the comedic aspects of this leading role, whereas Judy Kaye is in my opinion is Broadway's greatest musical comedy actress of our time. She should be starring in every show she does instead of graciously accepting the supporting character roles.

Legend Leslie Uggams Talks Uptown Downtown and Her Career 2010/11/18
Posted: 11/21/2010
C. Rousseau Gilliard - With ALL due respect to Miss Uggams, who is a formidable and legendary talent in her own right, do these PROMOTERS have any idea of the opportunity they have by bringing this show AS IS to BROADWAY?? They don't need a known 'star' to put butts in the seats. LENA HORNE IS the STAR.....and NIKKI CRAWFORD gets OUT of the WAY to bring LENA to life as WE REMEMBER her!!! WHO, on the scene, can 'put butts' in the seats AND 'channel' LENA other than NIKKI CRAWFORD? That show was phenomenal as is. Producers should re think this idea, if it's true. Horne is an iconoclast. SHE is the draw.....and the show needs an actor who personifies Lena....not an actor who brings 'cume', as it were.......just a thought,

Legend Leslie Uggams Talks Uptown Downtown and Her Career 2010/11/18
Posted: 11/21/2010
dnltblog - I think Uggams is being quite generous toward Nikki Crawford. I saw Crawford in Stormy Weather and I thought she was fine in the role but she's not a showstopper. As well, she has no name recognition. The show itself is pretty lightweight and its primary appeal is the music. The reviews will be savage so it would help enormously to have a marquee talent starring as the Young Lena. Otherwise the show will close in a month.

Raul U. - Bing, "Filipina" is not a slang. That is the right grammatical word for a female Filipino. This is due to our Spanish heritage. What is wrong is if you call a "Filipina" lady a "Filipino". Another thing you mentioned is that "all people born in the Philippines are Filipinos". Not true. A whole lot of other nationalities were born in the Philippines and retained their foreign citizenship (such as Americans.) A female American in the Spanish language is Americana and male is Americano, Mexicana-Mexicano, I can go on and on. So please before you lecture other people, do your homework.

Michelle Nicastro Passes Away at 50 2010/11/05
Posted: 11/20/2010
ROB - I remember Michelle as a young star at Northwestern. She was a stand out in many of the campus shows including the Waa-Mu Show. There were many theater majors in Evanston - MIchelle always seemed to be in a class by herself. She had such stage presence and of course a beautiful voice. I am sorry to hear about this. My condolences to her family and friends.

Photo Coverage: Kellie Martin Promotes TV Movie 'The Jensen Project' in New York 2010/07/14
Posted: 11/20/2010
Don Treact - Since due to the CUSP those 13 episodes (generalized into a subject mode) "blurred out" the real Jessica Fletcher episode prediction process analysis, the episode with Jessica moving to New York part time in an apartment but meeting the murderer police lieutenant does actually serve a special role, as before the following 29 newly predicted and seen episodes up to July 8, '08 but also because in fact it was the first newly predicted and seen episode in '08 to have a murderer police executive or officer. Only 9 episodes were predicted and seen in '08 before it. As a "floater" prediction, it was made on Wednesday, February 27 after Hallmark had inserted the witch-for-publicity one discussed at the end of web page 9. Commensurate to this level of discussion, I actually had a bad bike accident only four nights after the "floater" prediction which covers Jessica moving to New York and almost being murdered by the police lieutenant was written.

Myrna - The word 'Filipina' is grammatically correct. An example is the Tagalog song, 'Dalagang Pilipina', where gender is used to distinguish female when the word ends in the letter A.

Posted: 11/20/2010
Don Treact - The "floater" prediction gets written the night of Wednesday, February 27, '08 and of course isn't needed that night and so it begins to sit. Eventually the prediction, about an apartment apparently being redecorated in New York but really being used for perfume counterfeiting, with an ugly-smelling plant used to cover the smells from the operation accidentally being sent to Jessica's apartment, will cover for the episode with Jessica moving to New York and running into the lieutenant's diamond smuggling operation. But it doesn't "bond" to that episode until the night of the state police stop, Monday, April 7, '08. Only 4 nights after it was written, then, I had had to write a fax late into the night and was bicycling home at midnight. I hit the metal post to keep cars off the bike path where only a personal property access lane crossed the path. Made a bad decision. Tore my right leg well open below the knee. That got taken care of, all night long. Still the prediction was sitting.

Posted: 11/20/2010
Don Treact - The discussion has not remained on the episode when Jessica moves to an apartment in New York that she will use part of the time, only to meet the stupidly crazy murderer police lieutenant who smuggles diamonds in overseas furniture shipments, simply because it was the first episode the night of the state police stop on April 7, '08 and was (as remains to be shown) so well covered by a "floater" prediction that was 5 weeks old that night, and because that was the first fresh and unseen episode to be seen in 5 weeks and thus ushers in the 29 following it which were predicted and seen in the following period all the way up to Tuesday, July 8, '08. These are good reasons to be on it. But a great reason is that as a general point in time, the episode goes with all of this and still has the potential to handle all the questions about the possibly 13 episodes total in which police executives or officers are the murderer(s?).

Legend Leslie Uggams Talks Uptown Downtown and Her Career 2010/11/18
Posted: 11/20/2010
Bernardette Lambert - It is a shame that Ms. Uggams is not woman enought to "do the right thing" and support Nikki Crawford more than the above sad commentary. Ms. Uggams along with all of us who were privilaged to see Stormy Weather know that Nikki Crawford can draw an audience. What happened to the Leslie Uggams that got her start in a largely white theactrical world. No one knew who she was however given the opportunity to perform, she became a household name. I came to Pasedena to see Nikki Crawford because of her outstanding performance in Las Vegas in Spamalot.. Through her God given talents, her resemblence of a young Lena Horne and her poweful performances Ms. Crawford is a talent that the world of theater needs to share with a larger audience. No doubt I will be the first of many others who are fans of Nikki Crawford to comment on wanting to see this show go to Broadway with Nikki Crawford...

Don Treact - The CUSP is the Current U.S. President who told huge adult female crowds in the Midwest that "change" was coming. You say Midwest, when you say nothing at all. Okay, okay, the CUSP promised St. Louis female adults that their bodies could serve to transfer something over to the U.S. troops in a medical sense. This is included as a way to organize that the CUSP caused the generally present holes in analysis thought for the Jessica Fletcher episode prediction process since the start of web page 9, meaning all the posts since the prediction for the episode set in Cairo, Egypt went in. 41 posts, at least. Had analysis thought been at strength, the posts would have retained that the prediction process itself relates Jessica Fletcher artificially saying murder to responses by guest characters to either murder or Jessica Fletcher, so that the nature of the guest characters remain an open book to ask questions with simultaneous to that a murderer and his or her victim(s) were specifically created. This is what has vanished for 41 posts.

John - The Spanish were the ones who 'named' the islands "Las Islas Filipinas" and I've spoken to many Spanish-speaking people and they always describe a female from the Philippines a 'Filipina' and a male a 'Filipino'...so I would go with the "Spanish" grammatical distinction. Why don't you 'Filipinos' rename your country in your native language THEN you can apply your grammatical distinction...

bing - It's nice to see some photos for this event. I would like to say though you have a lot of spelling mistakes on the city of Toronto and errors on the use of Charice's heritage. First and foremost, all people born from the Philippines are Filipinos. Filipino language does not have a masculine and feminine grammatical distinction, unlike French. People have misused the word Filipina as a heritage of a female Filipino. Most of us consider the word Filipina as a slang and would like to suggest that people should stop using this word. Americans, Canadians, Chinese, Japanese, etc. are equally described for male and female, and that's the same for Filipinos.
