LET MY PEOPLE COME Kicks off Three Week Engagement At Ritz Bar and Lounge 4/17 2010/04/17
Posted: 4/18/2010
Earl Wilson, Jr. - Hi Everyone, I'm Earl Wilson, Jr, author of the music & lyrics for Let My People Coke. Just want to share with you how exciting it is for me to hear my songs being sung by a new generation of young performers who are appearing in our relaunch at The Ritz Bar here in NYC. The musical last appeared in the US in 1987 in Philly where it played for many years. We'll be at The Ritz til May 5. If you were ever in the original show anywhere in the world, or saw it anywhere in the world...and find that it brings back wonderful memories of those times, please stop by and say hello. I'll most likely be there for every performance[Where else would I be?]. If you never saw it originally...come see it now. It is a s fresh as ever...and there is nothing quite like...Let My People Come Earl Wilson, Jr.

Music will include comprehensive looks of all forms and genres including sacred, secular and commercial. Spoken word and video/film talents will also be included and acknowledged before and after the first PA radio broadcast near Pittsburgh at KDKA. We have begun to raise the funds from individuals, corporations and foundations. Your verbal and financial support is needed and is important for this venture. Contributions can be sent to PMMBH c/o Mid Penn Bank 17 South Second Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101

Posted: 4/18/2010
Bill Trousdale - Our first “building” is the World Wide Web. www.PMMBH.org Pennsylvanians have and will continue to make World Wide contributions to music and broadcasting innovation. It is my intent, through the guidance of the board, to be inclusive of existing music and broadcast museums throughout the Commonwealth. Education will be the focus with the eventual inclusion of interactive exhibits, working television and radio studios, sound stage and a showcase of what Pennsylvanians’ have contributed to the world. Please review and respond in support of the Pennsylvania Museum of Music & Broadcast History. A blog has been created for this purpose. Or visit Facebook: pmmbh home We hope you will join our supporters in building an institution that will preserve, present, and examine the records of musicians, composers, and educators created for or expressed through radio and television – records that tell the stories of The Keystone State: America’s cornerstone to history, culture, and people. Bill Trousdale-President We welcome your support

Photo Coverage: June Allyson Tribute in L.A.
Posted: 4/17/2010
Barbara McKenzie - I have been a fan of June Allyson's since I was 11 years old. I always wanted to be like her. She was the girl next door, the sweet wife, daughter and mother most of us try to immulate. In every interview that I have watched with June, she was the same unassuming person who never said anything negative about anyone. She overcame a terrible accident as a child and gave hope to many. There will never be another like her. I miss her.

Rialto Chatter: Disney Registers PETER AND THE STARCATCHERS Domains, Broadway Possible 2010/04/17
Posted: 4/17/2010
Rob Wills - I have read this series of books. They are fun, clever and wildly inventive. Although I would have thought of the series in terms of a film, if Disney can get it to work as a musical, great! Of course the NYC critics are probably already sharpening their pens and dipping them in vitriol. Except for Lion King I don't believe there has been one family oriented musical in the last 25 years that has found universal approval from the critics. No, I don't count the wonderful Billy Elliot as a family oriented musical. Kids younger than 10 would have little interest unless they are heavily into dance. If it were up to the critics for the last couple of decades there would be no shows to take the kids to except Lion King. They were all bad or mediocre. The critics have a lot to answer for.

Photo Coverage: First Photos of HAIR in London! 2010/04/07
Posted: 4/17/2010
BobsViews - "Hair" is the only show that I’ve ever seen that felt like an experience. The cast aka The Tribe is excellent, the production is fantastic and the songs sound better then ever. The shows themes (Sex, War, Drugs, Race) are as relevant today as they were forty years ago. The best part is the bond that the Tribe forms with the audience. It resonates with everyone long after they’ve left the theater. I urge all theatergoers to order tickets, participate in the show and dance in the finale. You will never forget the "Hair" experience.

MMM - To anyone reading - I am on the computer because I have just taken a break from a lot of chores and things around the house - and what helped me get through my stuff today was Allison I.'s album playing on my iPod. Folks, this album is actually really good. I'm in my early 30's, and yes it is geared towards the teen set, as it should be for Allison right now, but this album has some great tracks with mass appeal. The album is called "Just Like You". I picked it up for my teenage neice and so I downloaded it on my own iPod too - I'm so glad I did - it's the best sort of female anthem empowerment album since Pink's Funhouse - at least 5 tracks on there that appeal to non-teen girls and even the dudes. Try checking it out on I-Tunes. I do not know why Allison's management is not pushing her more - if they could get some of these tracks into the ears of the teenage girl set - I think this album would really catch on - we know what kind of buying power the tween and teen girl set has!

Theatre Communications Group Asks U.S. Supreme Court To Rule On Theatrical Smoking 2010/04/16

AudreySilk - This is why -- even though in principle I support the choice to use e-cigs -- the e-cig people are no better in behavior than the anti-smokers. The sellers and many of the users show up all over to peddle the product in a cult-like fashion. Well excuse me but the issue in this piece is the realistic depiction of smoking as a First Amendment right. Get it? The script as written by the playwright calls for a REAL cigarette -- not a plastic lookalike with vapor. E-cig people, please get your priorities straight.
