Posted: 7/28/2010
Paulette - I am so proud for Krystal. Yes..she is one of the most talented young ladies I have seen in a very long time. I remember her growing up around me, always singing with the expression on her face as if she was feeling what she was singing. Now I understand it. You keep on doing "You" Krystal. You Rock Girl. We are so Proud of you back in Va.

Cullum Talks ON A CLEAR DAY... with Riedel 2010/07/28
Posted: 7/28/2010
bill goulding - I saw the original production of CLEAR DAY with Barbara Harris and John Cullum several times. Barbara Harris was so brilliant as DAISY/MELINDA. Barbara then did THE APPLE TREE for which she won THE TONY AWARD as BEST ACTRESS IN A MUSICAL.. Her performance in THE APPLE TREE wow!!! It is so sad that she did not continue doing Broadway shows...Ms. Harris was truly a gifted brilliant actress. I believe her last stage appearance was in MAHAGONY at the old Anderson Theatre on Second Avenue in 1970 which folded quickly which she of course was just fabulous. A terrible loss for the Broadway stage...I still cherish my memories of the DIVINE BARBARA HARRIS.

STAGE TUBE: Ken Page & Stephanie J. Block Talk CATS at the Muny 2010/07/22
Posted: 7/28/2010
Rachel - Anyone else catch the mistake in the bio for Stephanie? They said she was in the original company of Wicked, and she wasn't. She was the original Elphaba during the workshops of Wicked, and then during the tour & eventually on Broadway, but she wasn't part of the original company. She WAS apart of the original company of 9 to 5 the musical. Anyway, there's my two cents.

Inspect This 'Hound' For Laughs 2010/07/25
Posted: 7/28/2010
j Godfrey - I saw the play Sunday afternoom, and had a hearty laugh. Airaldi is a genius in playing so many roles, as he dashes off stage for a speedy change of costumes, portraying so many characters (both male and female) that his dressers back stage had to have fast hands and thoughts to keep everything in order. He is marvelous, a great actor, with many voices and manerisms. For a good time, and lots of fun, see this play. Expect merriment! There is nothing serious in any of the protrayals. Broad comedy

Actor Larry Keith Dies At Age 79 2010/07/19
Posted: 7/27/2010
Deborah Sandler - Larry Keith was a dear friend of my father, Jerrold Sandler, and so became a friend of our entire family. He showed up at my wedding with a video camera, and the resulting tape has been treasured these past 22 years. We will never forget the magnificent eulogy he gave at my father's funeral. It was a delight to see him many years later in Caroline or Change, and to schmooze with him over dinner afterward. I will miss his warmth, generosity, and his wicked sense of humor. Deborah Sandler

STAGE TUBE: Original 'Annie' McArdle Talks Playing 'Hannigan' 2010/07/26
Posted: 7/27/2010
Marc - Watching the clips of the show makes me hope that this will make the producers of the Bway revival of Annie to pick ANYONE other than Ms. McArdle. She is awful. I've seen high school acting thats better than what she displays.

MARVELOUS WONDERETTES Plays Shadowland Theatre, 7/23-8/15 2010/07/23
Posted: 7/27/2010
Charlie Arnemann - Attended the Marvelous Wonderettes at the Shadowland Theater, as was more than surprised at how I enjoyed this four girl show. Energy, humor, and great harmony from these great performers, ran a close second to Smokey Joe's Cafe. Choice of songs, most from those 50's and 60's great girl groups, brought back so many memories. Met the stars at a cast party following the show, and was again ipressed by their warmth and beauty. This show should be a must see, for all who need a great nite out! Hoo-ray!

Photo Coverage: Kellie Martin Promotes TV Movie 'The Jensen Project' in New York 2010/07/14
Posted: 7/27/2010
Don Treact - Jingle jangle morning---Russian & U.S. small jets---over North Pole. Here's the headline in "The Columbus Dispatch" and then we'll have an abbreviated discussion of the article. MOVES BY JESSICA TO CALEB AND ASHLEY NOW FORM MAJOR AREA TO NATION'S INQUIRY AS PARTY CHARACTERS REDUCE INTO SEMI-CONTROLLED ONES---SCENES TAKE ON A MORE FLUID GLOSS. The article is by two young women reporters, Grimlite Morand and Grisane Blone. It takes the idea that Dexter Baxendale freaked out Jessica Fletcher internally, because he reserved Preston Giles as ruining those who framed him up to the point of the party, a point where Giles had a lot of wealth as well as freedom to lose. Jessica is actually affected by this, Morand and Blone say, and they have some intriguing sources.

BWW Interviews: FALLING FOR EVE's Krystal Joy Brown 2010/07/26
Posted: 7/27/2010
Robert Hagedorn - The exegesis for the 2nd and 3rd chapters of Genesis causes nervousness, especially among mystics. Why? Because the real sin Adam and Eve committed was anal sex--the mystery Saint Augustine almost solved 1600 years ago. (He thought their sin was normal penile/vaginal sex.) For more information google "WikiAnswers-What is wrong with Robert Hagedorn's Blogs"

THEATRE TALK: Love Never Dies Shines Surprisingly Bright 2010/07/15
Posted: 7/27/2010
DW1 - So, let me get this straight: The musical where a girl's former best friend shoots and kills her, leaving the girl's son, who's just been ditched by the only father he's ever known, to be raised by his stranger of a biological father, who abandoned said girl after a one-night stand, is "fun," and the way to enjoy it is to not pay attention to the plot at all. My, my, my. That's definitely a ringing endorsement. lol

Music can't fly on its own, and even the most talented of singers get involed in something they can't save - remember Michael Crawford in the Woman in White?? Nuff said...go see the original POTO and spend your money wisely!

GLEE Creator Ryan Murphy Rewrites Charice's Episodes? 2010/07/20
Posted: 7/27/2010
ninjaone - It is about VALUES that they are inevitably inculcating in her and her fans, Robert. She's 18. Her fans are teenagers. And it was not free. It was at the cost of her reputation, making her look shallow, and that she needs this kind of work to be done to have this to look fresh. NO ONE respectable in Hollywood admit they have a job done because they are not proud of it and don't want to encourage others to follow suit. And they know they are role models. She is the victim, actually, and the one who benefitted from the controversy is the doctor whose patient is an international star. Especially now it's all over the entertainment news in the US. Charice, her mother and her management should not have allowed her to be used like that. Even if she was paid.

Angela - Simon is right. Katie is an inspiration I am not a victim of a terrible crime but recently lost absolutely everything. After seeing the doco on Katie her determination has inspired me to pick myself up, dust my self off and start all over again. This time I have way more determination. I also saw Simon's interview with Oprah and learned that simon also lost everything at age 30, he was so frank and honest, this was impressive as I related very much to the days when he said he hid himself away when he is feeling dark. Thank you Katie and thank you Simon. Angela - Cambs, UK
