Re: The Abaisse Performance Rubric

I'm going to code a little something with a slider so that you can slide along 1 - 10 and when you stop at any given number, a list of performers who sit at that level will pop up. And then maybe make it filterable so you can apply multiple settings and we'll see what happens. For now, we can just p...

Re: What are you reading?

I finished Frederick Backman's latest yesterday: Us Against You, the sequel to Beartown. Wept.

Highly, highly recommend both. Books about a small town that revolves around its hockey team and the trials and travails they face as a result. Spoiler alert: it's not really about the hockey.

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

I mentioned this to our craft server on set and she said that her mother was caught in one of the hurricanes that hit down south within the past couple of years and the Red Cross went around handing out MREs to everyone. She (the craft server) has a couple that she keeps in her car in case she gets ...

The Abaisse Performance Rubric

I've always wanted to do a series of posts that describe the various performers in the show over the years to help people pinpoint actors that they think they'll like and boots that contain these performers so that they can experience them. So, looking for "rating" suggestions we can use t...

Re: Anna Karenina

The National Ballet of Canada has a new production of Anna Karenina starting this month with choreography by John Neumeier but they've set it in modern day so WHO EVEN CARES.

Re: This or That?

Ooh, that's a toughie. At first I said Sondheim and was like "I think I like more from his body of work than Sir Andrew" but then I remembered Sunday in the Park with George. And Bounce/Road Show. And Pacific Overtures . So, Sir Andrew it is! Listen to Someone in a Tree from Pacific Overtu...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

I'm really surprised the Russians aren't slipping vodka into theirs. Fortification, you know?

So in your experience, have combat rations developed for the better since you served?

We should start a thread, though my German's not far beyond the basic grammar structures yet!

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Oooh, very cool. In Canada, we call them IMPs: individual meal pack. Very Canadian in that there's even a poutine one. Gross.

What gets me is that three meals = 3600 calories which is SO MANY. Active military service is a good workout.

I know you can order some from here: https://mremountain.com/

Re: Show your Les Miz collection!

I haven't added anything in at least a year. I started to feel guilty about exactly that. There are a solid handful that get regular play via my iPod, but there are many that I have never listened to and likely never will. Particularly 2007s of which I have tons, all with the same cast and little va...

Re: New book about Les Misérables

I tried my hardest to read this book recently but I found myself fact-checking every other sentence and it completely killed it as an enjoyable experience.

Re: The Phantom of the Opera

Looks like Ali Ewoldt is going to be playing her last performance as Christine in a couple weeks (November 17.) I wish I had paid more attention, I would have liked to have gone and seen her (especially against Jay Armstrong Johnson) but I sort of took for granted how quickly time was passing. Kaley...
