Re: Coincidences related to Les Mis

A couple of days ago, I was hiking around the massive, historic Albany Rural Cemetery. I was looking for a couple of specific monuments to photograph for my local blog. One of them was the grave of a man who'd survived the Titanic sinking. Next to his, in the same family plot, was a stone with a quo...

Re: Stephen Sondheim!

and I remember the look of horrified amusement on Hugh Panaro's face when I told him that story (after he'd told me a long anecdote about the time Sondheim told him, to "PLEASE SHUT UP!") I don't suppose you remember that long anecdote, do you? Cause i can't think of any reason to want Hu...

Re: Stephen Sondheim!

Definitely some love for Sondheim! When I was very little, but just starting to develop a strong interest in musicals like Annie , Brigadoon , and Camalot , I used to go to the music section of the library and rummage for interesting cast recordings. I would always come across this one album called ...

Re: Cosette, the sequel to Les Misérables

I remember thinking that Scarlett (sequel to Gone With the Wind) was a masterpiece by comparison after reading it. But I haven't read either in a long time, something tells me I'd wonder how I managed back then if I re-read them again. D8 I read Scarlett when it was first released...I remember bein...

Re: Random Idle Speculation

Awww, *Jenn*. That choked me up. My heart goes out to her husband, friends, and family. I've gotten to know her mother and husband pretty well since Jenn passed away. Alex, her husband, was supposed to meet Hugh before "Oliver" ended in Philly, but his flight was canceled by a snow storm....

Re: Coincidences related to Les Mis

I was watching my old, old, old VHS tape of David Bowie's 1983 Serious Moonlight tour about a week ago. Just have to add that I love that video...it was the reason I bought a VCR way back. Anyhow, I let it run right through the credits at the end and startled my dog and housemate with an odd squeak ...

Re: Pictures

In my opinion, one of the ugliest Cosette dresses I've seen...from Arkansas Rep. Don't know the year, but it's Christopher Newell and Jeanine Pacheco. http://img687.imageshack.us/img687/4162/cosette.jpg Some other aspects of the production looked pretty nice, though...including their Javert.

Re: Painting my shoes

I have very little artistic ability, but this reminds me of how my best friend and I would buy Converse high tops and decorate them with quotes in silver and gold Sharpie (he and I both have very nice penmanship). We did two pairs each...one was just random quotes...everything from David Bowie to Sh...

Re: Les Misérables at Papermill Playhouse

I saw that story this morning.

It's close enough that I might be able to catch it, especially if I stay a few days with my godmother in Brooklyn...then it's a short train ride.

Re: Coincidences related to Les Mis

So, since I've been doing a photo blog of my home city, I've been a member of the City Daily Photo project which has a feed of all sorts of daily photo blogs from around the world. It's fun and there's some terrific pictures...and then there was the February 18 entry for the Paris photo blog. http:/...

Re: A Rant About Javert

The idea that people would actually boo an actor during curtain call is awful, especially if it's because of the character. That really irks me! Given the sometimes rabid and mostly unjustified hate for him, I'm rather surprised the "phanbrats" don't boo Raoul during The Phantom of the Op...

Re: Coincidences related to Les Mis

Not quite a coincidence, but random at any rate... Last night, I got sleepy watch Vertigo and went to bed early...too early and didn't sleep well. Finally, I had a dream that I was hanging some laundry in my spooky old brick basement. Except I had a screen...like a cross between a flat-screen TV and...

Re: And in the end....

Because it was a miserable book. You don't know how miserable it was. I read a review recently - I think it may have been on Amazon - in which someone wrote that this would be a good book if the names of all of the characters were changed and it was not presented as a sequel to Les Misérables .
