The week (or more) in review

Last Saturday, Me and the godkids (Wesley and misstsapinay) went to see Camelot - starring Michael York & Rachel York (no relation that I could find) at American Musical Theatre of San Jose. It was a good show and we all enjoyed it. The kids are content with the birthday/christmas go see a show prezzie, so we'll continue the tradition. Wonder what they'll pick this year?

AMTSJ's new season includes Beauty & the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors, Guys & Dolls and Cabaret. There was no serious poinging over any of them, so we'll see what else is out there.

Last Monday, herefox and I went Theatreworks' annual announcement party for their next season's shows.
What's on the horizon?
  • The Elephant Man
  • Theophilus North (adapted from Thorton Wilder's book)
  • Emma - new musical based on Jane Austen's book - from the same people who did Jane Eyre
  • Golda's Balcony - based on the life of Golda Meir
  • Shakespeare's Twelfth Night - a sort of musical set in the 60's in San Francisco - flower children and all. Probably no shipwreck for Viola, more likely a bus crash
  • Wendy Wasserstein's Third
  • Southern Comforts
  • Caroline, or Change


Did taxes on Sunday, submitted them Wednesday. Go Me!

Love Heroes!!! NCC1701 - had to go back and watch the episode just for the license plate. (the joys of streaming video). Totally surprised at who's Claire's biological father.

Very glad that auditions are finally over for AI.

Still hooked on Weffriddles. It's all sillermoon's fault.

Stuck on 1-22. I know what the symbols mean, but I can't figure out the correct answer. It's making me nuts. 1-21 was crazy too. I had no ideas what the "gangsta" hand signs meant. Vulcan salute - yes. The other two? Frustrating.

And then there was HOMEWORK!!!! *sigh*

Aggh! You were at the same place, same time as my bestest friend in ta world, and neither of you knew it!!

Gloria wants me to come back and visit to see either Emma or 12th Night - of the two, I'd rather see Emma, since I've DONE 12th night and can imagine the rest.

On the other list - if you haven't seen B&tB, GO!! Amazing costumes and set, the score has been augmented in some lovely ways, the effects are great (several "firsts" in on-stage effects) and the cast has always been wonderful. I have seen it twice and would go ten times more. As a caveat - the first touring version, at the LA Music Center, was stunning. When it came back later and we saw it at Orange County Performing Arts (smaller budget, probably), it was a tad scaled back in the sets and grandeur, but if I hadn't seen the first version to compare it to, I doubt I would have noticed.

I can't wait to see what kind of theater there is in Reading and Philadelphia!

Emma could be an interesting musical, though it'd probably have to be done as a comedy. Persuasion would probably make a good dramatic musical though. :)
