The Roundabout

There was a reading of Twelve Angry Men tonight done by The Roundabout. David Morse played the Henry Fonda part. Philip Bosco played the Lee J. Cobb part. The Twelve were all men; however, not all of them were angry.

The Fields of Ambrosia

Coincidentally, I have been listening to The Fields of Ambrosia, a musical about an executioner. The title song is, well, heavenly.

Brandy hip-hops to see wizard in Fox TV's 'O.Z.'

Brandy hip-hops to see wizard in Fox TV's 'O.Z.'
"In the new take on the "Oz" story, Dorothy will be a successful but lonely hip-hop musical producer in Los Angeles. After a massive earthquake, she and her sidekick Toto find themselves in a strange, wondrous land called the Big O.Z."
Obviously, this is just in the talking stages. But a cast that includes Little Richard (as the Wizard!), Busta Rhymes and Queen Latifah? Bring it on, baby.

Houdini

So I went to a reading for the new musical, Houdini, by Michael Martin and Brian Bazala. I think it has a lot of potential - if you can get over the fact that most people have had enough Houdini to last a lifetime after Ragtime. The music was very good, and I'd love to hear more of the book (it was edited for the reading). Watching the actors (including the talented Kristoffer Lowe in the ensemble, who looks just like Harry Houdini!) reminded me of the big difference between those singers who are classically trained - as was the actor singing Arthur Conan Doyle, whose name I can't recall - and those who need a mic to amplify their voice into something listenable - as was the lead, whose name I CAN recall. Overall, I really enjoyed it and wish them all luck for the future.

1010 WINS

And yours truly was interviewed by 1010 WINS radio at intermission, go listen for my words of wisdom ("Yes, I've seen the show about 20 times in the past 10 years, sure I'll miss it, but most shows are lucky to run for only a year or two. Maybe they can bring in Martin Guerre now, blah blah blah.")

See? "The closing [of Miss Saigon] will free up the Broadway Theatre at 53rd Street and Broadway -- one of the most desirable of the musical-sized theatres in the Times Square area. Mackintosh blamed a lack of such theatres for not bringing Bou

There is a strange shortage of Caffeine Free Diet Coke at all the stores in my neighborhood.

*I* didn't watch the Superbowl. I don't follow basketball. :)

All I have to say is that I really hope Catherine was kidding about Martin Guerre.

I've got to tell you, that Superbowl was the least exciting thing I've seen in years. The commercials didn't even do it for me - sorry Robbie.

However, Miss Saigon today was pretty exciting. I must've run into twelve people there that I knew. Cameron came onstage at the end, with Claude-Michel Schonberg, to thank the cast, crew and fans - and the twelve musicians in the pit who've been with the show since the beginning. And for those who missed the show, never fear. Cameron says they're putting the helicopter in mothballs - and the show will be back! Perhaps they can revive it in ten years or so... if they can do it with 42nd Street...
