So, what the heck, you're welcome,
Glad to have you with us.

Producers Want to Move Encores! Finian's Rainbow to Broadway: I was bummed I hadn't a chance to see it during it's run recently. I'd be happy to see it for both the Cheyenne-y goodness and because it holds a special place in my theatrical upbringing: My high school theatre director, Mr. "Duck" Donald, told us at least once per production the story of how he played Og, the Leprechaun, and was violently ill during one performance of the show. So, he had buckets off-stage left and right and would dance across the stage, puke, dance back across the stage, puke, etc.

Thanks, brewergnome, this really brightened my day:

Also, last night I finished Everything Was Possible: The Birth of the Musical Follies a wonderful book by Ted Chapin, current president of the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization, past Production Assistant on the musical, chronicling the entire development cycle of the original production of Hal Prince and Stephen Sondheim's musical Follies. If you have any interest in the musical theatre, Stephen Sondheim, or just want a better understanding of how Broadway has changed from the era of Rodgers & Hammerstein standards through the Prince & Sondheim innovations to the current Lloyd-Webber & Disney marketable commodities, this is the book for you.
