  • I don't think I've ever watched more than a few minutes of the Tony Awards, but I did last night and really enjoyed it. And, yes, that opening was incredible. You're right; it makes you want to be in New York watching a show. The play with Tom Hanks (playing a newspaperman) looks really good.

  • I've heard he stumbles a bit with the exact lines but has the stage presence to pull it off and the audiences loves it.

    By the time you get there, that will probably all be gone, but it would not bother me either way. It just shows how great they are to stumble and recover. Makes me feel better for my miscues.

  • I barely recognised anything watching the Tonys the other night, but enjoyed the show...We use to have a local group called the Bedford Players when I was a teen...I was in several plays and really enjoyed it...I think the only thing locally is Hee Haw, and on occasion the Fly has a play I think....we actually have some pretty good talent around our little town...I was close to Broadway once in a taxi...if it was not so expensive I would love to see a play at TPAC....here is a link to what to see and go to in and around Nashville in June...the International Puppet Festival might be fun...scroll to see all on this page there is a lot... http://www.nowplayingnashville.com/categories/index/2/0

  • Thanks for the link. I was sorry to hear about the financial troubles of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

  • I was real sad to hear about the symphony loosing that building too...they will continue I'm sure in a different place, and it should ease the financial burden on them as well...could be just what they needed a blessing in disguise...the building they were in is totally amazing...built ages ago...whom ever gets it sure will have a gem...hope they do something for the public in it...sure is grand and maybe historical to have.

    They haven't lost it yet. There's some speculation that they will file for bankruptcy, which would put off the foreclosure sale and give them more time to work out a settlement, raise support, what have you.
  • Steve, I haven't seen nor heard 'cats' mentioned in some time.

    Linda Balgord who was the last Grizabella was in my daughters graduation class. Her mom and I attend the same church.

    Several years ago Linda was visiting for Christmas. She and her family sat behind me at Christmas Eve candle light. That voice was unbelievable.

    Please don't misunderstand, I do not know Linda

    nor do I remember her from her class. But one thing for sure, she has one precious mom !!!
