Friday night: back to the Fox to see Spencer the company again.
Saturday night: A Christmas Story at CBC High School, with three of my private voice students in the show.
Sunday afternoon: Webster University’s annual holiday concert, A Gift to the City, at Christ Church Cathedral.
Rest in peace, Jim Nabors.
You were part of my childhood, as Gomer Pyle.
I remember watching television as your show was in re-runs after school. I was perhaps 10 when the “Impossible Dream” episode played.
And for years I’ve used this video clip in classes and in voice lessons.
Today, I cry again. Your rendition of “The Impossible Dream,” with the USMC Band on stage at Constitution Hall, has never been bettered.
With my youngest voice student, Greta, after Hansel and Gretel at Union Avenue Opera last evening. #proudteacher
I am finally caught the Muny Kids show this last week. And I enjoyed seeing three of my voice students in the performance, and also in the main stage for Newsies.
Well, I’ve entered lotteries this morning for tickets to
- Sweeney Todd
- Natasha, Pierre, etc.
We will see what happens.
Intermission at DEAR EVAN HANSEN.
The show is everything it is purported to be. And Ben Platt is an act of god.
