Obviously I have too much time on my hands, for I think I shall call about whatever's available at that 250 level and just suck it up. :S

SHOW-ONLY TICKETS:
$150 $250 $500


Of course, December is up in the air, and January looks a bit more certain.
I'm dying of repressed squee's here. Finally, the possibility of hearing Ms K sing The Millers Son on this side of the continent (she'd previously played Petra in the Seattle 5th Avenue Theatre production). Oh! Oh! Oh! :DDDDDDDD

I finally managed to assemble my 320kbps file of ALNM (with Dame Judi Dench) - so the file size is now almost twice the size of the original zip file.

Snag, don't snag... I think this is the final part of what I have in terms of ALNM recordings unless someone has a yen of the Original London Cast? :)

Perpetual anticipation is good for the soul but it's bad for the heart...

Sondheim as the Waltz King... his most famous piece for 3/4 time - A Little Night Music. I found a copy of The 1996 (London) Royal National Theatre recording with Dame Judi Dench so I'm more than pleased to be able to share it (along with some other recordings of A Little Night Music) with all y'all. :)

ETA: *sigh* One of my favourite scenes: A Weekend in the Country isn't in the 1996 RNT recording (wasn't part of the original file)... and since I've got four versions of ALNM playing, I didn't notice the lack... my bad and my apologies.

ETA 2: Aha! http://www.sendspace.com/file/6ks68l (12 A Weekend in the Country) I will be revising the file and create a new link (which also includes Dench's CD cover)

Send in the clowns )
So... I was rambling on about Sondheim's A Little Night Music and how Emily Skinner and Alice Ripley did a great version of Every Day A Little Death in their concert...
