This gal digs a host of things, but here are some topics that are sure to get her talking:
– Sondheim receives the Lifetime Achievement Award before he’s “finished creating.” Discuss.
– How much does Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians rock your world?
– Should a Broadway show ever have a budget in excess of $50 million? Does more money mean better art?
California-based, music-obsessed, in love with life. I believe in the power of performance and the beauty of life’s idiosyncrasies. I think that passion is the most vital ingredient in a good show and that people should support and keep the arts alive.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m a theatre girl, too…thought mostly “retired” except for teaching. Glad to find your blog…I think we’re on the same page about a lot of things.

Thank you for visiting and liking on the post on my blog. http://aljonpartz.wordpress.com/2012/01/06/choosing-real-friends/
I have just followed you… hope to see you more often on my blog soon…
thanks for your comment about my post “I’m a great great gggg Grandmother of Louis XIV” on my blog http://alifeinessexcounty.wordpress.com — good to find your blog too .. so many of these stories I’m discovering and writing about would make great theatre!
Hi there, thanks for stopping by my place earlier 🙂
I’ll have a look around yours, so far I like what I see 😉
Hope to see you again soon, K.
It’s a very long time since I was involved in theatre myself (and not necessarily at a very high level *then*!), but the wealth in theatre life is immeasurable, and I’m married to a performer (musician) so am still deeply enamored of the backstage-onstage life and, far more than that, the people who bring it all into being. I’ll look forward to wandering around here to see what I can learn from you. Cheers!
Thank you for stopping by for a visit..Hope to see you again!
Hey there, thank you for your appreciation of the “Art Power” post; I am glad you stumbled upon it, pleased to meet you! “Does more money mean better art?” this is a VERY good question, and it has inspired much thought for me, it is something I have pondered for some time. Starting up a theatre company on very little/virtually no budget does limit you in terms of the physical elements like the costumes, props, venue ect but it does not daunt me. I don’t believe it will affect the quality of the words that I write or the performances given by those that portray them to an audience. Passion and energy are what make me deem a piece of performance art as worthy of the term quality. And those qualities live within people, not bits of set or the walls of a building. True, these things enhance the visual quality of a piece, but in regards to quality of performance I believe that as long as there are those with creativity right down to the fingertips and the toes, we will have quality art. You can’t buy passion and energy. Looking forward to crossing paths with you again, all the best.

Hi there! Thank you for appreciating my Play Reading Challenge. Perhaps, you’d want in on it too? LOL. Since you’re into Theatre as well, perhaps you’d like to read and review a new play? Unless you’re not into it of course. In any case, many many thanks again 🙂
Yep, without passion we probably wouldn’t have the arts. I also think passion is the vital ingredient to life. Imagine if we all followed our passion. Thanks for a great blog 🙂
Thanks for the “like” – appreciate it! Great blog, great material. Keep it up. 🙂
Thanks for liking virtual friday interplay. I signed up for your blog! love it.
Thanks for stopping by my Blog. WOW! Love your photo, Damn Sexy & Cool too! I like alot of wall grafitti. I used to make videos on youtube and I put alot of pics of grafitti set to music in videos. I also liked green-screening and such, but I gave that up and now I’m seeing where a Blog will take me. I hope to get to know you better through your blog, and I’ll definately be looking in on you. Tell you more later,
P.S.- Nice to meet you.
Thanks for dropping by the blog. We are kindred souls as I have spent a lot of years in theatre and have found that all of life’s lessons that i now coach clients on really did come from performing and directing. Chat me up sometime. Stay true to You.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today, reading, and liking one of my posts. I hope you will visit again soon. I usually post three to four new articles a week. I don’t know a whole lot about theatre, but this looks like a wonderful site. Blessings, Connie

So cool. I’ve loved Steve Reich and especially Music for 18 Musicians since the early 80’s and have seen him perform several times. I love avant garde Opera (Pina Bausch) and electronic ambient music. I am excited to know you and thank you for stopping by my blog. So much to talk about. Let’s connect. I will subscribe to your blog. Feel free if you like to subscribe.

Thanks for liking my post on my blog: http://cultivatingourselvestogether.com – because now I am aware of you – thoroughly enjoyed poking around on your site – and love your question – Does more money mean better art? I believe the more we support and inspire our artists, the more creative they become…also agree with your belief that people should support and keep the arts alive. I am reminded of a quote: “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life” Pablo Picasso
Just poking around your site a little bit, and I’m a fan! Keep up the good work, and thanks for visiting me!

It is fascinating to hear the progression of Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians. My favorite type of music, in any genre, is music displaying an evolution of sorts… in which the listener hears the introduction of a new sound emerging into a blend of instruments.
I was unfamiliar with Music for 18 Musicians before discovering it here at your blog. My favorite parts of the video were around 5 minutes (when vocals enter), and near the end when the evolution and assemblage of sound comes to fruition.
Seeing the movie Moonrise Kingdom, I found The Young People’s Guide to The Orchestra Op. 34 interesting to hear – for the same reason – in that the individual sounds can be distinguished, singly at first, then within the whole orchestra. It is a piece that essentially trains the ear of the listener.
Very creative blog. Lots of fun content and I love the titles to your posts. They are very quotable and engaging.
Thanks for visiting my blog and liking some of my posts. I appreciate it ; )
Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Interesting blog you have over here–I adore theater… Going to have to follow you…
You’re totally right about Sondheim. “Being Alive” is one of my all-time favorites.
‘I think that passion is the most vital ingredient in a good show and that people should support and keep the arts alive.’ – agreed!!
Thank you so much for the visit and the like. You have a wonderful site. Keep in touch and we will do the same. See you soon.
“Get involved yourself on things even they do not exist yet…” Art and expression are slowly fading away into the “all free” mindset of this modern ere of internet. I am happy to know that there are still champions of the art out there!
