  2. Farewell, Les Mis. You’ve been a great keyboard book, and I hope we can meet again in the near future. Try to remember the good times we had. I’ll always be fond of your Biting Clavinet. #lesmis #lesmiserables #theatre #musical

  4. Let’s Start a Kickstarter!

    Say one wanted to set up a Kickstarter to get John Wilson & his orchestra to record the complete “The Music Man” score - original Don Walker, et al, orchestrations; full Laurence Rosenthal dance music, no drum set brushes on “Rock Island” like in the revival recording - how would one go about that?

    Because this needs to happen, even if only because of the “Marian the Librarian” dance music & the 4 clarinet parts that happen throughout.

    It’s seriously one of the best Golden Era musicals. I don’t care what anyone else says.

  6. Happy 37th anniversary to A Chorus Line’s Broadway opening! I don’t think I’ll ever tire of this show.

  7. [title of show] might play the West End →

    This is great news. I’ve known about this for a while. But there’s a big part of me that really really does not want this to happen, since Larry Pressgrove is supposed to come here to direct “Spring Awakening” in the spring, and I’m going to be the Asst. Music Director/accompanist/etc. And if “[title of show]” goes to Lun-dun, then he won’t be coming to Champaign-Urbana.

    I’m torn.

  8. John’s part in this song is going through my head as I’m getting packed for my trip to Yellowstone & Glacier National Parks. (And I think my roommates are singing Jen’s part.)

  9. Beneath my hard cynical exterior is a guy who tears up when a boy gets the chance to pursue his dreams. Set to music.

  10. Just stumbled upon the Last 5 Years demo & the final performance I have in my iTunes. Resisting the urge to stay up late listening to them all. I love that show, and have some of the best memories from the few times I’ve played it.
