Currently it is 8° here, which is by far the warmest it's been in two days. The dog does not like to go out in this weather. She has learned that if she poops quickly, the walk can be over quickly.

It is COLD in Texas this weekend!  I guess it is cold everywhere.  We may even get some snow tonight.  Currently, we are around 18 degrees with a "real feel" of 4.  Brrrrrr.

Delightful! :)  Thanks for posting this, Kathy.

Yes, it was between the Off-Broadway and Broadway runs of Fun Home, and Malone was excellent in a very good production. The Unsinkable Molly Brown is a show where the lead character needs to be great, otherwise it can be painful. Malone was great at capturing the free-spritedness of the character. I remember she came out for the talkback in her Broncos jersey.

The recording has been confirmed, though still without a release date more specific than "spring".

BWW's announcement includes this 30-second video clip:



On a tangent, HWA's David Hyde Pierce (delightful as always) will be back on Broadway next season, playing Major General Stanley in what sounds like an interesting new adaptation of The Pirates of Penzance co-starring Ramin Karimloo as the Pirate King.  (Tangent on tangent: last year a YouTuber posted the full pro-shot 1980 Shakespeare in the Park production with Kline, Ronstadt, Rose etc., on which the 1983 film -- adding Lansbury for good measure -- was based).

Double dang, I missed it too.   ???

How was Malone in TUMB, Kathy?  I remember hearing about that -- it was between FH's Public and Broadway runs, no? or sometime around then? -- and the contrast between these two biographical characters, Alison and Molly, sounded intriguing.

She actually reprised the latter role here at The Transport Group just before the pandemic shutdown, but I missed that as well.

Finally...

BWW:  Final Sondheim Musical  Here We Are  Teases Cast Recording

No release date given, but a studio photo, posted on the show's IG account yesterday, implies that the recording itself is done or at least underway.

:) :) :)


In other HWA-related news, today I won the show's lottery again, but was unfortunately unable to claim the tickets in time because I was in a movie theater with my phone off all afternoon, watching an impromptu double feature of The Color Purple and Wonka (a rather purple-themed moviegoing day, as a friend observed, though it turns out they've shifted Timothée Chalamet's younger Wonka more toward burgundy).  I hope whoever did end up getting those HWA tickets enjoyed the show more than I enjoyed the movies (meh:  I didn't not enjoy them, they were okay, but the whole outing was more an excuse to see my friend for the first time in several months.  Ironically, if I'd taken a raincheck on the movies and thus been able to respond to TodayTix today, I might have ended up seeing him very soon anyway -- at HWA: coincidentally, he happens to be seeing tomorrow's matinée).
