My canceled classes :P and some Kevin tidbits...  
I called the local CC this morning to find out what the deal was with my web design class this past weekend and they told me that because enrollment was low, they canceled the classes altogether. :( Not an encouraging sign... :P They asked me if I wanted to defer my payment for the next session, but it's in October on Tuesday nights and I didn't know if it'd be a good idea to commit to something so far in advance. :P So I guess no web design classes right now for me...though I'll probably try to look more into the classes that kananigirl was talking about.

Read a message on a theatre message board that said that poor Kevin blew out his own mic last night... Can you believe it? His voice was so powerful that it crapped out the mic! The poor thing had to belt the last few notes of his solo sans the mic, but really - it's kind of impressive in a way. ;) Just proves what a powerful voice he has. :)

Found several things, including a review of his performance in the LA Times:

"Kevin Earley, a favorite romantic lead in Los Angeles, delivered in a comically nerdy turn as Eliza's secondary love interest, snorting through his dialogue scenes before turning his lustrous voice to "On the Street Where You Live," which he delivered with such power that he set the Bowl's amplification system buzzing and crackling."

AND I found his new headshot on the Hollywood Bowl site (which is a HUGE deal because the man absolutely hates taking photos):

Marina and Bobbie both commented on how Kevin did an endearing snort/giggle thing throughout the show that had the audience rolling. Leave it to Kevin to come up with a little extra something to make his character stand out and be remembered. :) It obviously worked because though he only had a supporting role, every review I saw had a line on John Lithgow, a line on Melissa Errico's beautiful voice, maybe two lines on Roger Daltrey, but a whole paragraph on Kevin. :) I'm just so happy for him! :)

Sorry to hear about the class being canceled all together.

Thanks, Carrie. :) I was pretty disappointed at first, but maybe this is a sign that there are classes that are more suited to me out there. :) Hopefully I'll be able to take a class of some sort soon. :)

Woah...the classes got gonged? That bites! I can't believe that, gee I was hoping to hear how good the classes where. Oh well, the CTA ones sound good. I'm hoping to make time and be able to go in the Fall. If you go ahead of me, you can let me know if it's worth the money.

Was Melissa Errico in My Fair Lady? I love her voice, I was checking out her cd in Borders the other day.

Yeah, they canceled it... :P Looking at the CTA ones, but I think I'm going to have to save up for those. :P I think they sound mored interesting than the LCC ones do, though so I don't mind spending the extra money.

Melissa Errico was in "My Fair Lady" - I'm so sad that I didn't get to see it! :( They've been getting raves - and the cast was pretty stellar. :)

I would probably take the refund and then just see if you want to sign up for the class later on in the year.

That is something about Kevin's voice. Wow!

That's probably what I'll end up doing. I still have some time to think about it. In September if I still feel like going back, at least that's an option. Kind of scary that low enrollment was what canceled the class, though. :P

Isn't that cool about Kevin's voice? I always knew it was beautiful and powerful, but GEE! :D

Sorry to re-send this - but I just noticed a HUGE typo in my last reply... Sorry! :P

I'm sorry to hear that they canceled the classes and I hope that you perhaps still feel like to take it in October. That about Kevin's voice sounds impressing. I'm glad to see you so happy for and about him. :)

Thanks, Sabine. :) And I agree that it's pretty impressive about Kevin blowing out his mic... Poor guy will be hearing about it for a long time to come, I think. ;)

get your money back...you gave those folks a chance.Look more into the classes that kananigirl was talking about.
Sounds like your friend Kevin puts on quite the show! and is an incredible actor!
Hope you are doing well, sweetpea blossom!

Thanks, Katie. :) I may just do that and save up my money for those other classes (which are 4 times as expensive, but look worth it). :)

And Kevin is incredible! Acting, singing - the man can do it all - just why he's not back on Broadway, I just don't know. :)

Hope all is well with you, Katie! :) I'm so happy your man is coming home soon! *big hugs* to you! :)
