Not bad... Especially for free! :D

In other theatre news, apparently, Santino Fontana has suffered a concussion during a performance of "A View From the Bridge" and will be out of a few performances due to doctor's orders. :( Poor thing!! :( Of course, my MAIN concern is for the poor man's health, but can I just say that I hope he's feeling much better by next weekend? I would really love to see his performance... I feel like such a horrible person for EVEN thinking that... :P

Speaking of NYC, Mom and I leave on Tuesday... and once again I feel like the trip has snuck up on me! It never fails, but work ALWAYS seems to have some kind of major crisis going on right when I'm about to leave. :P I never really leave anything undone or leave big things pending, but I always feel SO guilty for leaving work... and if I don't feel guilty, BIG boss will remedy that for me by constantly adding, "You're leaving me!" in every other sentence for the few days preceding my last day of work. :P

Checked the Billy rotation to see who might possibly be on next week Sunday night. I'd love for my Mom to see either Trent or Alex... but we'll see. I can't imagine having SUCH amazing luck twice in a row. Just thankful that I caught Trent back in September. :)

Finally, I have "Memphis Lives In Me" playing on an infinite loop on iTunes as I'm typing this and I have a question for the folks who have heard the cast recording AND have seen the show. Does Chad ease up on his accent for the cast recording? It sounds like CHAD singing "Memphis Lives In Me" on the cast recording instead of Huey. He's doing the accent in all the other songs - "Music of My Soul," "Crazy Little Huey," etc. But "Memphis Lives In Me," at least on the cast recording, sounds like he's dropped the accent. Anyone else think so?

Hope you're all having a nice weekend!! I'm off to tackle more web work...
Current Mood: workingworking
Current Music: "Memphis Lives In Me" - MEMPHIS

I know that feeling guilty for leaving work. But then, you know, perhaps they just want to tell you how much they appreciate your work but can't really find the right words to express that. I hope you and your Mom will have a wonderful time in NYC! :) Big hugs to you, Sheri!

You're too sweet, Sabine!! ♥!! But I know the real reason is BIG boss wants to make me feel bad because he never takes vacation himself (which I tell him to do!!) :) Thanks for the nice trip wishes!! :)

BTW, I just received your card in the mail! :) Thank you SO MUCH for the beautiful photo!! I loved it!!! HUGS!

Ashamed, I have not listened to the cast recording for Memphis yet. D: I must download it.

But I'm so excited for you to be heading off to NYC! Work can survive without you. I figured that out last year by running off so often. ;)

Haha... it's okay, I was just wondering since Mark told me he hears the accent, but honestly, I don't... And he's never seen the show... :P I was just wondering...

And I'm SO excited about NYC! It feels like SO long since I've been there (when really it hasn't been...) I need my theatre fix! ;)

To me, it sounds like he lets up on the accent for the entire CD, not just Memphis Lives In Me (ha that rhymes). What's funny is as far as I can remember he still has the accent in the show but maybe they didn't want it to be as heavy on the CD? Who knows. I kind of like it better on the CD...it makes his voice less nasaly haha

also, I hope you see Trent again because um...I want to see him again hahahah. I'll live vicariously.

I went back and listened to some of the other tracks and I agree! He does ease up on the accent for most of the songs. I do know that the first time I saw the show I noticed that his accent was REALLY strong... I mean, I had a hard time understanding him sometimes. By the last preview that I saw, either I got used to it, or he eased it up a bit. :)

Kind of a side note, but I LOVE that part in "Crazy Little Huey" on the cast recording where he says, "Oh, here comes trouble... Double trouble!" Ha!

And hoping for Trent!! :) We'll see. :) Thanks!!
there would never be anyone for me but you: theatre: thomasjessnic85 on January 10th, 2010 07:30 pm (UTC)

I hope you get to see Alex in BE! Hopefully the weather won't be TOO cold in NYC but regardless I'm sure you'll have a good time there!

Thanks!! I hope I get to see Alex, too! From his Twitter it sounds like he's on the mend and ready to come back (he had an injury that has kept him out all this time...) But I'd love for my Mom to see Trent, too... She'd love his performance! :)

Thanks SO MUCH!!
