  1. You guys are just great! So witty, intelligent and thoughtful. I was very happy when you mentioned Imelda in your Podcast. I was lucky enough to see her performance twice for which I flew in all the way from Munich, Germany. What an incredible actress! I was wondering what you guys think of a movie adaption of the Gypsy. Do you think it’s a good idea? And who should play Rose? Patti, Imelda or really Barbra Streisand? Or someone else? My dreamcasting would be Meryl Streep. What are your thoughts? I would be so happy to hear them. Much love from Germany and keep doing what you do! Liebe Grüße!

  2. I enjoyed Dames at Sea though I think it missed the mark on tone and satire and the way she played it I found Eloise Kropp’s character incredibly irritating. Still, fabulous tapping and I’m sad more people aren’t seeing it.

    I really enjoyed Therese Raquin. It did feel long but I loved the staging and Keira Knightley gave a strong performance. Judith Light slayed me in act 2. I do like period pieces but it was surprisingly sexy and I think Keira Knightley was allowed to be odd in a way that she perhaps wants to be but doesn’t get to fully indulge in her film work.

    Sylvia has an amazing cast. I don’t like the play very much but it made for a relatively fun night out. I am not surprised that it hasn’t caught on though.

    I need to go see Allegiance.

    I’m not planning on seeing Chicago again but they do need to fix up the Ambassador.
