The first is an exhausting trend where reality tv is taking over everything. Don't get me wrong, I am just as hooked on Survivor, Project Runway, Big Brother, Who Wants to be a Superhero, the Amazing Race and so on, as anyone else my be. They are planning a Broadway casting show on NBC this fall where people off the street can audition for Danny and Sandy in a new revival of Grease to be on Broadway. Help us. When the show finally hits the great white way, it will close within weeks.
The second is lots of fun. Joan L. (the bed/bottle lady art teacher from B & B) recently saw the Broadway tour of The 25th Annula Putnim County Spelling Bee in Atlanta at the Alliance theatre. As part of the show, they choose four people to be guest spellers and she was chosen. Of course they give words that are beyond difficult so they can make fun of you, but she said it was a blast. She has a button that says she was a finalist. They also gave her a juice box so as to comfort her loosing. All of us work our rear ends off and the lady who moves the bed and the bottle appears in a Broadyway show? Where's the justice? Ha!
