Watts sent this to me a little while ago after asking what my favorite musical is* and apparently I broke Ms. Wilson's scale. (But as a large fan of his, the Jason Robert Brown line is pretty damn great.)*Movie: Seven Brides For Seven Brothers (sorry, Linda Holmes), Stage: Assassins.
I think that last one says you are Going to the Lordy.I am so glad.
Wait...does that mean I get to be Ambassador to France?
movie: Seven Brides For Seven Brothersstage: Candide or Cannibal: The Musicalonly know by album: Randy Newman's Faust.You need to work on your list, Mara.
Until President Garfield screws you out of the post, yes.
This made me love Mara Wilson even more than I did already, which I didn't think was possible. Her Ira Glass saga is also pretty great. (starts here but read the two updates after: http://marawilsonwritesstuff.com/an-open-letter-to-ira-glass/)
Everybody's got the right.
My college audition monologue was an edited (by me) version of Booth's scene with Oswald. If you think about it it's pretty one-sided. How long did it take you to realize the opening carousel melody is "Hail to the Chief?" It took me a shockingly long time.
Don't get me started.
On musicals or the writer of the article?
On anything. According to her. ;) (I'm a Sweeney guy.)
Probably the second time I listened to the album, I think.
Better than me . . . ;)
