1. Do you keep up with celebrity news (watch it on TV, read it online, read newspaper or magazines)?

2. What are you wearing today?

3. College-did you go? Did you stay home, go away? Did/does/will your children stay home or go away?

yes we do all have different tastes... I like to bring 40 years of theater experience to the table when I watch a show and there are somethings I just joyously love (like Wicked ) things that inspire me (LIke the recent production of Glass Menagerie I saw with Cherry Jones and Zachary Quinto which reminded me why i wanted to be an actor in the first place) and things that just shatter me emotionally (like the Broadway revival of Follies)  ... but we all love different things and that's what makes the world so interesting and often so very fun... I wouldn't denigrate someone else's tastes.. if you loved the 25th concer though I would urge you to seek out the 10th on dvd... just for the BEST Valjean/Javert pairing of Colm Wilkinson and Philip (oh damn forget his last name) .. who I think was probably the best Javert of the whole lot of them including Terrance Mann... I don't enjoy the Marius in that version though - Michael Ball -- too effeminate for my tastes..PBS Great performances has had some great Broadway shows tha tare out on DVD and we enjoy watchign those form time to time , especialy Into the Woods .. our fave..

I know, Amazing isn't it? It's good emails can be traced to locations... That's a nice start for an attorney.

Don't defriend me, Bea, but I can't stand Glass Menagerie. I find the characters depressing. I just want to slap them or do spine transplants on them or SOMETHING. I always find myself wondering why I am supposed to care what happens o these pathetic people.

So odd. Very easy to trace back who is emailing you too.

LOL.. I think the difference for me with "Menagerie" is that I have always watched it as an actor longing to play Amanda -- but this production for the FIRST time I really understood Tom... finally saw Tennessee Williams in him.. quinto was marvelous.. and the staging was brilliant.. Laura literally entered through the cushions of the couch and dissappeared through there at the end... but Cherry Jones.. my God she was towering in her brilliance... what she did vocally still has me inspired... I hope it moves to Broadway .. .but seeing it from the 3rd row at ART is somethign I will never ever forget.  and the scenes with amanda begging Laura not to have her panic attack "right now? why now?'  hit kind of close to home.. LOL

<<Nope the newest and AGAIN, I NEVER said I didn't KNOW it existed until 2012. I knew for many, many years and said I did not see it on Broadway but would like to in the future since it is coming back next year. >>

Well honestly, it doesn't seem like you know a whole lot about it, based on your posts here and then there is what bord said as well.  I'm wondering though, why gossip is more important to know than significant culture events that span decades (and last for centuries) in being well rounded.  Why is gossip important to be well rounded and not literature?

Well you assumed wrong.

I never said gossip is more important than literature to be well rounded. Another assumption.
