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?

The music alone is worth returning for, JMO Bord.

Actually you did say you needed to know celebrity gossip to fit in at parties.

To "fit in"? Please quote.

Our high school got permission to perform Phantom of the Opera a couple years ago.  My family and I all saw it and it was absolutely breath taking!  The performers were like professionals and they could really belt out those numbers. 

DD2 is my performer, She's in dance and she performs in school plays too.

I would rather stab myself in the head with a fork than sit through Phantom and I say this as the close personal friend of someone who played the phantom for years on Bway.. God almighty I hate that show.   I like Les Miz if they'd get rid of the annoying teenage love triangle and that unfortunate theater brat of  a little boy.

but I'm a Sondheim purist.. the rcent BWAY revival of Follies was shattering.. it literally physically crumpled me.. I couldn't even speak for about 10 blocks til we sat down to meet friends for coffee and cheescake LOL

"When I'm at a party or am a dinner guest, I don't need to bring up dead Mousekateers to make conversation." --------------- LOL, there is that. I just came back from dinner and poor Annette was not a topic of conversation. We were talking about relations with the Kurds in the 60s in Iraq, among other things. The kids came with us for the first 20 minutes, so there was also the requisite enquiries about how college was going and how their studies were going. Some horror was expressed all around that George Papandreou is a guest lecturer at Columbia at the moment, and then the kids went off to see dd's friends (spring break).

Well, Spring, we got into an argument years ago about whether my older son was better educated than you are. And now I think both of them are. They might not know which celebrity is divorcing which other celebrity, but can talk reasonably well about one of the seminal novels of the 19th century.

I will also cop to being a big Stephen Schwartz fan.. loved Wicked-- cried openly... which if you know me is VERY rare..I'm also a big Kander and Ebb fan.. Cabaret and Chicago are faves... the only Andrew Lloyd WEbbers I love are Evita (mostly b/c it was the single best summer stock experience I ever had) and Superstar.. but nothing trumps Sondheim..

Well, if their kids are in their 30s, like mine and my DIL are, they would know her, but I can't imagine why anyone with kids NOW would know her.  Her last show as a live actress (vs a cartoon voice) on Nickelodeon was in 2002.

"Nah....that is not something I would have ran to, to see. It has been off Broadway for awhile and it was ..." --------------- 1. I think bord meant that it was a bit baffling that you didn't know the book. 2. As for the musical, you live in NY for goodness sake. I can't abide musicals, but even I knew about this one and that was back when I was married to my ex. His vocal coach was totally into it.
