No day but today... only until June.

I'm sort of shocked right now! I just saw the news that Rent is closing on Broadway in June. In retrospect I had begun to regret not seeing it when I was there with mom last August, what was I thinking not going to see Adam and Anthony in the roles they originated? Now I am seriously kicking myself, I never did see it in its home theater, the Nederlander. Drat, drat, drat!!! The story of how this show made it to Broadway is truly amazing and terribly sad. Even though the show has resorted to stunt casting for years now, I'm still surprisingly saddened to hear it will be shutting down. Wow.

This reminds me of a favorite video of mine though. Video of Jonathon Larson singing his song Sunday. Which, if you are a true nerd like me, you will recognize as a spoof. I think only SB will get it, and I'm not sure he actually reads this, maybe my sister?

I realize I'm not the SB you were mentioning, but I get it. Sunday in the Park with George... See 10 years with a musical nut has taught me something! I want to get back to blogging, but can't find the time (plus my life is boring)!

Hah! Steph claims to have gotten it before I did. Although, as she mentions, she wouldn't have gotten it at all if not for my bad influence.

I've never seen that song before but it makes sense given his Sondheim influences.

I get it! Aw, I swear I did before reading the other comments.... I wish I had a chance to see the show there, with those guys, too! SIGH...I miss going to theater so much...
