Sometimes when I close my eyes, I can't see! LOL!
A JOURNEY OF SONG AND DANCE
I chose this song for this round as it reminds me of my time when I use to tread the boards in the theatre...I so loved my time back then...Learning the dances, the script, the auditions...and first night nerves...There is nothing more exhilarating than getting ready for a show...putting on the make-up...costumes and then coming out on stage under the lights... singing and acting in front of an audience in a full theartre... Each year we did different shows...and it was great ...I made lots of friends...and back stage there was lots of cameraderie....we all supported each other...and gave each other encouragement as well as praise...This song reminds me of a musical show I starred in Follies...a Sondheim Production... Hope you enjoy my rendiiton...Everytime I hear this song I come alive yes indeedy!!!
Follies is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by James Goldman. The story concerns a reunion in a crumbling Broadway theatre, scheduled for demolition, of the past performers of the "Weismann's Follies", a musical revue (based on the Ziegfeld Follies), that played in that theatre between the World Wars. It focuses on two couples, Buddy and Sally Durant Plummer and Benjamin and Phyllis Rogers Stone, who are attending the reunion. Sally and Phyllis were showgirls in the Follies. Both couples are deeply unhappy with their marriages. Buddy, a traveling salesman, is having an affair with a girl on the road; Sally is still as much in love with Ben as she was years ago; and Ben is so self-absorbed that Phyllis feels emotionally abandoned. Several of the former showgirls perform their old numbers, sometimes accompanied by the ghosts of their former selves. The musical numbers in the show have been interpreted as pastiches of the styles of the leading Broadway composers of the 1920s ands '30s, and sometimes as parodies of specific songs.
The Broadway production opened on April 4, 1971, directed by Harold Prince and Michael Bennett, and with choreography by Bennett. The musical was nominated for eleven Tony Awards and won seven. The original production, the most costly performed on Broadway to that date, ran for over 500 performances but ultimately lost its entire investment. The musical has had a number of major revivals, and several of its songs have become standards, including "Broadway Baby", "I'm Still Here", "Too Many Mornings", "Could I Leave You?", and "Losing My Mind".

Wise men speak because they have something to say, fools because they have to say something. PLATO
Exciting life for sure Bev. I was a "backstage baby"...a Dresser for an amazing production of My Fair Lady starring Maximillian Schell and Yvonne Crist in 1994 through Austria and Germany...and then with Sunset BLVD (In German at a purpose-built theater near Wiesbaden, for the big sets) with Andrew Lloyd Webber's company for a year... I just watched rehearsals while my ex played violin in the orchestra pit...and once on stage. I would NEVER be ON STAGE like you, PERFORMING. But I can see why YOU COULD!! Another excellent rendition...with Personality and Professional quality!!
Bev a great choice here. A beautiful story. Very rewarding. A super vocal performance. I enjoyed my listen.
Totally inspiring to listen to you sing this genre of music. Every note and lyric is special in my eyes. Loving this very much! So professional and why do I think of Judy Garland as I am listening.
