I think Gregg is keeping it for this reading as he's playing 'Faria' the prisoner of The Chateau D'If who teaches 'Dantes' everything that he uses in his new life.
Crusty because it was so dry in the rehearsal space today. I must have gone through two gallons of water.
The music is big and beautiful and did I mention big? Well it's big. By big I not only mean there is a ton of it but I mean big as in sweeping and sincerely moving. And of course Frank has me singing in the stratosphere as only he can get me to sing.
I've been tired to say the least...haven't really had any down time since Tale opened (and closed) and that can be taxing. But I'm always inspired with new work, especially work that has a deep meaning to it.
Holiday songs...I do a Holiday concert every year in Los Angeles at the NOHO Arts Centre www.nohoace.com It's been great fun. I sang a bunch of tunes "Believe" and "Oh Holy Night" which was my mother's favorite (and one of mine as well).
I'm a huge sucker for Holiday music and yes, I'll confess I was listening to it on my iPod on my way to rehearsal today. There's nothing like Bing or Nat on a crispy morning.
I know, I know, the "official" Holiday Music start date is after Thanksgiving...but I just can't help myself. It always makes me happy.
Anyone know "Aspen Glow"?
