Getting Ready For The Big Day

Turkey Day that is...

I've been pulling 12 hour days over the past couple of weeks preparing for The Holiday Concert. It's almost midnight and I'm just finishing up the days work.  

I picked some of the songs today: definitely 'Oh Holy Night' and 'Believe.'  I'm also going over the songs that you all suggested.  So cast your votes now cause I'm starting in on the program. 

Don't forget to get your tickets soon: Click Me

By the by, there was a little glitch in some of the artwork that went out.  It lists a show on January 1st and that's incorrect. There is no show on 1/1 but there is a show on January 2nd. Sorry about that.  

We might be getting some cool new art work soon with poster and all the works.

I love producing stuff but it's a ton of work...then again...I love work so I'm in heaven.  Good thing for me is that most of the work I did today was on the computer and the phone so I could stay home with the baby.

I can't believe how amazing she is.  The smiles, the cooing, the farts (oh my god).  Dana and I actually get startled sometimes because they sort of come out of nowhere, and they're loud.

We laugh and then the baby laughs at us laughing.  I love it. 

With all of the love and life we had some sad news on Broadway today, Gerald Schoenfeld of the Shubert Organization passed away today.  He was/is an icon in our business.  He represented what Broadway used to be and was instrumental in many of the biggest shows.  He was 84.  His legacy will live on, however and what a legacy it is.  Hats off, lights dimmed.  He will be missed.

I still think 'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen' would sound fantastic with your warm baritone voice. Perhaps 'I'll Be Home For Christmas'.

Oh, and Happy Birthday...since I'm spending my birthday at the show haha.

"I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas" and (though it's more of a winter theme) "Baby It's Cold Outside" if you find someone for the duet. I'm just glad you're doing "O Holy Night". :)

I hope you have a beautiful Thanksgiving full of warmth, good food, and good family.

Reading about the baby's laughing at you and Dana's laughter made me smile. It's the best when they just bust out in hysterics like that.

I can't wait for the concert. I'll see you soon! Enjoy another busy day!

James,
Will there be a CD recorded similar to "Broadway In Concert" for those who may not be able to make the show?

I am so happy I am going to the show X-mas Eve with 2 friends. I can't think of a better way to spend the holiday.
I love hearing about Hudson, she must be growing more and more each day. Treasure your time with her. Will you post a picture of her?

I have always loved Carol of the Bells.....

It would be tricky...but if you could get a special guest or guests to sing Carol of the Bells with.......that would be mesmerizing...

but I know you will pick out a great program.

I can't wait! And good job on this last minute concert planning. Very impressive.
