Posters and Street Musicians

The posters came in today.

They look pretty great and I'm glad to get them.

I spent the morning with Tony Walton discussing a new/old project.  He's revamped a Noel Coward piece.  Looks like a ton of fun.

Then in the was back to the studio (after spending some quality time with the family).  Jeremy and I are prepping like mad for the show. We've got the opening set and now we're looking at the order of things.  

On a completely different note, like most New Yorkers, I'm often in the subway traveling around town.  And I'm often amazed at the quality of the street performers plying their trade underground.

I was going to a meeting this evening and listened to this woman sing and play an acoustic guitar.  She was remarkable.  Just standing there.  Then on the way home there was this guy drumming in the Times Square station.  Again...incredible musician.

I said to myself...I want to get all of these amazing people together, put them on a stage and do a show.  I think it would be fascinating. 

I've had so many opportunities in my life, granted, I've worked hard to get them and many didn't come easy.  But I've always wanted to be in a position to help or give back.  I hope that someday I might be able to do just that.

At any rate, be blessed for what we have, be generous to those who have less and extend a hand to those who might need it.  Life is for living.

I think a show of street musicians would be a marvelous idea. I'm also really amazed by the incredible music I've heard on the streets in NYC. To me that music has always been the lifeblood of the city and a really essential part of my expiriences there. Add the magic of stage and theatre to that and wow you'd really be on to something I think

I was in NY two years ago and I could hear those amazing artist you say. They are so talented. I think it is a very good idea to put them together.
