OK so some updates.
I've been so busy over here that I've not really had the time to write a blog...so here it goes.
We've finished recording the CD of Tale and I think it's going to be great. It was three days of massive sessions to get this thing done.
We all traveled to Brighton today to begin serious work on the DVD. This is going to be the interesting thing. We've had to change a bit to make it fit into the format that works best for TV but I think this version will be pretty stellar.
Michael York has come on board to narrate certain sections and there is a little surprise at the end as well. No...Sydney does not get the girl...but it's a cool surprise none-the-less.
The UK cast is pretty great. Simon Thomas is playing Darnay. He was last seen on the West End in "Marguerite." And the great Nigel Richards is playing Stryver.
Brighton, for me, is a breath of fresh air. I spent my summers by the sea and to me, there is nothing like it. It's a great town with a rich history and a wealth of flavors. I'll be inside most of the time we're here but it's still nice to breathe in that fresh air.
One nice thing is that Dana and the baby made the trip with me as well. They spend time seeing friends and family while I spend time whacking away at the script and score.
I can't tell you how wonderful it is to sing this music once more.
And please, don't forget that I have that concert next Saturday night. It's going to be a whirlwind of travel for me I can tell you that.
The concert is a benefit and there is a little reception afterwards so please...come on by and send your friends!
