“First, you must learn to know who -you- are. You must find your own sense of identity, enlarge this sense of self, and learn to see how that knowledge can be put to use in the characters you will portray on stage.”

La cage aux folles: the Broadway musical | Jerry Herman, Jean Poiret

You certainly know the American movie, Birdcage, starring Robin Williams, but did you know it's an adaptation of a French-Italian movie based on a French play written by Jean Poiret?
I grew up watching the French movie, I'll probably never watch the American adaptation, but reading the play, I want to find a video of the original play...
I found it interesting to read the play to see how the movie was adapted ;) It's a very light read!

Last weekend, my company opened Sondheim's #masterpiece Sweeney Todd. It's been so much fun to to spend the last few weeks deep inside this story and its lurid literary history! #Movember #seemoretheatre #seemoreopera

I don‘t read a lot of plays and this one was good, though it was confusing at times. Ultimately, a great reveal at the end.

Writer Stewart Hoag is finally writing again while he lives with his basset hound Lulu in his ex-wife‘s guest cottage so he‘s right there when an actor in the fundraiser put on by ex, Merilee, is murdered between the first and second acts of the play. This is witty and fun and firmly entrenched in the 90s. Full review at https://booknaround.blogspot.com/2019/09/review-man-who-couldnt-miss-by-david.ht...
