April 5, 1975 Minnie Ripperton’s Lovin’ You hits #1!
Happy Birthday to my brother in law, Pete!
Minnie Ripperton sang so pretty and so high there was no way I could try to sing Lovin’ You the way she did and hit the notes she did.
I heard quite a bit of high notes today, auditioning about 50 sopranos for the Hello Dolly tour. My ears are still ringing from the heights.
On the other hand, its great to see so many talented women coming out and dressing to the nines for a 16 bar audition! And now they’ll come back 3 more times for dance, call backs and final callbacks. Pros, every one of them.
Stingers are gigging up in the Bronx Botanical Gardens tomorrow night. It should be a beautiful night for a wedding and I’m looking forward to it. I love the Botanical Gardens and when we’re there I like to walk around and take in the sights.
How do you like my red jacket? So far, during these past 363 days I’ve worn a different shirt in each video. Yep. Well today I decided to wear a jacket that’s hanging in our costume closet. The multi-talented Jason Bowen wore it in our readings of Winner Take All before we brought the show to the Fringe Festival. It was the Devil’s jacket. I didn’t feel evil wearing it, though, just kind of red.
