Mmmmm. Johnny as Sweeney....

I've often said that i've never seen any other Sweeney who capture the sexiness that the original, Len Cariou, did.

I do believe Johnny may mop the floor with Len on that particular character attribute. Sorry, Len.

I'm not sure why he has to have hair like Barbara Bel Geddes from Dallas, it's a bit too finely coiffed for my taste in this photo. But what the hell, I'm still lining up for this movie, how about you?

Hat tip: Alicia Teeter.

Rehearsal pics from FMT's Carousel

A little bird sent me links to all sorts of great info about Foothill Music Theatre's impending production of Rogers & Hammerstein's Carousel.

There is audio, video and photography to be found at this link. There are even links to audio files that must have been used to train folks to get the right accent for the show. I love the one entitled Pronunciation of "EYA". What? I can't just watch a few Pepperidge Farms commercials and copy that guy?

So if you want a MAJOR sneak peek at Carousel, which opens in just a couple of weeks, this is the palce to go.

I'm just going to listen to the hornpipe music!

My fave from "Grease" on to Broadway anyway

Did you watch "Grease: You're the One That I Want", the reality show that cast the two leads in the impending Broadway production of Grease?

Oh, admit it...I know I did!

Anyway, I wasn't happy with the girl who won the role of Sandy...she was kind of blah, in my opinion. I liked the runner up, Ashley Spencer, and as it turns out she'll be making her Broadway debut on the exact same day that Grease starts previews itself...just in a different show.

Ashley will spend 3 months playing Amber Von Tussle in Hairspray...not a bad gig, especially considering that the movie is opening and should drum up more itnerest in the musical.

Wacky, huh...same date!
