I'm seeing the Les Mis
"revival" tonight. Been meaning to abridge that show for a long time. I've made a pledge that from now on, I do at least the first draft of an Abridge the night I see it
, even if I have to stay up really late to get it done. I seem to write these things better when I'm cranky and tired anyway; the Chorus Line one
was written during a 5 hour delayed flight from Chicago.
A couple of interesting things today:
Unfortunately for city-dwellers like me, getting to Papermill from the city is difficult. Getting back is even tougher. Which is a shame since so many NYCers who don't have cars would love seeing a high-quality production of classics like "Carnival", often with Broadway Actors to boot. For city-dwellers, I've always been curious why there wasn't a "Paper Mill Bus". Even at an extra charge.
Would other city-people be more likely to see a PaperMill production if the transportation issue was figured out for them?
