end of WWII my dad took me to the Orpheum Theater, where we
saw a live vaudeville show, listened to the great organ and saw a Marx Bros.
film. Yes, they were still doing that. I laughed so hard I couldn't stop and
was literally rolling in the aisle. Dad had to pick me up, put me in my seat
and calm me down. I've never forgotten that or the monumental beauty of the
theater. Only the Million Dollar on 3rd and Broadway compared. Click on
the URL for more on the theater and it's great history.
I've sent a lot on tonight's show, with one exception; tickets and seating.
About 3/4 of the auditorium are now reserved, but if all were, I'd still
count on seating without one. At the AG's big shows in Royce Hall, 2008, all
1868 seats were sold or comped, one week before the events, with Tix from
students $36 to reg's at $56. Well over 100 waiting outside got in,
because of no-shows. Here, it's free, with no money down. Count on sitting
in a magnificent venue for a superb show, performed by our kids.
Yesterday's quarters and semis were phenomenal in quality, range, spirit and
Tonight's finals will be amazing . 'Oh, what a wonderful world it could
be...' (a song)
