"The star of the Broadway musical Gypsy singing ‘Everything’s Coming Up Roses’ exactly as she does it in the show — Miss Ethel Merman!”

From Perry Como’s Kraft Music Hall - October 5, 1960, via Youregonnalovetomorrow

my late, great aunt renee told me that she saw the original production of gypsy with merman, and was so struck by her projection without a mic.

i still don’t believe that she saw it.

What's so great about Once? I tried listening to the cast recording but it was just boring

yesterday-is-done-deactivated20:

Listening to the cast recording outside the context of the show does not do the musical justice. It’s not a traditional broadway score, so it can be jarring if that’s what you’re expecting, but in the show it just works.

The thing that struck me about Once is that for once the Actor/Musician conceit didn’t feel at all forced because the characters were all themselves musicians. So it’s actually the content of the show that dictates that form, rather than some obscure directorial vision.

As for the score, the songs have a slightly different effect than usual. While they’re certainly not just incidental songs that take place between book scenes, they are also not songs that move the plot forward. Instead, the songs move the characters forward emotionally.

Also, the book is just incredibly strong. There were lines in that show that hit me like a punch in the stomach the first time I heard them.

I don’t blame you for not liking the cast recording on its own…but the show is something everyone NEEDS to see at least Once.

I always recommend this show to people.

What is a flotation tank?

500 kg of Epsom salts are added to 1000 litres of water, creating a 30 cm deep solution, which is heated to 35.5 degrees C (skin temperature).

The temperature of the water means that once you are settled in the tank, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water, and those that aren’t, in effect “fooling” the brain into believing that the person is floating in mid-air.

that sounds like a feeling i get when i meditate.
