She flees to a spa in Harrogate. With the whole country looking for her, an American reporter finds her and ultimately tries to help her". A

BATMAN: The Musical 1 CD 1998 Demo. Rob Evan, Elaine Caswell, Karine Hannah. "Not many people are aware Warner Bros. Theater Ventures, a new wing of one of the most powerful entertainment forces in the world, announced Batman: The Musical in 1998. Jim Steinman (Whistle Down The Wind, Bat Out Of Hell) was tapped to compose, alongside David Ives who would write the book. The World Premiere was announced for Broadway 2001 but did not materialize. In 2002, in the lead-up to the Broadway premiere of Jim Steinman's "Dance Of The Vampires" a breakthrough was made. Tim Burton, the director of the original "Batman" and "Batman Returns", would direct the musical for a 2004 out-of-town tryout and a 2005 Broadway production. Unfortunately, the Broadway premiere of "Dance Of The Vampires", starring Michael Crawford, ended on a sour note. Subsequent to these events, Warner Bros. canceled "Batman" and began work on "Lestat", a new musical by Elton John and Bernie Taupin. It was to be Warner Bros. dazzling foray into theatre (an honor intended for Batman). Unfortunately, critics didn't see eye-to-eye. Following harsh out-of-town reviews, the Broadway engagement folded faster than "Vampires". Warner Brothers got cold feet and Batman: The Musical was shelved forever." TRACKS: 1. Gotham City/The Graveyard Shift, 2. In The Land of the Pig, The Butcher is King, 3. Not Allowed To Love (Original Version), 4. Not Allowed To Love (Pop Version), 5. Not Allowed To Love (Dance Version), 6. The Joker’s Song (Wonderful Toys), 7. The Catwoman’s Song (I Need All The Love I can Get), 8. We’re Still The Children We Once Were, Cry To Heaven. Recorded in a studio with full orchestrations. A

EVENING WITH QUENTIN CRISP 1 DVD 1/24/99 New York. Quentin Crisp performed his one man show intermittingly over the course of 10 years. First in London, then again with only minor revisions after he moved to New York in 1975. "An Evening with Quentin Crisp is hilarious and darkly funny, light heartedly piercing and jovial. Mr. Crisp delivers his "messages of hope..." instructing us on how to have a life-style and how to achieve the "profession of being." In the first half of the evening, Mr. Crisp delivers a highly entertaining monologue and in the second half of the evening, he takes questions from the audience, either directly in person or from those written down during the intermission on cards". Filmed at the Intar Theatre in New York, shortly after his 90th birthday. He was under contract with Media Triangle, who filmed the show for home video distribution, and which also required him to take the show back to London, then a national tour though the UK-which at 90 he didn’t want to do as he was starting to feel weak and frail. He suffered a fatal heart attack on the eve of his first London show. Patrick Newley, Crisp's friend and press agent, said he believed the stresses of a national tour had been too much for the increasingly frail 90-year-old, adding: "I am very sorry indeed to hear of his death and sadly shocked because when I spoke to Quentin roughly two or three weeks ago in New York he was clearly not happy about coming over for the tour. At his age it was too much. I rather think he might still be alive if he had not come across here." He died shortly before his 91st birthday. Pro-shot for video, with an introduction by John Hurt.

FACE THE MUSIC 1 DVD 4/1/07 Encores, New York. Judy Kaye, Walter Bobbie, Lee Wilkof, Jeffry Denman, Eddie Korbich, Chris Hoch. Music and lyrics by Irving Berlin. Book by Moss Hart. A production of Encores At City Center. "Encores! presents the first full-scale restoration of Irving Berlin’s and Moss Hart’s Face the Music, a 1932 musical about a desperate producer in New York trying to raise the money for his latest revue, Rhinestones of ’32. The show, one of Berlin’s personal favorites, contains a pair of depression-era classics, "Let’s Have Another Cup of Coffee" and "Soft Lights and Sweet Music." Well filmed, but occasional heads appear at the bottom of the screen. Filmer does a good job of shooting around them. A-

 

 

 

GOING HOLLYWOOD 1 DVD 1/83 New York. Christine Ebersole, Harry Groener, George S. Irving, Mary Louise Wilson, and John Glover. A staged reading of David Zippel’s (City Of Angels, The Goodbye Girl, The Woman In White, Pamela’s First Musical, also lyricist for Disney’s Mulan, Hercules and Tarzan) musical based on the play Once in a Lifetime by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, presented at LA’s West Side Arts Center. "A rollicking tale of three down and out troupers who decide to head for Hollywood and try their luck with the newly invented talkies. Due to a series of consistent blunders, the most stupid of the three is carried to pinnacles of fame and fortune until he's literally made a god of the industry. It's a fast paced and wild romp and a marvelous spoof of Hollywood". This musical had a short tryout run at San Diego’s Old Globe Theatre in January of 2010, directed by Jerry Mitchell, and had a New York reading (again with Christine Ebersole) in May of 2011 in New York. Some generational loss. Filmed using one camera on a tripod. B+

Glenda Jackson (Bernarda), Joan Plowright (Poncia), Deborah Findlay (Martirio), Patricia Hayes (Maria Josefa), Julia Legrand (Angustias), Mary Maddox (Magdalena), Pauline Melville (Prudencia), Amanda Root (Adela). A domineering, reclusive and ostentatiously pious widow in a small Spanish town keeps such close watch on her daughters that they are unable to have normal social lives. However, the eldest is allowed to become engaged to an unprincipled young man, primarily for the financial advantages it will bring the mother, Bernarda. Jealousy and envy ensue among the other daughters. This cast is almost entirely made up from a 1986/1987 London production at the Globe Theatre (now the Gielgud) in London. A-

KIDS FROM FAME 1 DVD Live At The Royal Albert Hall 4/6/83 BBC-TV. Debbie Allen, Valerie Landsburg, Erica Gimpel, Carlo Imperato, Gene Anthony Ray, Lee Curreri, Albert Hague, Carol Mayo Jenkins, P.R. Paul, and Lori Singer. The cast of the American series Fame toured the UK, and then Europe during their time off from filming the TV show. They first toured the UK in 1982, and due to the success of the UK tour, they toured the rest of Europe in the summer of 1983. This concert was filmed during their stop at The Royal Albert Hall in London. Musical highlights include Erica Gimpel's "Be Your Own Hero," Gene Anthony Ray's dance in "Mannequin," Lori Singer's performance on cello of "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough". The cast also does a medley of songs including "Be My Music," "I Still Believe In Me," "It's Gonna Be A Long Night," "The Secret", "Starmaker," "Body Language," "We Got The Power," "Be Your Own Hero", "Friday Night", "Desdemona", "Could We Be Magic", "A Special Place", "I Still Believe In Me", "The Secret", "Be My Music", "Sing, Sing, Sing", "Life Is A Celebration", and of course "Fame". BBC TV aired this as two half hour specials, and in the United States it was shown on CBS, with George Burns edited in as a sort of host who introduced the numbers. It was during the 1983 tour that stories began to emerge in the press that things were not so harmonious off-stage with stories of drug-taking, alcohol abuse and backstage fights. During the tour Erica Gimpell and Debbie Allen had a disagreement over the choice of a song which ultimately led to Gimpell walking out of the tour and heading back to the US. The tour carried on without her, but led to further press reports of how Allen was being domineering over the others and was labelled in one article as "a bitch". Allen later commented on the accusations saying that they upset her, but in reality, was just trying to keep the group together and focused amid the late-night parties and mayhem (which included Gene Anthony Ray smashing up a dressing room at one point). Several members commented that they were unaware of the success of the show until they arrived in London, which they found overwhelming. 1 hour, 10 minutes. A.

 

 

 

LADY IN THE DARK 1 DVD 1944 Comedy. Ginger Rogers, Ray Milland, Warner Baxter, Jon Hall, Barry Sullivan, Mischa Auer. "Ginger Rogers, "Allure" magazines editor-in-chief, suffers from headaches and continuous daydreams and undergoes psychoanalysis to determine why." Movie based on Moss Hart's, Ira Gershwin's and Kurt Weill's 1941 Broadway musical of the same name. Recorded from TV. Some generational loss, and occasional video "flickers." B

ONCE IN A LIFETIME 1 DVD 1979 PBS-TV RARE! Zoe Wannamaker (May Daniels), Richard Griffiths (George Lewis), Peter McEnery (Jerry Hyland). Written by Moss Hart & George S Kaufman. Directed by Trevor Nunn. A presentation by the Royal Shakespeare Company. This TV production features almost all of the original 1979 London production. "The introduction of films with sound in the late 1920s encourages three enterprising vaudeville performers, May Daniels, Jerry Hyland, and George Lewis, to leave New York and head for Hollywood in Once in a Lifetime. Rather than wanting to perform in the new 'talkies', sparky May and her friends seek their fortunes on the other side of the camera, by establishing an elocution school for silent film stars. (It was no longer sufficient to look the part on screen, you had to sound right too!) A chance meeting during their journey leads to the trio being hired by the Herman Glogauer Studio, where May's lack of experience as voice coach quickly becomes apparent. Meanwhile, the rather dim George unexpectedly finds himself the toast of Hollywood with his unorthodox approach to filmmaking". Shown as part of the "Great Performances" series on PBS. Some slight tracking issues, and a tracking scar along the bottom, but nothing too bad. A-

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum  (CD)
11/71 ~ Los Angeles, CA
Phil Silvers (Prologus/Pseudolus),  Carl Ballantine (Marcus Lycus), Larry Blyden (Hysterium), Nancy Walker (Domina), Ann Jillian (Tintinabula), John Hansen (Hero), Marc Breaux (Protean), Marc Wilder (Protean), Lew Parker (Protean), Joe Ross (Protean), Pamela Hall, Sonja Haney, Keita Keita, Carl Lindstrom, Trish Mahoney, Gloria Mills, Reginald Owen, Charlene Ryan.  RARE!  Full show, recorded from the audience.  This was the same production which inspired the 1972 Broadway revival, and features many of the same cast members.   B



A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum  (MP3-CD)
3/28/72 ~ Broadway, Revival
Phil Silvers, Carl Ballantine, Larry Blyden, Pamela Hall, John Henson, Lew Parker.  For this revival, the song “Pretty Little Picture” was dropped from Act I and “Farewell” (sung by Domina) was added.  Also, the song “That’ll Show Him” was dropped from Act II, and “Echo Song” (sung by Phillia and Hero) was added.  Full show, recorded from the audience on the first night of previews.   A-



A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum
1972 ~ Broadway Revival
Mickey Rooney.  RARE!  Fairly good, considering its age.   B


Love Never Dies
9/11 ~ Australia
Ben Lewis (The Phantom), Anna O’Byrne (Christine), Simon Gleeson (Raoul), Sharon Millerchip (Meg), Maria Mercedes (Madame Giry).  Recorded on the stage of the Regent Theatre in Melbourne, Australia for broadcast world-wide in theatres.  The film played for two nights in the US; on 2/28/12 and 3/7/12.  The show was rewritten and revamped after it’s dismal London opening, and the Australian version was met with more positive reviews.  Widescreen.   A


Hogan's Goat
1971 ~ PBS
Faye Dunaway, Rue McClanahan, Philip Bosco, Kevin Conway, George Rose, Robert Foxworth, Margaret Linn.  "A young Irish ward boss has a chance to be elected mayor, but the disgraced current mayor makes sure the candidate's wife learns about his affair with a just-deceased rich girl."  Faye Dunaway reprises her role, which she originated in 1965.  Her appearance in this teleplay led to her getting cast in Bonnie & Clyde.   A



Master Class
1997 ~ Los Angeles, Tour
Faye Dunaway (Maria Callas), Melinda Klump (Sophie De Palma), Suzan Hanson, (Sharon Graham), Kevin Paul Anderson (Anthony Candolino).  Filmed at The Doolittle Theatre in Los Angeles, during the show’s first US tour.  Well filmed with great close-ups, but almost all of the focus is on Faye and rarely on the other actors.  Some slight generational loss. (Faye has been talking about a movie version since she starred in the US tour, and she is currently finally filming it in Detroit).   A-




Lady Day At Emerson’s Bar And Grill  - 3/12/16 ~ HBO-TV - Audra McDonald recreates her Tony winning performance before a live audience at Cafe Brasil in New Orleans for HBO.  Originally written as an Off-Broadway show by Lanie Roberston in 1987, Lady Day tells Billie Holiday’s life story through the songs that made her famous, including “God Bless the Child,” “What a Little Moonlight Can Do,” “Strange Fruit” and “Taint Nobody’s Biz-ness.   A



Once On This Island
7/18 ~ Broadway, Revival
Courtnee Carter (understudy Ti Moune), Darlesia Cearcy (Storyteller), Merle Dandridge (Papa Ge), Quentin Earl Darrington (Agwe), Alex Newell (Asaka), Emerson Davis (Little Girl), David Jennings (understudy Tonton Julian), Isaac Powell (Daniel), Aurelia Williams (understudy Mamma Euralie).  There is some “stage searching” for the first minute or so until the filmer gets settled.  Also, there are heads in the shot, but as the show goes on, the filmer does a better job of avoiding them.  But being a difficult theatre to film in, the filmer did an outstanding job.   A-

reamgirls, Workshop  (CD)
1979
Nell Carter!  Early workshop presentation of the show with Nell Carter playing Effie.  Several songs are included here which never made it into the show.  Very interesting, and a great piece of theatrical history.  (Also included on the disc: Into The Woods Read through CD)  (NOTE: This is Not a video, it is an audio CD.)  A



Dreamgirls  (CD)
11/81 ~ Boston, MA, Pre-Broadway
Jennifer Holliday, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Loretta Devine, Obba Babatunde, Cleavant Derricks.  This is the harsher version of the show, before the changes were made-there’s not much of Effie in the second act, and she continues to bear resentment against the other girls, so there is no reconciliation at the end of the show.  Full show, recorded through the sound board, but all the vocals come from the right speaker and all the instrumentals come from the left speaker.   A

Dreamgirls  (CD)
12/20/81 ~ Broadway
Jennifer Holliday, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Loretta Devine, Cleavant Derricks, Obba Babatunde.  Full show, recorded on opening night from the audience.   B+

Present Laughter
12/16/81 ~ BBC-TV
Donald Sinden (Garry Essendine), Dinah Sheridan (Liz Essendine), Gwen Watford (Monica Reed), Elizabeth Counsell (Joanna Lyppiatt), Julian Fellows (Roland Maule).  Written by Noel Coward. “An aging and self-obsessed actor finds himself in a situation bordering on farce when he is besieged by the demands of his estranged wife, women who want to seduce him, and a crazed playwright”. This is a filmed version of a stage production that started out in Greenwich, UK, and, on the strength of its success, transferred to the West End.  Filmed before an audience at the Vaudeville Theatre in London. Coward wrote it for himself and played the lead, Gary Essendine, in the 1958 Broadway revival.   A

Moulin Rouge

8/18 ~ Boston, MA, Pre-Broadway

Aaron Tveit (Christian), Karen Olivio (Satine), Danny Burstein (Harold Zidler), Sahr Ngaujah (Toulouse-Lautrec), Tam Mutu (the Duke of Monroth), Ricky Rojas (Santiago), Robyn Hurder as (Nini).  Finally, a great recording of the show in Boston!  Recorded through the house camera, so it’s a stationary, full stage shot with audio patched in directly from the sound board.  But this is different than other similarly filmed house-cam videos in that it’s closer to the stage and the stage is framed perfectly within the camera range.  (However, occasionally if the actors are off on the far left or far right of the stage they are out of view).  There are actually two house cameras used.  The close-up camera that frames the stage is used for most of the show, but there’s a wider shot one that is also utilized a few times.   A

 

Spotlight! Gwen Verdon

1983 ~ New York Public Access TV

Rian Keating was a Broadway fan and had a public access TV show in the early 1980’s.  He seems to be about 17 years old, but he’s actually 21.  He was lucky enough to score some interviews with some big names.  For this interview with Gwen (his first), he explains that he got the Manhattan phone directory and found the phone number listed for Nicole Fosse, and was surprised when Gwen Verdon answered.  When he explained what he wanted, Gwen politely declined but reconsidered when Rian told her that Spotlight! was an up and coming show in New York, similar to the Dick Cavett Show, and that if she agreed to do the show, she could talk about anything she wanted.  It was then she agreed to an interview, so she could discuss the psychological issues facing actors trying to balance family life.  When she showed up, she was surprised at how young he was, but still agreed to do the interview.  30 minutes.   A-


Spotlight! Milo O’Shea

11/83 ~ New York Public Access TV

Spotlight!  Marge Champion

9/83 ~ New York Public Access TV

When Marge showed up for this interview, arranged by photographer Kenn Duncan, and took one look at Rian Keating, realized the interview was for Public Access television, and the studio was 100 degrees on Labor Day weekend she was skeptical and almost left. But when she saw how well-prepared Rian was, she agreed to stay and do the interview.  (This was only Rian’s fourth interview).  She actually calls him “young man” a few times.  30 minutes.   A-

 

Spotlight! Theresa Saldana

10/83 ~ New York Public Access TV

The "Raging Bull" actress discusses her career and stabbing attack a year earlier.  She tells Rian she is in New York to participate in a backer’s audition of a new musical called “Lisa And David” based on the book by Theodore Isaac Rubin.  She predicts it will become a very big musical.  30 minutes.   A

 

Spotlight! Bebe Neuwirth

4/84 ~ New York Public Access TV

Rian interview Bebe at the Production Company where Rian ran into her while she was waiting for her bartender boyfriend to get off of work.  Rian was there to meet with George Rose hoping to arrange an interview (which he did eventually get, but it was more than a year later-see below).  He recognized Bebe from A Chorus Line, and he learned she was getting ready to do an Off-Broadway show called “The Road To Hollywood”, and since she was just starting her career, she was very anxious to do the interview.  Here Rian is 23 and Bebe is 24.  30 minutes.   A

Spotlight! Julie Wilson (Parts 1 and 2)

Rian interviews Julie in what looks to be someone’s backyard garden in the city.  At age 59, Julie had just moved back to New York and was making a splash at Michael’s Pub doing an all-Sondheim show.  Of Sondheim Julie says, “unlike Cole Porter, Sondheim makes the singer do all the work”.  This was the only two-part interview Rian did, and the two episodes aired a week apart.  50 minutes total.   A

Happy Days

10/13/79 ~ BBC-TV

Billie Whitelaw (Winnie), Leonard Fenton (Willie).  Written by Samuel Beckett.  “Winnie, buried to her waist, follows her daily routine and prattles to her husband, Willie, who is largely hidden and taciturn. Her frequent refrain is “Oh this is a happy day.” Later, in Act II she is buried up to her neck, but continues to talk and remember happier days”.  Unusually for Beckett, the first production was in New York (it starred Sada Thompson and closed after just three performances), at the Cherry Lane Theatre in 1961, this was the only play of his not to open in London. The following year it premiered in London at the Royal Court Theatre, with Brenda Bruce in the role of Winnie. In 1979, Beckett directed his own Royal Court production with regular collaborator Billie Whitelaw playing Winnie, it was this revival that was filmed here for the BBC.   A-


Mean Girls

7/4/18 ~ Broadway

Erika Henningsen, Taylor Louderman, Ashley Park, Kate Rockwell, Barrett Wilbert Weed, Grey Henson, Kerry Butler, Kyle Selig.  It takes the filmer a minute or two to “settle” at the beginning of the show, and then things improve.  Nicely filmed from the balcony.  Hand railing visible throughout, but never really gets in the way of the action onstage.   A-



 

Harry And Lena

3/22/70 ~ ABC-TV

Harry Belafonte and Lena Horne star in this one-hour television special.  Some of the songs covered; Joe South's "Walk a Mile in My Shoes", John Fogerty's "Down on the Corner", and Horne's moving rendition of Oscar Brown, Jr.'s "Brown Baby," from the Broadway musical Joy, "It's Always Somewhere Else", "In My Life", "Ghetto", "Brown Baby", "Subway to the Country",  "Measure the Valleys", "Love Story", "I Want To Be Happy", "The First Time", "Don't It Make You Want To Go Home", and "Abraham, Martin & John".

Broadway Backwards, 2019

3/11/19 ~ New York

Hosted by Jenn Colella, the 14th annual edition of the show raised a record breaking $704,491.00 for BC/EFA (the previous fundraising record was set last year at $608,273.00).

Be More Chill - 8/15/18 ~ Off-Broadway - Will Roland (Jeremy), George Salazar (Michael), Gerard Canonico (Rich), Jason Tam (The Squip), Stephanie Hsu (Christine), Katlyn Carlson (Chloe), Tiffany Mann (Jenna), Lauren Marcus (Brooke), Jason Sweetooth Williams (Mr. Reyes/Jeremy's Dad).  “What if popularity came in a pill? Would you take it, no questions asked? In BE MORE CHILL, achieving the “perfect life” is now possible thanks to some mysterious new technology—but it comes at a cost that’s not as easy to swallow. What could possibly go wrong? Blending the contemporary with retro sci-fi, this thrillingly exciting, comically subversive, and deeply felt new musical takes on the competing voices in all of our heads. And ultimately proves, there’s never been a better time in history to be yourself—especially if you’re a loser…geek…or whatever”.  Some stage searching to start.  Filmed from the back of the house, with lots of heads in the frame, but as the show goes on, things improve.  The show is transferring to Broadway and opens at the Lyceum Theatre on March 10, 2019.   B

Despite having seen few operas and not knowing how to read music, he began stage-directing them in the 1970s and has since become one of the world's leading opera directors with several classic productions to his credit. His best-known production is probably his 1982 "Mafia"-styled Rigoletto set in 1950s Little Italy, Manhattan. In its early days he was an associate director at the Royal National Theatre and later he ran the Old Vic Theatre. He has also become a well-known television personality and familiar public intellectual in Britain and the United States of America. About 1 hour, 20 minutes. A

At one point during the interview, Cavett asked Coward, "What is the word for when one has terrific, prolific qualities?" Without missing a beat, Coward answered in a deadpan manner, "Talent", which sent Cavett and the audience into convulsions of laughter.

JOHN 1 DVD 2014 London. This powerful new verbatim work by DV8 Physical Theatre follows the extraordinary life story of one man. John. After years of crime, drug use and struggling to survive, John’s desire for a new life leads him to a place unknown by most. Based on frank interviews conducted by DV8’s Artistic Director, Lloyd Newson, John combines spoken word with movement to create a touching and poignant theatrical experience. John is a verbatim piece in which the choreography has been devised by the company while listening to interview transcripts on their iPods. Yet rather than presenting a documentary collage of wider social themes, the 80-minute work focuses on the development of a single, extraordinary character. On a revolving stage, to a soundtrack by Gareth Fry, we see swift, matter-of-fact tableaux of John’s early life with his violent father and depressed, shoplifting mother: the brother tied to his bed and whipped until he bleeds, the mother assaulted, the babysitter raped; the children lined up like store mannequins to steal school uniforms.  Hailed by some critics (“groundbreaking”, “chilling”, “an entirely new way to appreciate dance and theatre”), and panned by some (“a national disgrace”, “pornography pretending to be art”).  Presented by London’s National Theatre, and broadcast live to theatres worldwide.

KISS ME, KATE 1 DVD 4/21/64 (Musical/Made-for-TV) RARE!  Howard Keel (Fred Graham), Millicent Martin (Lois Lane), Patricia Morrison (Lilli Vanessi), Irving Davies (Bill Calhoun), Eric Barker (Harrison Howell).  This version of the show, was produced for the launch of BBC Two, and the second of 4 productions that were made for television (the first on Hallmark Hall of Fame in 1958, with Drake and Morison reprising their Broadway roles, this version, the third in 1968 with then husband-and-wife team Robert Goulet and Carol Lawrence, and the fourth in 2003 on Great Performances, a high-definition shot performance of the London revival with Brent Barrett and Rachel York).  After months of promoting the launch of the new BBC2-with it’s brand-new 625 line resolution (until then, UK TV's had a resolution of 405 lines), the night turned out to be a disaster.  50 minutes before the launch, a fire broke out at a local power station, cutting power to most of London (although the television station did have power).  They started the evening’s news show which was to be followed by this airing of Kiss Me Kate, but it soon became clear that there was no audience, and after a few minutes, the schedule was abandoned.  The network executives thought the evening was a disaster, but soon realized when the papers came out the next day with the headlines “BBC Two Fails - Corporation To Try Again Tonight” that they couldn’t afford this kind of publicity, and the “debut” of the new network happened one night later than expected, to a huge audience.  The date that’s superimposed on the video is 4/20/64-which was the originally scheduled night.  So it’s unclear if this is a filmed rehearsal, and they called everyone back the next night to do the show live-or if they aired this taped performance on the 21st. This version was slightly rewritten and abbreviated to fit within it’s 95 minute time-slot.  A little on the dark side.  In black and white, but it has a slight blue tinge to it.  Has producer’s counter numbers onscreen.  Some slight generational loss.

Ramsden, a venerable old man, distrusts Jack Tanner, an eloquent youth with revolutionary ideas, saying "He is prodigiously fluent of speech, restless, excitable (mark the snorting nostril and the restless blue eye, just the thirty-secondth of an inch too wide open), possibly a little mad" In spite of what Ramsden says, Ann accepts Tanner as her guardian, though Tanner doesn't want the position at all. She also challenges Tanner's revolutionary beliefs with her own ideas. Despite Tanner's professed dedication to anarchy, he is unable to disarm Ann's charm, and she ultimately persuades him to marry her, choosing him over her more persistent suitor, a young man named Octavius Robinson”.  Presented by London’s National Theatre and broadcast live to cinemas across the world.

NO CARDS 1 DVD 12/20/96 Boston, MA. Peter Cameron (Arthur Seymour), Ginger Green (Annabella Penrose), David Harrison (Churchmouse), Henry Kettell (Ellis Dee), Vanessa Schukis (Mrs. Pennythorne). No Cards is a "musical piece in one act" for four characters, written by W. S. Gilbert, with music composed and arranged by Thomas German Reed. It was first produced at the Royal Gallery of Illustration, Lower Regent Street, London, under the management of German Reed, opening on 29 March 1869 and closing on 21 November 1869. The work is a domestic farce of mistaken identities and inept disguises, as two men desperately compete to marry a wealthy young lady. One is young and poor, and the other is a rich miser. Each disguises himself as her guardian.  No Cards was the first of Gilbert's six pieces for the Gallery of Illustration. It was also Gilbert's first libretto with prose dialogue and the first stage work for which he wrote lyrics to be set to music, rather than lyrics to pre-existing music. No Cards was played on a double bill with Arthur Sullivan and F. C. Burnand's Cox and Box, although Gilbert and Sullivan did not meet until later that year. After a successful 139 performances, the bill toured the British provinces.  Gilbert liked German Reed's setting of the Babbetyboobledore song enough to reuse it later in 1879 in his next show, The Pretty Druidess.  Presented by the Royal Victorian Opera Company in Boston, MA.  Filmed by a local cable company using multiple cameras. A.

Produced by David Merrick. This was Merrick’s first show since suffering a stroke in1985, and he was still in poor health. This revival was retooled, and featured an all-black cast. The show was panned by critics, and Merrick got into a public feud with Frank Rich, the New York Times critic. This video appears to be filmed from a tripod in the back of the house. Some generational loss, but considering it’s age, it’s not too bad. Before the show there is some footage outside the theatre which includes David Merrick checking out the crowd. The show closed after just 77 performances.    B.
 
 
ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS 1 DVD 9/15/11 London. James Corden (Francis Henshall), David Benson (Gareth), Oliver Chris (Stanley Stubbers), Tom Edden (Alfie), Trevor Laird (Lloyd Boateng), Claire Lams (Pauling Clench). “In 1960s Brighton, a socially naive Francis Henshall becomes separately employed by two men – Roscoe Crabbe, a local gangster, and Stanley Stubbers, an upper class criminal. Francis tries to keep the two from meeting, in order to avoid each of them learning that Francis is also working for someone else. However, it turns out that Roscoe is really Rachel Crabbe in disguise, her twin brother Roscoe having been killed by her lover, who is none other than Stanley Stubbers. Mixed in with these chaotic events is Pauline Clench who was originally meant to marry Roscoe but is now set to elope with over-the-top amateur actor Alan Dangle. The play includes two extended passages of improvisation where audience members are recruited into the play”.  Presented by London’s National Theatre, and broadcast live to cinemas across the world.

Consumed by an uncontrollable passion for her young stepson and believing her husband, Theseus, to be dead, Phèdre confesses her darkest desires and enters the world of nightmare. When Theseus returns alive and well, Phèdre, fearing exposure, accuses her stepson of rape. The result is carnage”.  Presented by London’s National Theatre and broadcast live to cinemas across the world. A

RAINMAKER 1 DVD 10/22/82 HBO-TV. Tommy Lee Jones (Starbuck), James Cromwell (Noah Curry), William Katt (Jimmy Curry), Tuesday Weld (Lizzie).  Directed by John Frankenheimer.  In 1955 Hall Wallis purchased the film rights to The Rainmaker for $300,000.00, but the play’s author N. Richard Nash held onto the stage rights.  HBO rented out a legitimate theatre in Los Angeles, complete with an invited audience to give the illusion this was a filmed version of the stage play.  When N. Richard Nash heard of this HBO production, he sued HBO insisting he held the rights to all stage performances.  HBO countered that they now held the film rights, and since it wasn’t a paying audience they were within their legal rights to film it and air it.  The suit threatened to delay the air date, but just one day prior to airing, HBO settled with N. Richard Nash for an undisclosed amount. A.
 
 
SALOME 1 DVD 6/22/17 Olwen Fouéré, Isabella Nefar, Lloyd Hutchinson, Ramzi Choukair, Paul Chahidi. “The story has been told before, but never like this. An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world. This charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the center of a revolution”. Presented by London’s National Theatre, and broadcast live to cinemas around the world.  In English, and subtitled in English.  A


SKINTIGHT 1 DVD 6/18 Off-Broadway. Idina Menzel (Jodi Isaac), Jack Wetherall (Elliot Isaac), Cynthia Mace (Orsolya), Stephen Carrasco (Jeff), Will Brittain (Trey), Eli Gelb (Benjamin Cullen).  Written by Joshua Harmon.  “Skintight is a scorching examination of beauty, youth and sex. Reeling from her ex-husband’s engagement to a much younger woman, Jodi Isaac (Idina Menzel) turns to her famous fashion-designer dad for support. Instead, she finds him wrapped up in his West Village townhouse with Trey. Who’s 20. And not necessarily gay. But probably an adult film star. At least, according to Jodi’s son. Who’s also 20. And definitely gay. Skintight assays the nature of love, the power of attraction, and the ways in which a superficial culture persists in teaching its children that all that matters is what’s on the inside”.  Beautifully filmed with no issues.

TALES OF THE CITY 1 DVD The Musical 2011 San Francisco, CA. Judy Kaye, Mary Birdsong, Josh Breckenridge, Manoel Felciano, Diane J. Findlay, Patrick Lane, Kathleen Elizabeth Monteleone, Richard Poe, Julie Reiber, Andrew Samonsky, Wesley Taylor, Betsy Wolfe. From the Tony Award winning creators of Avenue Q, based on Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City and More Tales of the City.  “Set On the bustling streets of 1970s San Francisco, neon lights pierce through the fog-drenched skies, disco music explodes from crowded nightclubs, and a wide-eyed Midwestern girl finds a new home—and creates a new kind of family”.  Recorded through the theatre’s house camera, so it’s a stationary full-stage shot, with audio patched directly in from the soundboard.

A


TRYING TIMES 1 DVD "The Visit” 1987 PBS. Jeff Daniels, Julie Hagerty, Swoosie Kurtz.  Writen by Christopher Durang, directed by Alan Arkin.  "This is a comic, somewhat realistic one act about a married couple, Jim and Marsha, who are a bit restless in their relationship, and who have their lives thrown into disarray by the visit of Wanda, Jim’s high school girl friend who has suddenly shown up. Wanda, a meaty comic role played to the hilt by the marvelous Swoosie Kurtz, can’t stop talking. She flirts inappropriately with Jim, telling long stories of her past promiscuity and various possibly criminal activities. Marsha’s response is polite but strained; Jim is kind of flattered by the attention, until he starts to find it all too much too."  Aired as part of PBS' anthology sitcom series, "Trying Times."  About 30 minutes.  Some generational loss.

WILD 1 DVD 7/23/16 London. Caoilfhionn Dunne, Jack Farthing, John Mackay.  Written by Mike Bartlett.  “Last week, Andrew was that guy with his girl lunching in KFC, discussing apartments and making plans for the future. Today he’s in Moscow, in an undisclosed hotel room, on the run and at risk of assassination. Last week, a nobody. This week, America’s Most Wanted: a man who humiliated his country with one touch of a button. Mike Bartlett’s darkly comic new play explores the unexpected, bewildering, and life-changing consequences of challenging the status quo at a global level. As the State grows more powerful because of technology, and technology grows more powerful because of the State, where do the self-appointed protectors of the rights of the citizen stand? Heroes? Or traitors?”  Produced at the Hampstead Theatre and broadcast live to cinemas throughout Europe. A
 
 
YERMA 1 DVD 8/31/17 London. Billie Piper (Her), Brendon Cowell (John), John Macmillan (Victor), Maureen Beattie (Helen), Thalassa Teixeira (Des), Charlotte Randle (Mary). “The incredible Billie Piper returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax”.  Presented at The Old Vic, and broadcast to cinemas worldwide by National Theatre Live.

Ben Vereen (Genie), Bruce Vilanch (Widow Twankey), Richard Karn (The Sultan), Jordan Fisher (Aladdin), Ashley Argota (Princess), Josh Adamson (Abanazar), Ben Giroux (Wishee Washee),
Vanessa Nichole (Slave of the Ring). Presented by the Pasadena Playhouse, and produced by Lythgoe Family Productions (headed by So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol’s Nigel Lythgoe, the show was written by Nigel’s wife, Bonnie, and is directed by his son Kris).  An updated version of the classic Arabian Nights tale, in the style of a traditional British family Panto (Panto, not to be confused with the theatrical medium of pantomime, is a form of musical comedy stage production, designed for family entertainment. It was developed in the United Kingdom in the 1700’s  and is generally performed during the Christmas and New Year season. Modern panto includes songs, slapstick comedy and dancing, employs gender-crossing actors, and combines topical humor with a story loosely based on a well-known fairy tale. It is a participatory form of theatre, in which the audience is expected to sing along with certain parts of the music and shout out phrases to the performers). Aladdin And His Winter Wishes a singing, swinging and soaring adventure that features family-friendly magic, with a comedic twist, dancing (with "So You Think You Can Dance" alumni), a live pony and contemporary music including “Jai Ho” (from Slumdog Millionaire), “Treasure”, “I’m Too Sexy”, “You Don’t Know Me”, “Break My Stride”, “Makes You Beautiful”, “”Billionaire”, Call Me Maybe”, “Walking On Sunshine” and many more.  Nicely filmed, one or two blackouts, but nothing too bad. (Also see  “A Snow White Christmas” from my main list, last year’s first annual “panto” show).   A

The National Theatre revival is the first fully staged major London production of Follies to present the original Broadway version of the show. Sondheim and Goldman revised large parts of the show’s script and score for its 1987 London premiere, toning down the underlying bleakness of the Broadway original, and offering a more hopeful finale for its central characters. Director Dominic Cooke revisited early drafts of Goldman’s script, restoring original dialogue and moments that have not been seen in the production since its 1971 Broadway run.  This is an incredible production, easily the best I have ever seen.   A
