William Shatner-Captain Of The Starship: LIVE!  (CD) --------AUDIO ONLY--   1978 -  This two record set features William Shatner speaking at Hofstra University sometime around 1977/1978. For those of you who like to hear the Shat Man do dramatic soliloquies, you'll be happy to hear him perform pieces from "Cyrano de Bergerac", "War of the Worlds", and others. For those who want tidbits for the (at the time) upcoming movie, you've got that here too, even talking about why Leonard Nimoy was holding out for more money.  It all sort of meshes together, so the tracks are divided by side.  1. Earthbound/Go with Me/High Flight/The Flight of Man/Galileo, 2. Six Ways to the Moon/War of the Worlds, 3. The Movie, 4. Short Takes: Audience/Starship's Facilities/Peter/Summer Spaceship/Three-way Alchemy/The Brain/Finale.   A

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

TOOTSIE 1 DVD 9/11/18 Chicago, IL, Pre-Broadway. Santino Fontana (Michael Dorsey/Dorothy Michaels), Lilli Cooper (Julie Nichols), Sarah Stiles (Sandy Lester), John Behlmann (Max Van Horn), Andy Grotelueschen (Jeff Slater), Michael McGrath (Stan Fields), Reg Rogers (Ron Carlisle).  Filmed from the balcony at the first preview performance. Missing the overture and the first few seconds of the opening number.  Also, an occasional blackout or two, and some “stage searching” in the first 10 minutes.  But overall, very good with a crystal-clear picture.  Since this was filmed at the first preview performance, there are sure to be some changes before it opens on Broadway in April of 2019.
