Cool. Idina is coming to Toronto in July. I won't be attending, but I might hang by the stage door like a creep so she can sign my Wicked poster.

Not 100% on topic, but you get the idea.

Hey CC, I have a question for you. The version of Pippin you saw, did it have a segment where Pippin has a humorous conversation with the severed head of an enemy soldier? And was it two acts with an intermission, or just one act?

Interesting, thanks for that. I saw the same touring company in Niagara Falls, but they did a much-shortened one-act version of Pippin. Like they have a casino version, similar to how the Vegas Phantom of the Opera was different than the normal one.

They cut out some of the expository dialogue at the beginning (between Magic To Do and Corner of the Sky), they cut out the entirety of War Is A Science, they trim a verse from No Time At All and Morning Glow, and they cut out the severed head scene.

It's not bad for what it is, though of course I don't like them trimming 30 minutes from my favorite musical. I wonder if this means they're going to do a separate sit-down version of Pippin for Las Vegas. It would be a good fit with that market, with its circus theme.

My signed window card collection so far. I hope to have one high-profile addition to it come September (won't say what, because I don't want to jinx it).

i forgot to update about the Idina show i saw, but it was fantastic. She sang stuff off her new album, her Broadway hits, and some classic songs and creative mashups. I was a big fan of her Beatles/Do You Wanna Build a Snowman mashup, which surprised me.

Also, although I'm not a big fan of Let It Go, she had her people bring up all the little kids from the seats on stage and had them sing with her. That was pretty cool. There were a couple of empty seats in the front area for whatever reason, and she wasn't having it, so she had the people who were in the furthest back seats moved up there. She claimed her Diva Ego couldn't bear it haha.
i've seen her twice, and as long as the funds are right, I'd def see her again. I'd love to see Chenoweth and Solanga like this, and then my Trinity is complete

There should be a tour of like a Justice League of Broadway divas. Idina, Cheno and Salonga, add in Jessie Mueller and Patina Miller to round out the vocal range.

I'll write a musical that all 5 of them will want to star in. It will have a strong and empowering feminist message, that mothers and daughters can see together. I'm going to call it Black Hitler Vs. The Biker Whores From Space.
