The Reality of Writing a Musical: A Narrative

“Excuse me, there’s no pretense here. I happen to be genuinely self-absorbed and deeply shallow!” ― Stephen Schwartz, Wicked Hi darling people! Do like that Stephen Schwartz quote? Isn’t he too amahzing for words? LA is so gorgeous and rainy today-it’s really kind of making my life, to be perfectly honest. The problem with living through a drought, though, is that by the time it does … Continue reading The Reality of Writing a Musical: A Narrative

Falling Slowly for Fall*

Hi my dears!

It happens.) Now, I personally, have some issues keeping track of time, especially time relating to Halloween-costume-acquirement. So, for instance, when it’s one day … Continue reading Falling Slowly for Fall*

Bookish Freaks + Theater Geeks

Well, anyway, I never really lost that worm … Continue reading Bookish Freaks + Theater Geeks

In Pursuit of Class

  Classiness. Sometimes when I get kind of insecure in social situations I close my eyes and I can sort of hear Carol Channing, Elizabeth Taylor, and Barbra Streisand hissing, “Class it up, honey.” I know that sounds weird. I have, since the age of 15,  been on a quest to achieve the epitome of classiness, whatever the heck that consists of. Sadly I have not always been on this quest. When I was a young chit … Continue reading In Pursuit of Class
