So the 2013-2014 Broadway season is starting to pick up, and there are adaptations galore. Big Fish recently opened. I personally think The Bridges of Madison County is one to keep an eye on. It features music & lyrics by Jason Robert Brown )a phenomenal composer), direction by one of my favorite directors Bartlett Sher (South Pacific [2008 revival, The Light in the Piazza , and the Metropolitan Opera’s most recent production of Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia), and stars the effervescent Kelli O’Hara.
You can get discount tickets to Broadway and Off-Broadway theatre as a CUNY student/adjunct through TKTS this link: https://secure2.tdf.org/join/CUNY.html. It’s how I afford most of my theatre.
…Finally, this is me fan-girling more than anything else, but Emma Approved started today! You can watch the first episode here: http://youtu.be/aeeXkf8LZ_8. (And if you haven’t seen The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, you should spend procrastination time here: http://youtu.be/KisuGP2lcPs)
If you can’t tell, I’m finally catching up with this course post-comps. I’m off to work on my post about The Sentinel/2001: A Space Odyssey and read Hutcheon.
