    Carousel is one of my all time favorite musicals - it's one of a handful I will always go to see whenever there's a production in town. The soaring music of The Carousel Waltz, the ballet danced by Louise with the original choreography by de Mille! All those jokes about June bustin' out all over. Who cares about the plot?

    And Brian Boitano's 1988 skate to The Carousel Waltz is one of my most favorite programs he ever did. www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBVFyANq1bo

    If you enjoy modern dance, check out Great Performances tonight on PBS (check you local listings); the featured performance is Paul Taylor Dance Company in Paris. Filmed last year at the Theatre National de Chaillot, the featured performances are Brandenburgs (music from Bach's Brandenburg concertos #3 and #6) and Beloved Renegade (inspired by life and times of Walt Whitman, music from Gloria by Francis Poulenc).

    Finally watched Carousel last night, my first time seeing it. Loved it, loved the importance and relevance of the plot, the soaring music, de Mille's choreography and the amazing voices. I've worked with domestic violence victims, amazing how accurate the book was. DVR'd the Paul Taylor, not my favorite choreographer but I'll be interested to see it. I found a site on-line trying to persuade PBS to reissue their 1993 documentary Dancing in DVD form and sent a note with my support. I hope they put out Carousel on DVD, my DVR came from the cable company and we haven't been able to figure out a way to get stuff off it and onto more permanent media. Any suggestions would be great.

    July: Statue of Liberty by Ken Burns-Capitol 4th-Secrets of Althorp-Secrets of Chatsworth-Endeavour (young Inspector Morse)-Lewis & Clark by Ken Burns-The Buddha-Dancing at Jacob's Pillow

    August: Vienna Philharmonic Summer Night Concert-The Lady Vanishes (remake of the Hitchcock classic...which I love!)-Silk (modern legal drama mini-series)

    Many of the other offerings look quite good, too. It's gonna be a great summer at PBS!!

    I just re-experienced a magical acting tour de force...I watched the DVD of Julie Harris in the one-woman show The Belle of Amherst. It is about the poet Emily Dickinson; her life is recreated through the telling and dramatization of her life experiences and through recitation of her poetry. It is truly enchanting...filled with laughter and with tears.

    It was produced for the stage in 1976, and was filmed for a showing on PBS. I probably hadn't seen it since it aired 37 years ago. If you have never seen it, I highly recommend it! Check your local library, they may have a copy, or buy it as I did from Amazon for a modest price...you will not be disappointed.

    Anyone else here loving Mr. Selfridge? I am looking forward to Sundays on PBS now almost as much as when Downton is on. And Roddy the artist character is major even though he seems to be behaving like a bit of a villain right now. He and Frances O'Connor have amazing chemistry.

    That is a tense story line...and now he's using Rosalee to get back at Rose!

    I love Gregory Fitoussi as Henri and the developing relationship with Agnes...he is such a hunk!
