    Opera Suggestions, II

    And if Gelb had his way, he'd make it a "pick-up" non contract chorus. I hate him!

    DWTS S26: All-Athletes Edition! (i.e. the DWTS thread for NOT yammering about what happened 24 years ago)

    I thought the same thing but yet Madonna did the same thing a number of years ago as a "concept". His wig was what really got me. They should have done at least spiky - K-pop type.

    DWTS S26: All-Athletes Edition! (i.e. the DWTS thread for NOT yammering about what happened 24 years ago)

    Adam & Jenna's freestyle was more suited to SYTYCD. I personally liked it but this wasn't the audience. I thought Carrie Ann would like it since it was very "Madonna-esque" and I knew Len would not like it at all. It looked like choreo that Mark Kannemura did for Jenna when she was on SYTYCD (I...

    NYC Ballet Fans, part 2

    I was able to speak with her recently and she said she was tired of the politicking. I don't think she was forced out, per se, but obviously she was not on the same page as KM. I don't doubt that her schedule was probably reduced as Kwanfan said. I feel really badly for her as it seems like...

    She was not forced out.

    Kevin has nothing to do with her retirement. People forget that she is 39, ancient in ballet dancer years. She is slowing down. I know parts of the reason but unfortunately, I am not permitted to reveal them. It's not Kevin.

    Genealogy research

    When you talk spelling errors on the census, I have Canadian ancestors who came down into Chittenden, VT in the 1800s. St. Esprit was changed to Sanspree then of all things "McGee" which seems to have stuck even though there is no Irish or Scottish in this part of the family. Also messed up...

    2017 Tony Award Nominations

    Spacey for me was much, much better than I thought he would be. I saw "Great Comet" and am crazy about the show. It's a wild ride. Groban is terrific, as is the entire cast. I call it "opera on acid." Not at all traditional and it's like nothing ever seen before. Haven't seen "Dear Evan...

    If anyone is interested in another WDYTA episode, check out Jerry Springer's. His was done as a UK version, as he was born there. Fascinating history as he is Jewish and absolutely heartbreaking at the end. We know him as a crazy talk-show host; in this he is a sensitive man. You Tube should...

    I think Hessen (sorry, that is the region, not Hesse as I quoted) is considered to be Germany, it's that the border went back & forth a bit. Overall, I go with the German, also, esp. as my 2x Great grandfather spoke German, not French. I have enough French on my mom's side! Tom Bergeron's...

    The European borders changed so much. My grandmother's family is Hesse, from the Hesse region of what would seem to be Germany, except it was also in France. She always had visions of being from the Royal Hesses; her grandfather came over as a shoemaker, so I highly doubt it. I also know a...

    WDYTYA in the US was not cancelled. I watched the entire recent series. Some of it was a bit boring. I liked Jessica Biel's & Liv - Steven Tyler's the best. As usual, the original UK version I find much more interesting, even with some of the celebs who I don't know. The stories have a lot...

    Simone411 - I'm from Ohio, and can trace my lineage back to a Cox family at about the same time - Isaac then daughter Sarah Cox; their descendants also emigrated to PA then to OH. Odd coincidence & wonder if we are related?

    2017 Tony Award Nominations

    I am not a crazed Josh Groban fan, but I must say, he sings beautifully and is wonderful in "Great Comet" I loved, loved the show. I truly is like nothing ever seen on Broadway before. I want it to win the Tony, but my bet is on the "Come from Away". I haven't seen it but I guess it's a...
