So my dear ones, it’s a musical ~ it’s my life. Jack says its “Elaine Stritch at Liberty” meets “Jersey Boys.” For me, its “All That Jazz” meets “Hair” in the not too distant future ~ say when your kids are grown or your kid’s kids are grown. Beau is doing the music direction. There are brilliant voices. He’s so buzzed he didn’t sleep last night – he worked all through. All I want is for the songs to exist. So many, never heard. I just want them to live and I want to be alive to see and hear it.
I’m feeling that thing ~ I hear Peter saying “Melanie, you don’t know who you are”
and I answer
“Yes I do, Peter.
