The 04/12/13 Joy Jar

11 Apr

Just as there is nothing like a dame, there is nothing like great musical theater. Moi saw ‘Jersey Boys’ which is the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. It is probably one of the best musicals ever written. It has a great story, great music, a love story, it is fast paced and taunt. The musical is a uniquely American art form. A really good musical has you singing as you leave the theatre. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the musical.

 

 

Let’s sing our way out of this”

I’ve never had any feeling of disconnection between the classical theater, or the contemporary theater, or musical theater, or the thing that we call opera.

ll the best performers bring to their role something more, something different than what the author put on paper. That’s what makes theatre live. That’s why it persists.

I think there is no world without theatre.

The theatre is the involuntary reflex of the ideas of the crowd.

I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.

I don’t think theater is dying, and musicals are a great American art form. We’ve got apple pie, jazz and musical theater.
