21 DAYS OF... PAUPER TO PRINCESS


DAY 6

Okay, so we also had a chat/work session with the two delightful gentleman who wrote this skit...that has been around longer than some of our cast members have been alive.

Really.

And it was extraordinary.

To watch Claude Michel conduct with such passion, clarity and intelligence.

To learn that the opening "uhs" and "look downs" are from a work song from Calabria.  And if you rush them, you do not hear/feel/see the toil and anguish.

To be told to let the show breathe.

To hear the all the rubato, the give and take, of "A Heart Full of Love."

To slow down the waltz of deception...making it less whimsical and more...well...deceptive.

We may/may not have gone a skoche past 3 hours...depending on whom you ask.

Whichever, the show was magnificent. 

Haroo.

Definite Dear Diary moments.

P.s.  I really must raid Alain Boublil's shoe closet.  Freaking treasure trove.
