Films and other Projects.

Film/TV stuff had fallen off so much in 2009-2010. I got a full time job.
I don't have time for these projects right now. Too bad. I miss it.

Sadly, very few productions are recorded, much less made available later. They are lost. You can't even search a database such as IMDB for movies to find your favorite actors doing theater.
June2K10:I've had great fun ushering at Bass, et al. Sound in Balcony 2 is a problem. I gave up understanding much of anything when I am up there. But the shows are great otherwise:Tegan & Sara, Fiddler on the Roof, Phantom of the Opera(see note), DRT Cancion, A View from the Bridge, A Chorus Line. Paramount has some great stuff:Screwtape Letters, Roy Lozano dancers. Zach:not much really. Our Town was quite nice. Not much going on there.(Note):I ushered Phantom. A friend said she saw it a few years ago, and not again. There were no memorable songs. After ushering it twice in one day, I now know why. I had not known that Phantom not only took place in an opera house, it is an opera itself. I could barely understand most of what they were singing the whole show(I was on balcony 2! both times) At least I got the emotion. It certainly is not musical theater! I was ultimately dissapointed and will not see this again either unless I am on orchestra level.
Jan2k10:Been ushering at Bass et al. for a bit. Great shows. Fleck-Meyer-Hussein concert was outstanding, Theres a Boy in the Girls Bathroom and Pride and Prejudice were great, Riverdance was pretty good as well. paramount has had some great concerts and circus ahows.
Jul2k9:Well, High School Musical 2 seems to be postponed for this summer. The upcoming fall Zach season looks bland, usual Xmas shows I probably won't do as I've seen them a lot. I am now starting to usher at UT-PAC, first show, "Wicked" at Bass. upd:This was an outstanding show!
May2K9:Grapes of Wrath, the musical is fantastic. Takes a very depressing subject and leaves you feeling hopeful for the fuiture. The music fits in perfectly.

Nov2K8:Well, no plans for Plaid Tidings, Forever Plaid, or Shear Madness. Surprises me that a theater is left empty for several months. Usual Dec stuff...SantaLand Diaries I'll usher once, Rocking Christmas Party-probably not.
Aug2K8:WOW! Altar Boyz are fantastic! Great performances, great songs. I am not religious, but if I had this growing up, I might be more involved now. I love listening to the songs. While the CD is not of the guys who did our show, they sound very much the same, and its easy to forget.
Dec2K6...WOW! I am loving Plaid Tidings! What a great show. I hope this becomes a holiday staple, rotating with Shear Madness. Now I want to see Forever Plaid.
08Jan2K6:I am enjoying watching and ushering Shear Madness right now. A murder mystery comedy at a hair cutting salon in downtown Austin. Thru 12Feb06. Probably my favorite comedy. I have not seen this in the years I have been ushering. But the cast is perfect. Finally got to see Tony be the murderer! Probably won't be back for a while. Urinetown starts Jan 19.
Note:I have volunteered to usher performances at Zach Scott for many years(I usually get to see them for free). Most have been excellent. As of End 2008---#1:"Altar Boyz", 2008, #2:"Hank Williams Lost Highway" with Kenneth Brian, 2005 ties with "Grapes of Wrath", 2009, #3:"Shear Madness", 2005.
One can volunteer to do other things, so on a Saturday in Sep 2005, I was guarding a parking lot from ACLF visitors. I was going through the program on "Shear Madness" and I was surprised to find that David R. Jarrott was in "$5.15/hr". I was more surprised to find that Espie Randolph was in the "Idiocracy"(UMJP, 3001) now to be released in fall 2006. And then Larissa Walcott was in "Life of David Gale"! Three performers in things I have done. What a surprise! HA!
