and the time frame says it’s alright…ok, WIND IT UP!!!

i was just getting started when all i saw were hands waving hysterically (director/stage managers) urging me to wind it up.
wished we coulda kept rockin’ and just gone to commercial.
rockus interuptus.
though i must admit i never thought i’d hear our band name (TNP) uttered on national television.
i think back on all the uptight clubs that wouldn’t book us because of our name.
thanks to ms. walters and ms. goldberg for giving our weird little play some SERIOUS love.
but geez, medleys are a motherfucker.

    I’ve been trying to get my wife, her sister and her mother to make a sojourn from the LBC to NYC to see the show since it was playing Off-Broadway last year. The Spike Lee plug was helpful, but I gotta give props to Whoopi and The View for finally getting the point across. Here’s hoping that homeboys and homegirls from across the nation will descend en masse on “The Great White Way” (or “The Great Black Way,” according to ABC News.Com) as a result. See you soon!

    I hope PS is still playing on NY when I get my finances together. Loved the Berkeley production, but nothing would beat seeing it on Broadway.

    I spent several weeks working on the show up to just before Opening and I have not been as sad as I was when I had to leave. It is one of the only shows that I have worked on that I ever wanted to mix that I wasn’t doing so. Rock on Stew! You have an awesome show!
