The glorious diva Patti LuPone in the original Broadway production of Evita. I’d never understood what was so special about her, or even thought she was very talented until I saw this. The amount of things she can put into one tiny flick of her wrist… Astounding.

Evita is a musical I can talk about for hours, but that’ll have to be in a later post.


Some Sondheim to start your week off!

While he isn’t one of my favorite composers (I’m not refined enough for that! ;)) this performance by Susan Terry is absolutely amazing and life-affirming. The movie A Little Night Music is based on, “Smiles of A Summer Night” also happens to be one of my favorites.
