THE THRILL OF MY BLOGGING YEAR!
Of course, much of it may also have to do with the flurry of media attention on that unfortunate Newsweek article that included one of the show's stars as an example of a point the writer was trying to make. I included a response to that as part of my review - I just couldn't let it drop. It needed to be addressed. As most of us know, Kristin Chenoweth, felt much the same way and wrote a distinguished and equally news making response to the original article. The press has also been particularly vicious about her take on the role of Fran Kubelik in Promises, Promises.
So, imagine my excitement that not only did Ms. Chenoweth read my review, but was moved to Tweet about it! I have so much respect for her values, her talent, and her courage to say "enough is enough." To find even a small measure of validation always feels good, but this is a true honor.
AND THEN THERE WAS ONE...
MAZZIE/DANIELEY ARE THE NEW GOODMANS
And you know I already have tickets! Look for my review later this summer. I can't wait!
