HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

2012 in Review: My Favorite Things: Part I

I've got a lot of stuff planned for this blog between now and the end of the year, so I figured why not start reviewing the year a little early?  Oprah just came out with her annual list of stuff the rest of us can't afford ($500 socks? Talk about a foot fetishist dream...) great gift ideas for the discerning public.  Well here are 5 things you might consider for the discerning theatre fan.  My theatre-loving life is just that much better with these things.  I also included websites for you, in case you want to buy them!

JEFF'S FAVORITE "THEATRE THINGS"

3 CAST RECORDINGS AND THEATRE MEMORABILIA:

  • Carrie (Premiere Cast Recording):  I haven't had it out of my CD shuffler since I got it.  And here's my REVIEW in case you are interested.  And you can order it here: Ghostlight Records or Amazon.com . ($14.77)






  • Bonnie and Clyde (Original Broadway Cast Recording):  Another CD that hasn't been out of my player since I got it.  Awesome performances by Laura Osnes, Jeremy Jordan, Claybourne Elder and Melissa van der Schyff and an interesting, infectious score by Frank Wildhorn make this a must-have.  For information go to Broadway Records and to buy it, try Amazon.com . ($13.56)







  • Carols for a Cure: Its hard to believe we are already up to Volume 14 of this annual holiday recording!  This year's edition is particularly collectible: Perez Hilton, Cyndi Lauper and Ricky Martin are featured soloists.  But the real gem?  "Keep the Home Fires Burning" sung by the cast of Rebecca!




  • The Ultimate Playbill Binder: For the serious Playbill collector, this library quality-bound binder comes with 18 sleeves made from archival grade materials to help keep the aging process at bay.  Each binder can hold 24, though it i not recommended to hold more.  Extra sleeves may be purchased separately   Lower quality, less expensive binders are available for the fan interested in keeping their Playbills in order and easy to re-read.  For information and to order click HERE. ($33.95; extra sleeves $7.95)



Just think... you can buy all of this for just over $70.00 (not including taxes, shipping and handling).  Or you can buy 7 of each... or one pair of Oprah's favorite socks...
