Everyone else who isn’t going the the Broadway Flea Market:
Damn I haven’t even listened to the commentary yet.In the commentary Lapine explains that he wanted it shot that way cause the show is so intimate. He and Sondheim were enthralled with it.Anyway, I guess I’m not appreciating that aspect enough, but I think it would have been nice to see wider shots of the stage to fully show things like Fosca’s entrance juxtaposed with Clara reading her letter, or the transitions in the flashback.
It’s on YouYube. I thought it was kinda weird too at times, and Lapine and Sondheim did say that a few entrances were missed. It’s a really interesting commentary, you should listen to it!
Humphrey Bogart was buried with a small, gold whistle once part of a charm bracelet he had given to Lauren Bacall before they married. It was inscribed with a quote from their first movie together: “If you want anything, just whistle.”
