Sondheim LOLcats is a thing that exists. Happy Friday, nerds!
This is a thing.
Well, it’s the end of the week, which means it’s the final push to get papers done. It also means that shows are going on.
The key trait for Fordham theatre majors to have is the ability to multi task. My fellow ushers and I are sitting in the back of Pope Auditorium, taking turns checking on the audience for The Marriage of Figaro and working on our papers for script analysis.
It’s been a long week, but also endlessly engaging, as everything in New York tends to be. With that said, I’m off to write about Euripedes’ Hippolytus.

Now that looks familiar.
Ensemble with Ian, our director and Nate Weida, composer
Can’t wait to see this, especially since it’s been such a pleasure to watch it all come together via Tumblr. Get your tickets here.
Get in the mood for Sunday’s Tony Awards by checking out our list of the 25 best performances from Tonys past—and yes, Cats made the list. This performance of “Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats”/”Memory” from the 1983 awards clocked in at number ten on the list. (It’s…weird.)
Do you disagree with the list? Did we leave anything off? Let us know!
Remember that time years back when I was sitting in the audience at the Tony’s and my phone went off during the In Memoriam bit and I couldn’t find it
and I’m pretty sure at that point the ring tone may have been Hollaback Girl and Christine Ebersole turned around and gave me the most horrifying stare of death and I shriveled and died in my seat but then I kept bumping into her on the street for the rest of my life and she has forever since been referred to as “My nemesis, Christine Ebersole?”
Also, these performances are amazing.
“Unlike blogging, where you spend time thinking carefully about what you say in each post, Tumblr is really more about the moment of consciousness, and capturing a snapshot of it. Hence, where blog posts are supposed to be solid and stand-alone, Tumblr posts stand in relation to an entire thread of posts. That’s why looking at a Tumblr page is like taking a peek into a person’s stream of consciousness.”
We love tumblr for the theatre community since it’s a great way of easily sharing process & inspiration- like getting to peek in on someone’s rehearsal room and production meetings!
I love this too. In fact, I’d love to see more of this.
Anyone know of of some great Theatre blogs on Tumblr?
Biggest surprise: journalism (my major) NOT in the top 20 worst-paying college degrees. Well now I feel slightly better.
File under: Things I already knew when choosing my Theatre Performance and Anthropology degrees.
“coffee break” from how to succeed in business without really trying
Oh jeeeeeeeeez this was one of my songs in our high school production of H2$ my Junior year. I haven’t heard it in forever, although I do mentally shriek “No Coffee!” to myself all.the.time.
-Laura Linney on the great Marian Seldes, in a beautiful profile by The New York Times
Marian is amazing. She taught at Fordham while I was there and I was totally in awe. I remember a friend commenting that she didn’t need to take the escalator upstairs; she floated. She was ethereal and unreal.
My plans to go lounge in Madison Square Park were ruined when I looked around and saw that it was overrun with armies of babies. I think I’ll pass.
And yes, I think today’s “park lounging” outfit wins the “this looks like something my theatre teacher who did too much LSD used to wear” award.
