love you for this pick - she's brilliant :)


Thanks you Sprite I love you too and great to see another PR on Lush. I am assuming you are a PR? lol. I am a big fan of hers saw her perform twice when she came to Australia and I did enjoy her F.L.A.G album and performances very much.

The Phantom of The Opera is an incredibly well composed score based on an equally incredible book. I went to see the 25th Anniversary a while back in New York and was very impressed with standard that the musical stands at.

From the Point of View of Performing, I enjoyed Porgie and Bess, Riverboat, Les Miserables, and Fiddler. But they all have great male roles, so I admit bias.

That's ashame, I got to see the FLAG tour in Sydney with my ex. It wasn't the same without Aparella and Contessa. It was missing that type of element. Maggot and Viva were great as usual and so was miss Autumn.


Another musical I like well it's a movie is Bugsy Malone. A favourite of mine as a child.

MY favorite to play is the lead tenor sax part in Guys and Dolls. the Havana Scene swings like mad, and has an eight bar section where I get to read letters (chords) instead of written notes. And, unlike Grease or Hairspray, they're NOT in weird thousand sharp "guitar keys"- I freaking HATE a sharp attack. (Who the HELL plays blues changes in E concert, anyway?)

The flute/piccolo book for Into the Woods runs a real close second, though. That show is just such fun to play. And, right from page one, it is a challenge. The first note in a low Bb, 1/2 step below the range of a flute (you get that note by putting the end of a B foot joint up against a wall) with ascending minor thirds, tempo di tear-ass up to a six leger line D# (one and a half steps above the range of the instrument. On my thin wall Armstrong Heritage, finger a high Ab, open the upper trill key, add the right hand first finger, and low B key, and blow like mad. (On a Haynes or a Trevor James, try not opening the trill key, but it will be stuffy and sharp.)

I have never played Les Mis - but will be in the pit for that next Spring. I hope it isn't like Cats - I don't care if I never have to play that show again - 'course, the fact that Toby's ran it from April through June, with eight shows a week, made it become work, even sharing the book with three other musicians. I really don't consider Les Mis or Cats a "musical" though; Les Mis is really an opera, and Cats is more a ballet, with incidental singing.

I think my favorite show over all, to watch or to play is Fiddler On The Roof. All the reed books are great fun to play, and there are some super songs and dances in it.

"I'm the German Ethel Merman!" - My all time favorite song line - well maybe along with "So grab your dick and double click for PORN, PORN, PORN!"

Wicked was amazing in Salt lake. Les Misrables was epic in New York but by far Phantom of the Opera at Vegas
was untouchable!

I just love The Music Man. Would love to go back to that time era and see what it was like. The small town and all, I think it would be fun to experience it, even if it was for a day.

LIttle Shop of Horrors, West Side Story, Jesus Christ Superstar, Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Chess are probably my favorites but the exact order changes depending on my mood and what I've seen/listened to most recently. Les Miz has been high on the radar recently between the film and seeing the 25th anniversary concert performance on TV a while back but if push came to shove to pick an overall, all time favorite, I'd probably lean towards West Side Story.


Steamy Dreams, stories by Seeker4

If I was going to do an anthology of my Lush stories, these are some that I would be including. I'll change this every couple weeks or so. This week, some that go back to my early days on Lush.

His Secret, Her New Passion - A wife discovers her husband's secret, and turns it into a sexy revival for herself and him.

The Christmas Angel's Gift - A lonely Christmas Eve turns into a steamy Christmas tryst.

Stormy With a Chance of Passion - An chance reunion relights the fires of an estranged couple.

I don't believe that we are the only two. When the solo saxophone plays it melts your heart. I saw it 7 times far and away the best I've ever seen. I don't think it went to USA as it's based on the fall of Saigon and the troop withdrawl, maybe it was thought to be too un-American.
