It would be really nice if it was.
Seriously. Next year’s challenge is looking like Battle of the Seasons 3.
They’re really running out of ideas. I see a Rivals 2 in the near future just because of the fights during the original Rivals.
But let’s be real - when is a best friends one gonna happen? Just for Leroy and Mike and CT and Adam. Come on.
Things I need to do this weekend:
You know what I think would be a cool meme?
If your friends left a message in your askbox and you made a graphic pretty much summarizing them/their blog.
But that sounds like a lot of work so
Woke up two hours early to finish a piece of music. Things often hit me while I’m sleeping and I just go with it.
I suddenly remembered Catch Me If You Can is closing. It’s odd that I forgot considering I saw it two days ago. And then I was really sad because it’s a really fun piece of theatre. The actors seem to love the show, the sets are beautiful, and the music is great. Then I thought of Alex Ellis, and how she booked Sister Act and CMIYC on the same day and had to choose between the two; she obviously chose the latter. I couldn’t help thinking how she feels now, knowing CMIYC is closing in a few days and Sister Act will still be on Broadway. I get a sense that the cast really believed in this production and the success they thought it would have. It’s not as if the show set out to be a masterpiece; that was never the point. It was supposed to be a show that people enjoyed, not necessarily for the depth but for the spectacle that it was. I remembered how being in the audience two days ago was almost freaky. The theatre was absolutely packed, orchestra included. We applauded the entrance of Norbert Leo Butz, and we hooted and hollered during Alex’s curtain call (surprisingly, I think she got the most applause - or maybe unsurprisingly, considering her performance of Fly, Fly Away was incredible). I always grieve the end of the show in some sort of way, and I always think about what Broadway is losing. In this case, it’s losing a really funny, passionate, and sometimes even touching production. In the end, it’s about the money, and the show wasn’t making any. Predictably, it’ll sell at a pretty high capacity for the next few days. It won’t make a difference, but it’s nice to know people will enjoy the show in its final days. It won’t be back, not ever, but it was a nice run and a nice try. I just hope the cast finds something they enjoy just as much in the future.
