12/28 Melbourne FLA

Recommended Posts

From the website for the King Center for the Performing Arts:

The Brevard Performing Arts Center was completed in the spring of 1988. Designed as a state-of-the-art, multi-use facility, the theatre offered a diverse array of programming, including popular artists, Broadway touring shows, classical artists, ballet and contemporary dance, opera, country music artists, family-oriented events and children's theatre. The 126,000 square foot facility includes a 2000-seat performing arts hall, 200-seat black box theatre (Studio Theatre), art display areas, dance studios and rehearsal halls.

The website also talks about renovations done this summer to improve sightlines and the sound system.

It's been reported that the piano is onstage, so we should be getting the normal William Joseph opening set tonight.

CV Cellstream reporters: Only a few tickets left out of 2000.

Tonight's mission - get Jerome to say hello to the stream. The reporters are very intrepid. :P

Tasapio and Invisible926 (I think), photographers extraordinaire, close to front row center. Yeah! Love their pictures!

7:55, and William Joseph's set is starting already....

I enjoy listening to William Joseph's playing on the cellstream, and from the pictures and video I've seen, he's quite the rumpled lil' hawtie. His patter, however, could use some work. Perhaps in his symphony gigs, he didn't need to be spontaneously funny and have different banter every night. However, when you've listened to the same exact jokes a few dozen times, it gets a little tiring. Good thing he's cute and talented, and Clay has more than enough snark for the both of them. :P

The certers have had some later reports that no more tickets were available tonight, so maybe it will be a sellout or close to it.

Ah, William Joseph told that hockey story in New yourk onthe 3rd night. I think someone told him he needed to vary his schtik.

Newland is on stage. eep, this causes a reaction in my stomache that is well, I won't go into it.

We're underway - Recording..... and a big pause before the music starts. Oops, was somebody not paying attention there?

The live piano kicks in, with Felix laying down a steady backing beat...a crowd is milling around the town square with shopping bags as a choir sings... John D. proposes to his girl du jour (cough* she's in for a surprise * cough)... and an angel in white oversees them all.

The comment was that Newland is on stage with Clay in the community chorus.

Is Newland from Florida? I thought she was from California.

Hey, ldyjocelyn, welcome back from your holiday travels!

Sleigh Ride - It's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with yyyyeeeww...

I'm digging the hand motions he's recently started doing on "Let's take the road before us".

No snow falling here - you'll have to bring your big black SUV to pick me up tonight, Clay. :P

Jingle Bells is gliding along like it's on rails - fast and smooth.

I think newland has a house in Florida, and is from Maryland.

I am surprised she is in the show, since she seemed to think so little of it.

Kinda neat that the after-Christmas Christmas shows sold so well!

He sounds wonderful!

Food for thought

Oooooh, if Newland gets to watch him change clothes backstage I'm going to be sooooo jealous! *g*

Love them Jingle bells - ok, I am repeating myself, but that song always lifts my heart.

from Cb:

vignette. abour the traditions of christmas.. and the Mr.. he died a long time ago..telling tommy about how she met him and the magic of that night..as Clay glares at them.. so intensily..repeating every word and action in his mind.. the music starts to play..as he smiles and opens his lupurious lips.. she smiling...so romantic.. innocent..as he watches what is happening around him..he asked if she would like ....maybe just one....his whole voice changes in this song..the private side of clay comes out.. it just flows thru the words and the note.. and the way he releases them.. give it a channncee...as they hold each other and gracefully slide across the floor...knowing that love is blooming.. clay watches every move..every touch.. every eye contact..watching two heart joinging as one.. such beauty is once in a life time. and its bev's time.. oh itwill get you if you give it a chanceeeeeeeee..
