I’m going back to see The Light In the Piazza tonight; I bought tickets for Dan’s birthday. I hope he likes it as much as I did! 🙂

When people ask me if musical theatre should be taught in music colleges, I reply that there is no need. All anyone needs to study is the second act of La Boheme because it is the most tightly constructed piece of musical theatre that there is. It is practically director-proof: you can’t stage it badly because it just works too well. If you can write La Boheme, you can write anything. I would also recommend studying Britten’s Peter Grimes.

-Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber
