CITY ISLAND: JAPANESE EDITION?

Click here to read a moderately interesting interview with me and Andy Garcia, conducted for a publication called Hosokinema, which sounds awfully Japanese to my ears. Well why not? Thank you to the reader known as JC for finding this one.



I'm off to Connecticut for a few days where a musical play that I wrote is having its very first production. "Buddy's Tavern" is a musical version of my movie "Two Family House"--that movie was released in 2000 and the next year we began work on musicalizing it. My composer Kim Oler and lyricist Alison Hubbard have a good deal more experience in the theater than I and thus were mildly taken aback when I suggested that we could write and produce the show in about a years time. Gently they explained to me that the pace of the theater world makes the pace of the movie world seem positively frenetic. Indeed the word that pops to my mind that best describes the process of writing and mounting a show would be: GLACIAL. Nonetheless, seven plus years later our musical is having its first signs of life at a theater in Connecticut called "The Spirit Of Broadway." Click here to see some info on the show and its upcoming run.



Now dig this...
