The Grand Marshal


"When the whistles blow,
And the cymbals crash,
And the sparklers light the sky,
I'm gonna raise the roof!
I'm gonna carry on!
Give me an old trombone,
Give me an old baton ..."
Jerry Herman

DAY 198:  Well, today's the day!  We finally start rehearsing Parade.  We're kicking off the nearly three months of rehearsal later this afternoon with a read-through, pot luck social, and a viewing of a terrific documentary called The People vs. Leo Frank.  It hasn't really "sunk in" yet that I'm getting the opportunity to direct such an incredible and "important" musical - one I've wanted to direct since first hearing the original cast recording - but today it starts to become a reality.
