365 Showtunes DAY 264: ON THE TOWN - New York, New York

Yesterday, in New York City, this show had its first preview.

I don’t know when I get to see it, and that makes me sad.

Here are some guys singing a song from this revival. Only one guy from this trio is playing one of the trio in the show. The other two are someone else. Not sure why. But here’s a look into what’s to come! Maybe, if a cast album of this revival is released before the year ends, we’ll hear something from it.

(Alternatively, if one of you have a copy of the albums from previous productions, please pass it along? I can’t find it anywhere.)

Happy first preview!

I write differently from what I speak, I speak differently from what I think, I think differently from the way I ought to think, and so it all proceeds into deepest darkness.

"The important thing is that there should be a space of time, say fours hours a day at the least, when a professional writer doesn’t do anything but write. He doesn’t have to write, and if he doesn’t feel like it, he shouldn’t try…. But he is not to do any other thing, not read, write letters, glance at magazines…. Two very simple rules, a: you don’t have to write. b: you can’t do anything else. The rest comes of itself."

"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."

Anais Nin. (via danielleracey)

"How many times as a writer have you gotten so caught up in the next step of the writing process that you lose sight of the real finish-line: getting to the end? Are you suffering from a case of go-back-and-gix-it, or worse, page-perfectionitis? Stop worrying about editing or finding the perfect word, and just get to the end."

Gennifer Albin (via writingquotes)
