Birthdays & Anniversaries...

The Royal Alex is celebrating its 30th birthday this Sunday with a free mini-celebration The original Toronto cast of Hair will be there performing hits from that musical!!! *fangirl squee* and there will backstage and onstage tours plus cake and ice cream. Where do I sign up????? It has been far far too long since I have been in a theatre. Anyone *cough* Canstage *cough* feel like staging a production of Jesus Christ Superstar??

In related theatre news, the Stratford Festival will be staging Shaw's Caesar & Cleopatra next season starring Christopher Plummer as JC. Hmmm, I'm envisioning a musical...the Seven Hills of Rome are alive...with the Sound of Music.... Set in the politically hostile climate of the late Republic, a Vestal Virgin becomes the spiritual guide to to the seven children of a widowed Roman general... the Virgin and the General find themselves hopelessly in love with each other...will she renounce her vows???...will he survive the proscriptions??? Stay tuned. Music and lyrics from Ovid Lloyd Webber.

Today in history: 79 AD...Vesuvius erupts, burying Pompeii, Herculaneum and Stabiae. Rumour has it a movie is to be filmed about the Vesuvius eruption starring Whorlando Bloom and Scarlett Johansson. Now that is just asking for trouble!!!

Tomorrow in history: 325 AD...the Council of Nicaea comes to an end at which time Jesus and the Holy Spirit are given a rather large  promotion!!!

And the final news of the day of course has to be tennis related. This month's Marie Claire magazine has a feature on the Spanish Armada - yep, Moya, Ferrer, Robredo, Verdasco and Garcia-Lopez - they are all there. Notice anyone missing????  Let's be realistic here. A fashion mag does a spread on the Spanish players in men's tennis and doesn't include Rafael Nadal or Feliciano Lopez!!! That's like Fortune 500 doing a feature on the wealthiest men in America and excluding Bill Gates and Michael Dell. WTF???

Despite the cast of Hair I'm actually really interested in the back stage tour...

I forgot to tell you in regards to Stratford that Mary Kelly mentioned it today and said that if we were interested in going (she's a big Christoper Plummer fan) that she'd drive there and back...and if C&C is RBC sponsored, then her daughter can get RBC discount tickets.

OMGSROFLMAO = Ovid Lloyd Webber *sides hurt*

*double squee* at Pompeii movie with Orly if it's true!!!
