This is, actually, not the first time "The Sound of Music" has been performed at the Mountain Play. I saw it there in 1985! Maybe you need a new fact checker.
Recently read your previous article "Climb Ev'ry Mountain (May 15-21). In the article you state "director Jay Manly stages "The Sound of Music" for it's very first run on the mountain". I feel I must tell you that "The Sound of Music" was done on the mountain in 1985. I was there and it was wonderful!
Hmm. I think they ripped the beat from Rick Ross's BMF, but who's counting.
By the way - these artists are amazingly cooperative yet fiercely independent- with a strong streak a
capitalism' , which is refreshing these days!
Thank you, Gabe!!! Can you tell I'm not a U2 fan?
You're right, Erin - I blew it. Fixed above. (The actual line is "We get to carry each other," from "One.") Sorry.
Nominal and trite? Aren't you just the art critic. Way to place unnecessary context on an otherwise heartfelt piece of art. It is not, in fact, a U2 lyric. But thanks for putting that terrible reference into the minds of viewers before they even experience the piece.
So proud of you Roman. The show is going to change minds and open eyes. I love you and what you've done!
This is seriously unique and creative mural art. A ' one moment-in-time 'show - one night only, that you don't want to miss!!
And the only black person, a women, was on Ben Harper's guest list?...White punks on Dope and Alcohol ..And yuppies with no common sense....I'll see you at S.F's Stein Grove or Hardly Strictly Bluegrass three days and pay zip..Or WIndsor Green for Charlie Musslewhite...And all the "swells will be present."..Thanks for writing about a place that had few people until the weekend....Allowed charges of $10.00 for two cookies, presented a shortage of clean up facility stations, long lines to many flooded toilets, trash cans overflowing and stupid people...Sounds like Haiti without the blacks and gunfights.
This is one uuuuugggggglllllyyyyyy dog
Bookstores are more than books. They are places for people to gather in community. Mackenzie Bezos played a role in taking away a safe place for women to gather perhaps by her silent complicity during the lawsuit. Today the ethical thing for the Bezos to do is to give back the Amazon name to the Minneapolis women’s bookstore along with financial restitution. As we all know, the Amazon legacy is to stand up to bullies and fight for the underdogs.
The name Amazon was stolen from Amazon Bookstore a feminist bookstore founded in 1970 in Minneapolis, MN. In 1999 the Amazon Bookstore for-profit collective sued Jeff Bezos for trademark infringement, plus staff time and money lost due to customers and suppliers mistaking their store for the Web retailer.
When Jeff Bezos stole the Amazon name, he encouraged his lawyers to interrogate a store co-owner while she was under oath about her sexual orientation and that of her staff! This week Copperfield’s Book Club hosts Mackenzie Bezos who typed a trite book about four women. I want to know how she feels about the women whose lives and livelihood she helped trample. I also want to know how Paul Jaffe and Barney Brown would feel about a corporation selling books using Copperfields.com. I think these are important musings for small independent bookstore owners and their customers.
The fact that this story is posted and has both positive and negative comments shows Mr. Briano has had some measure of success. Theater will die if you don't get people talking about it and going out to see the productions. He seems to be leading when no one else wants to. Briano should be appreciated and helped. Perhaps a list of which companies opted out of consideration or which were included might help. It never helps to be mean. LGygax
Sorry, E.P.A. abatement is forth coming...Things change and water quality by the Fed's upon the NorthWest Coastal Rivers and tributaries cannot be circumvented by emotions....The failure of Monte Rio residents and business to pump sewage is tantamount to crimes against the environment....All uphill into a non-existant sewer pipe and water treatment Center..The County refusal to provide permits or prior Red-tagged buildings and parcels, has demolished app. one-fourth of the former buildings...All were similar as low lying along the Federal Russian River, U.S. Army Corps Warm Springs Dam Hatchery, Mill Creek, Felta Creek, Green Valley Creek, Mark West Creek, and DutchBill Creek,,,App. nine billion dollars annual is spent now, from Santa Cruz to Canada for water quality. Further operation of the Rio Theater may subject the owners to criminal prosecution by more ground water pollution. And inadequate toilet pumping service for patrons...Watch your money.....
Erma and Daniel have created so many venues that have been taken from them by people with more money behind them. What pisses me off is that they have NEVER BEEN GIVEN CREDIT for ESTABLISHING these places as good venues for music. Erma and Daniel should be recognized as the people who saw the possibilities and made it happen in these places. No one could have been sure it would work at the Masonic, the Seafood Peddler or the Larkspur Cafe without their insight and hard work.
That said, Sweetwater is amazing, as is Terrapin and I am happy for their success. Could we have some appreciation that their success is because Erma and Daniel made them a viable venue in the first place?
Awesome piece! I love Samvega!
Successful professional actors rule!
I wonder how come they haven't called on some of Sonoma County's most successful home bred actor's to date. There are so many of them that I am sure would really enjoy participating and voting. I can think of quite a few incredibly successful professional actors and actresses that have come out of Sonoma County throughout the years and go one to be in many Broadway Shows that still reside or travel back to Sonoma County often.
