Back from the Linbury - Song of the Fishermen

We're back from seeing Song of the Fishermen at the Linbury, which was charming, even if the musical score was a million miles from the brilliance of Aono Jikken Ensemble's score to the Naruse silents at the Northwest Film Forum. Very few people understand how silent movie scoring works - I think they just assume it's more or less a soundtrack. I think I'd meant to invite a fourth person with me, but somehow the evening started with just us three there in the theater. I'm not sure who it was I meant to invite.

I've got my heinous rhymed review of Fram (the new production at the National) up now. Do enjoy it - the review, I mean. Apparently my "warning" about the show (the previous post on my Wordpress blog, an attempt at saving unwary theater goers from losing precious hours of their lives) really pissed off some friend of Wayne McGregor, who sent me a FLAAAAAME due to me tagging the post, which was also about meeting Wayne McGregor in the lobby during intermission, "Wayne Macgregor Is An Ungracious Asshole Who Should Spend The Rest Of His Life Laboring In Obscurity." (Later I amended this to "Wayne Macgregor Is An Ungracious Asshole" as I ran out of space.) May I encourage you all to tag an entry with this phrase so as to drive this person completely mad - I don't see how complimenting someone on their work could have possibly deserved the treatment I got from him last night.

Work tomorrow; no idea what I'm doing afterwards, or if I'll feel like doing anything.
