Good tidings and well-wishes, faithful readers!
(The title of this post is shared by that of a song from ‘The Pajama Game’ which I’ve recently seen a brilliant community production of back in Rochester last month)
I fully realize that it’s been a considerable amount of time since I’ve updated ‘The Theatrical Tanystropheus’. This is sadly the result of my recent inability to work on it due to the commencement of this semester’s first full week, but rest assured, I plan to supply everyone with a few new posts shortly, which brings me to my next point…
I’ve decided that there’s not enough ‘theatricality’ in this blog, despite its name. As I struggled to find a way to confront this situation, it suddenly hit me: if Mark Witton can use the names and/or assorted lyrical selections of Pink Floyd songs to head some of his posts, I can do the same with show tunes. The name of each post will be explained very briefly after my traditional opening line as I’ve done above (however, this won’t affect my ‘Weekly Wonders’ posts or any others for which I don’t feel it would be appropriate). You may say, ‘Well that’s not very scientific, is it, Mark?” No, perhaps not; just call it artistic licence.
May the fossil record continue to enchant us all!
