You know how I hate TV? And how I think it's silly that people would schedule their lives around the TV schedule? (OK, since the advent of DVRs they don't do this much anymore, but still.)

Tomorrow night I'm making it a point to be home for a show.

Yeah, yeah, I know. However, it's Chess in Concert, and one of the performers is David Bedella. Not only is it a musical, but I have the most amazing theatrical crush on him.

PBS, and I'm sure it will. It will also come out on DVD and CD later this year.

I lied. The CD is out now. Here's a link to the Amazon MP3 download.

Don't be ridiculous-- I've been out for years. Even my loft doesn't have closets.

If you're going to do anything, do it with drama!

I found out about it partway through, and ran into my office to set the TV here to tape the rest of it. (Couldn't do it in the bedroom; E had a war movie taping on a different channel.) Looking forward to watching it.

I saw Chess on stage at the Sacramento Music Circus years ago. Much as I dislike the outdoor, theater-in-the-round, big-tent thing, it was still a terrific evening.

Aaaaa thank you so much for pointing this out! I love Chess so very much. I might even be able to tolerate Josh Groban for it. ;)

I should let you take a wander through my Chess collection. I suspect I have every recording of it ever done.

Some years ago I vowed that I was going to go see Chess live the next time I found someone performing it, no matter where in the world it was. I did it too, and I must say that the long weekend in Honolulu did not suck at all.

Nice! I've seen it twice, one mediocre college theatre performance (with an amazing Svetlana and a decent Florence) and one slightly better highschool performance. I would love to see a professional performance!

I ran across it while flipping through the channels. I've been kinda wanting to see it for a while. But then I heard Josh Groban. I kept flipping through the channels and came back later. Still with Josh Groban. I guess I'll have to find another version sometime. Phooey.
