Food and Feast in the World of the Blue Bells Chronicles: a Gastronomic Historic Poetic Musical Romp in Thyme: Laura Vosika
Stephen Sheerin was born to play on Broadway - or at least, under it. He´s a musician, a conductor, and his dream is to music-direct a big Broadway musical. After years of toiling in the pit of some of the best-loved (and loathed) hits on the Great White Way, he´s just been given his big break. Can life really be going that well?Of course not - his family is driving him crazy, and his boyfriend can´t seem to get rid of his other boyfriend. Add to that an alcoholic diva, the cheapest producing team on Broadway, and a comatose casting director, and you have some of the other characters buzzing around Stephen´s Broadway break. Then there´s Stephen himself - neurotic and bitchy - who realizes that maybe total happiness is overrated.Narrated by Seth Rudetsky, from Sirus radio and Broadway´s The Ritz; Kristin Chenoweth, Tony Award winner, star of Wicked and TV´s Pushing Daisies; James Wesley from the Rosie O´Donnell cruise ship; Jonathan Groff, Tony Nominee from Broadway´s Spring Awakening; Andrea Martin, Tony Award winner, from SCTV, and currently in Young Frankenstein; Jeff Bowen, Hunter Bell, and Susan Blackwell from [title of show]; Mary Birdsong (from TV´s RENO 911); Andrea Burns, from Broadway´s Tony nominated In the Heights; Andy Karl, from Broadway´s Legally Blonde and the upcoming 9 to 5; Anika Larsen, from off Broadway´s Zanna, Don´t and Broadway´s Xanadu; Billy Porter, from Broadway´s Grease and winner of Star Search!; Richard Kind, from TV´s Spin City and Broadway´s The Producers.

In The Center Ring was written in the autumn of 2003 for the Upper Antioch Grade School Band from Antioch, Illinois, Earl Bush, director. The piece is a musical snapshot of a circus performance, from the madcap antics of the jugglers and clowns to the elegance of the high-wire and trapeze performers. This wild musical romp is certainly a technical challenge, but is also great fun for the performer and listener alike. Above all, remember this is a theatrical piece - so emphasize the dynamics, bring out the inherent comedy and have FUN! This title is available through SmartMusic.
Taschenbuch - 234 - Bloodbuster - 2012 - Italienisch ´Appena Modugno lamb le braccia al cielo, per cantare nuovamente ii ritornello, la maggior parte di quelli seduti gia aveva imparato la canzone: Volare, oh, oh.... Ci fu I´impressione, come se ognuno Si spic-cicasse di dosso, definitivamente, I residui di paure, di poverta, di miserie, del decennio che andava concludendosi´. (Don Backy, Rock and Roll Memorie di un juke box, Shakespeare & Company, 1996) Era la fine degli anni ´50. E la musica in Italia stava cambiando, in tutti i sensi. Stavano per arrivare favolosi anni ´60´, quelli del ´Boom´, e un´ondata di giovani cantanti, ben decisi a rompere i ponti con la ´musica vecchia´ stava invadendo Ia penisola. Con loro sarebbe cambiato anche ii cinema delle canzonette... Fuori i Claudio Villa e i Nunzio Gallo, dentro gli urlatori e i ribelli, gli ye-ye e beat, i molleggiati e i tarantolati: ecco i musicarelli degli anni ´60, protagonisti della migliore stagione del cinema musicale nostrano. Dopo aver scandagliato diversi generi della cinematografia popolare italiana, dall´horror al poliziesco del ´70, dagli spionistici pseu-do-bondiani alla fantascienza degli anni ´80, Bloodbuster si dedica ai canterelii, con la collaborazione dell´amico Maurizio Maiotti, editore e curatore di Jamboree, rivista tri-mestrale sul tema anni ´50160, complice ideale per Ia compilazione di quella che vuole essere una guida, utile e agevole, alla riscoperta non solo di una manciata di antichi film con canzoncine, ma anche di un´ltalia semplice e ingenua, mace e otti-mista, che ormai sembra lontana di quatche millennio. Perch& come dice ii critico Stefano Della Casa, autore di diversi scritti sull´argomento: ´Una canzone non pu6 cambiare il mo s. Pero puo sicuramente raccontarcelo´ II pazzo, pazzo mondo della canzone vi aspetta tra queste pagine Buon ascolto ehm... Buona lettura.

Lola soon finds herself in Madrid, undercover as a performer in a musical play. But when she falls dangerously in love with the target, General Diego de Lon - the ´´perfect Spanish soldier, lover and horseman” - Lola becomes a double agent and the two hatch a plot of their own. Disaster strikes when the plot is exposed, Diego is captured, and Lola is forced to flee on horseback to France, with a dangerous group of Loyalists in hot pursuit.

Mitch Albom creates his most unforgettable fictional character - Frankie Presto, the greatest guitarist ever to walk the Earth - in this magical novel about the bands we join in life and the power of talent to change our lives. It´s an epic story of the greatest guitar player ever to live and the six lives he changed with his magical blue strings. In Albom´s most sweeping novel yet, the voice of Music narrates the tale of its most beloved disciple, young Frankie Presto, a war orphan raised by a blind music teacher in a small Spanish town. At nine years old, Frankie is sent to America in the bottom of a boat. His only possession is an old guitar and six precious strings. But Frankie´s talent is touched by the gods, and his amazing journey weaves him through the musical landscape of the 20th century, from classical to jazz to rock and roll, with his stunning talent affecting numerous stars along the way, including Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Carole King, Wynton Marsalis, and even KISS. Frankie becomes a pop star himself. He makes records. He is adored. But his gift is also his burden, as he realizes that through his music he can actually affect people´s futures - with one string turning blue whenever a life is altered. At the height of his popularity, Frankie Presto vanishes. His legend grows. Only decades later does he reappear - just before his spectacular death - to change one last life. With its Forrest Gump-like romp through the music world, The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto is a classic in the making. A lifelong musician himself, Mitch Albom delivers a remarkable novel infused with the message that ´´everyone joins a band in this life´´, and those connections change us all. The complete list of narrators includes: Mitch Albom, Roger McGuinn, Ingrid Michaelson, John Pizzarelli, Paul Stanley, George Guidall, Mike Hodge, Robin Miles, Christian Baskous, Tony Chiroldes, Kevin O´Neil,... 1.
