  2. In 2016 Leona Lewis earned her whiskers playing Grizabella in the revival of this musical. – What is “Cats?”
  3. This Superhero spun his magic on Broadway in a musical subtitled “Turn Off The Dark.” – Who is Spiderman?
  4. From Trey Parker and Matt Stone, it’s described as “hilarious and irreverent.” – What is “The Book of Mormon?”
  5. Neil Patrick Harris won a 2014 Tony for his role in this musical about a transgender punk rocker from East Berlin. – What is “Hedwig and the Angry Inch?”

Questions to Quam te bene nosse Latin?

April 15, 2017

Here are the questions to the Jeopardy! answers in the category “Broadway Shows in Latin” I posted a couple of weeks ago:

  1. Homo Musicus. – What is “The Music Man?”
  2. Feles. – What is “Cats?”
  3. Mea Domina Bella. – What is “My Fair Lady?”
  4. Quadragesimus Secundus Vicus. – What is “42nd Street?”
  5. Caligae Torquentes. – What is “Kinky Boots?”

I never took Latin, but I was able to figure out a couple of them.  Maybe I should study Latin.  Or not.  How did you do?

It’s April Fool’s Day

April 1, 2017

But I’m not going to write something to fool you or pull any pranks.  Maybe.

I have seen some good ones, though.  Years ago when I lived in Reading, Pennsylvania, I was a faithful listener of the Mike and Dave Morning Show on WRFY radio.  On this particular day, I turned on the radio in my car on the way to work, only to find that the late morning DJ was hosting the early show.  I heard no mention of the change for several minutes.  Finally, an announcement came on air that Mike and Dave were no longer employed by the station.  Now, they (particularly Dave) had a reputation of pushing the airwave envelope – not to the point of being shock jocks, but pushing it nevertheless – so their termination did not surprise me.  But it really disappointed me.  In fact, I was really in a funk the rest of the day.  The next morning, I heard their familiar voices on the radio.  And then it occurred to me that the day before was April 1!  I called them and let them know that they “got” me.  They just laughed and said that was the point.  So go ahead and play your pranks, and maybe leave a comment abut the funniest April Fool’s prank you’ve seen!
