Long Day's Journey into...Kansas
Well, I have been in Texas today, and Tulsa, and now I am in Kansas. Tonight I will have dinner with the playwright, composer, and lyricist of the musical "Gathering Blue."
Adaptation is such an intriguing art. And in the past two days I have had emails of inquiry about an opera based on THE GIVER, a film of NUMBER THE STARS, and a dramatization of "Fabulous Gooney Bird."
I have also, today, en route, had a cell phone conversation telling me that we don't just need a new pump in Maine; we need a whole new WELL. And the well-diggers have all retired to Florida for the winter. Grrrrrr. Maybe someone could set THIS problem to music and make it entertaining.
I'll try myself, after dinner. I will go have some wine first. It will help.
