Marvin Hamlisch!

    Tony award winning composer, Marvin Hamlisch, came to see our show this afternoon. Um, no pressure, right? I mean he only did a little thing like write the score of our show.  


   Anyway, it was a great show. The audience was awesome--maybe partly because it was announced that Mr. Hamlisch was present, giving people a little more incentive to laugh and clap--but, I like to think it was because the show was pretty great too.

   Mr. Hamlisch was very kind and funny and told us he loved the show and really appreciated how we made it our own. If you'll notice, we are all in our ACL robes (we change right from our finale costumes into those backstage before we even go to our dressing rooms); Mr. Hamlisch noticed, too, and was pretty upset that he didn't have one of his own.  We would have offered one of ours, but they were literally the only thing that we were wearing...

  Pretty cool that he stopped by, though, huh?!?!

Jess, that's so cool! I bet Colt wouldn't have minded doing without his robe so Mr. Hamlisch could have one. It is Colt on the far right, correct? If you look at the picture, you can see that's a lot of leg he's flashing!

Wow! That's pretty cool! So he wrote the score back in early 70s? He must have been very young! Miss you!

Um, that's not incredibly super awesome or anything? And I love the little tangent about the robes...that's so funny!
