Great review, Chris. This cast truly captures the heart and spirit of ACL. We were at opening night of the revival in 2006 and while this cast may not dance as well as the Broadway cast they are far better in "telling their stories". Josh Walden did a masterful job of mounting the show and Gary Beard has pulled music out of this cast like I've never heard at any other theatre in Memphis. Not only did Chris write a great review he hit the nail on the head with T&A. We have the yellow mimeograph paper "program" from ACL at The Public Theatre May-July of 1975. Yes, Chris Dance Ten, Looks Three was originally listed as Tits and Ass. Ghost writer Neil Simon, Marvin and Michael realized they were giving away the punch line and changed the title before the show moved "uptown".
I do hope Memphis will find the time to go see this amazing cast in this timeless piece of art.
I hate Kroger!!! I've tried them all...as far out as Collierville...and I live downtown. "My Kroger" would be midtown and the customer service is not bad there because there is no customer service. If you can find a manager they don't have a clue. There's usually one or no sackers and I can't tell you how many times I've been inconvenienced by the employees having personal conversations instead of focusing on the customer. I'm so sick of full aisles of Kroger brand...they should make it known that they're a discount store if the majority of merchandise is "off brand". The merchandising makes no sense and why do they feel the need to have non-food seasonal items...save those for the people that want to go to Wal-Mart...I DON'T!!! They let all the wonderful employees go that knew our names, had good grammar and greeted us with smiles...instead of "you got cho plus card". I have a plus card but have to drive 12 miles to use full credit. Now they're making the stores larger. That tells me they will also amplify the horrible customer service!!! I hate Kroger!!!
Put Jackie from NCRM on the hostess committee. The Neely's can run the dining hall. There's plenty of gate space at the airport...the athletes can start flying in any time they want. Theres' a couple of permanent vagrants on South Main that can head up the workforce. Bring on the games!!!
The letter said nothing about Cordova being the up and coming Hickory Hood!!!
Yeah, don't look for us if there's smoking allowed at all....wake up to 2012!!!
Breyers did two such cakes. The hard chocolate is throwing me though. So, Breyers may not be the one. However, there's are called Ice Cream Cake made with Hershey's and the fancy one called Vienetta.
I despise KROGER. I live downtown and midtown Schnuck's was like shopping in a NYC market for me. If I wanted seafood I went to Cleveland Asian Market or out east to Whole Foods. Otherwise, I knew where everything was at Schnuck's and I knew when to go so I could park on the first two rows. I've stopped going there now. They are so into their KROGER brand they don't carry half the brand name products I bought before. Thus, the entire clientele has changed. AND, their merchandising is ridiculous; tuna by the pickles by the chips...oh, I get it; it's the tuna sandwich aisle. I was told Kroger at Poplar and Kirby was like Fresh Market. NO, it's just a big version of Union. I put on my Kevlar and went to Poplar and Cleveland...nope, needed a mask and had to throw away the clothes I wore due to the stench. For commodities I've ended up at Laurelwood. It's still huge and I can't get out in less than an hour and STILL come home without things I needed. I spent 20 minutes last week looking for frozen biscuits because I couldn't find an employee and never remotely thought about having a frozen bread case on the bread aisle. But, I'll do without before I go to Wal-Mart and get pissed off because I spend $200 at Whole Foods and only have two shopping bags. I've just had to accept the idea that I can't make a quick trip to the grocery anymore.
