I'll be at an old-fashioned 4th of July barbecue in Pittsburgh with friends and family and watching the fireworks. I just wish I had my 1776 the Musical DVD with me :)
How about you?
I will be joining friends for dinner and a concert before the fireworks; we will be very close to the launch location. Must think about bringing earplugs.
I am aware that the 1776 musical program will be on Direct TV so my neighbor invited me to watch it. I appreciate the talented men vocals and humor. I will browse a history book index and read on the TJ a little perhaps. Can't start a new book now.
Just confirmed 1776 will be uninterrupted on Dish Turner Classics
RE: 1776 DVD what is your favorite, aria?
The representative from So. Carolinas, Rutledge I believe it is.
Yes, Rutledge is the one who sings "Molasses to Rum," and in the movie he's played by John Cullum, who is one of the nicest actors I've ever asked for an autograph.
I really can't pick one favorite. It's been one of my favorite shows for twenty years and I think almost everything in it might be my favorite depending on when you ask me. I don't get quite as excited about "Sit Down John" and "He Plays the Violin," so I guess everything but those is a tie.

Pure genius! :)
I think "Molasses to Rum" is my favorite, but I must say the one I quote the most often is "Sit Down, John"!
...there's Lee....when do you read? Immediately, while listening to Stravinsky
