I thought you became enchanted with her a long time ago... Around the time you found out she used puppets in her stage productions... Didn't we watch an interview of her with Charlie Rose or Bill Moyer a while back?

Totally Off-topic...

I tried to call last night, but, obviously, didn't get you. Are you gonna be home tomorrow evening after 9? Or would tonight work?

Not sure. I'll probably crash soon, but feel free to try me whenever during the week.

I believe it was Bill Moyer, and yes, I was quite taken. Still, I fell in love with Bjork all over again this past summer when she performed Hunter on stage.

The funny thing about the interview was that it was insomnia viewing. I remember very little about what she was saying but it left a very deep impression on me.

I just remembered: The Lion King stage show is coming to Boston, isn't it? She was the original director/art director for it, and so far as I know, it's still her vision on stage. In spite of it being spawned by Disney, maybe it would be something you'd enjoy?

I'm not sure that it hasn't already been.

It's always a difficult balance for me when something has the Disney name on it, but I'd probably love it.

I did a search on the web and came up with this. Looks like you've got plenty of time to consider whether you would like to go after all. http://www.broadwayinboston.com/html/shows/lion_king/

Having seen it (the original production in NYC rather than the traveling; don't know that there's any real difference, though), you'd love it. It's a far better telling of the story than the film was, which isn't saying a whole lot. Beyond that, though, it's some truly gorgeous choreography and synergy of puppetry, dance, set design, music, and visual art that kind of sweeps the viewer in. If you're not taken by the story, it's entirely possible, I think, to just ignore it and focus on the art.
