Comments on: The Artist’s Journey – Cris O’Bryon http://www.lajollaplayhouse.org/blog/the-artists-journey-cris-obryon-2 Wed, 01 May 2013 15:38:27 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.18 By: Penny http://www.lajollaplayhouse.org/blog/the-artists-journey-cris-obryon-2/comment-page-1#comment-1232 Wed, 30 Jan 2013 00:33:49 +0000 http://www.lajollaplayhouse.org/blog/?p=1652#comment-1232 Great production!

I have a question about what might be an anachronism with the “fat guy” character. He says, “Peace and Love” a couple of times. If the play is based at the time of the Beatles’ first appearance in the U.S., I don’t think the peace movement would have been going on. The Vietnam War is not yet on Americans’ radar screen.

In another place, Edie says, “Shut up” in a way popularized by “Valley Girl” speak a few years ago.

In terms of grammar with Edie’s speech in the first five minutes, I believe she used “Her and . . . rather than she.”

I hope you will take these comments in the spirit of their positive contributions to your outstanding work!

Can’t wait to see the debut.

Two concerns:
– There was a song in the second half that seemed to my non-professional ear to be the same (with different words) as Lenka’s “The Show” (the song from “Moneyball”). I hope there is no possibility of a copyright infringement.
– In the first act, a failing singer asked the heroine to write him a hit, and she asked him how old he’d be. That thread seems to have been ignored in the rest of the play – he was a sympathetic character, and I wanted some follow-up.
