Had a great table read/ performance of this show last night and

excited to get to work on the next draft!

Donnie Darko

One of my favorite movies, but this scene in particular has always been one of my favorite movie scenes ever. I think cause it explains so much about the secondary characters and where they are in the story without words. Plus the song choice works so perfectly with the action.

Thank god for this right now.

It would be nice to claim that the clinky xylophone-like accompaniment of [The Little Things You Do Together] is meant to reflect the brittle hollowness of Joanne and her fellow sophisticates, but in fact it’s the result of where I wrote it: on the Queen Mary during my one transatlantic boat trip. I was en route to deliver the first few songs to Hal Prince, who was shooting a movie in Bavaria, and since ocean liners, like the plays and musicals I had grown up with, were on the way out, I decided to travel in the old glamorous fashion. The purser arranged for me to have a small salon room, complete with piano, so that I could work while I travelled, assuaging my guilt over such luxurious time-wasting. But the ship kept listing to starboard and I unwittingly kept sliding toward it on the piano bench, resulting in a preponderance of treble plinks. Thus is insightful art produced.
