Sorry, I can’t make this parody song go on much longer, but please do attend the tale of Tracy Tyler.
On today’s show Tracy’s cast mate James Nedrud and musical director Jack Cameron come to talk about Sweeney Todd the musical, now in it’s final weekend in Chicago. We ask them about what attracts them to this macabre musical and what they thought of Tracy auditioning as man.
Tracy stars in Sweeney Todd as Beetle Banford, a bad guy who helps the villain get away with his terrible deeds. But like most bad guys, he gets the ultimate shave from Sweeney Todd.
And for those of you who love to hate Tracy, be sure to buy a ticket and see Tracy gets brutally murdered by Sweeney Todd. In the show, the dead bodies get ground up into savory meat pies and with Tracy, that’s a lot of meat pies! Anybody want to buy a franchise?
Women with extremely long fingernails are complaining about the iPhone touch, saying the interface keeps them from using the popular phone. They say its sexist not to make it available for woman with long nails.
But if you have long, bedazzled fingernails, doesn’t it limit you from doing a ton of things, like play the piano or put on contact lenses? I’m sorry, but that argument seems pretty weak, considering they already sell styluses for the iPhone for those who prefer to use a stick instead of their fingertips.
Saudi Officials take a page out off of Sweeney Todd by declaring you can now marry a one year old, as long as you don’t have sex with her. So you can make a marriage contract for your one year old daughter and she isn’t going to have to put out until later, like Mohamed’s wife Aisha who he married at age six but had sex with her at nine.
Police in Australia are crying out – Scooby Doo, Where Are You? A man in a rented Scooby Doo costume invaded a track event. He has alluded police and he used a fake drivers license and credit card to hire the costume so chances are slim that he’ll return it. I bet he’s off in the Mystery Machine with Shaggy smoking weed and planning his next prank.
Kids in Salt lake are now protesting high gas prices because their mom had to cut “cabel” to pay for their gas bills. Hopefully, at least, they’ll learn to spell with all that time on their hands that they won’t be watching “cabel.” The kids might be better off setting up a lemonade stand or work in a Chinese sweatshop to pay for the cable bills themselves if they want it that bad.
The controversial British Gay Heinz Mayonnaise Ad has been pulled due to customer complaints. The ad featured a NYC deli man serving up sandwiches to his kids who call him “mom” and his husband who he kisses and calls “sweet cheeks.” The ad never aired during choldren’s viewing hours, not because of the gay kiss, but because of “new rules from Ofcom that restrict ads for products high in fat, salt and sugar.”
Here’s our idea for a fun night- go have dinner at Big Jones Restaurant, then check out Tracy in Sweeney Todd the Musical- playing Friday and Saturdays at 8pm, June 27th & 28th at the Actors Theater Company at 1125 W. Loyola Avenue in Chicago.
Attend the tale of the Feast of Fools.
