    Sounds like a tromboon.

    Actually, most of the college stages I’ve seen have been smaller than most of the high school stages I’ve seen. (I live in the NJ suburbs of NYC.) The most awful example I can think of offhand is Minor Latham Theater at Barnard College, which doesn’t even have a left wing or any kind of access from backstage to stage left.

    High-school stages, though, almost never have usable fly space, and the one I went to had (and still has) the light board in one of the wings, 90% of the lighting coming from directly overhead, and the rest at about a 45º angle from a ceiling cove, though that’s been corrected somewhat since my time with a couple of ladders in the house.

    “Ancient Italian”?
     
    Etruscan? Faliscian? Oscan? Umbrian?

    The “Family Guy” version includes the entire original dance music, as-is, and was based on the original Broadway choreography (allowing for the change to a completely different venue). Onna White’s daughter, Jeanne, praised it.

    A. Actually, “Shipoopi” is usually the biggest dance number.

    B. If you’re asking about her personality and attitude, well, I have known women in high positions in theater who are like her. If you’re asking about her lack of spatial vision, heck, I can act about as well as any amateur can (and I’ve been in professional productions in New York), but my wife can run rings around me when it comes to solving on-stage traffic problems. Just like Luann in this strip, she just looks and says, “Do this”, and she’s always right. Me—I understand why she’s right, in hindsight, but I don’t see the answer myself until she says it.

    Actually Bunny Berrigan’s swing recording would be more to the point: https://ia600705.us.archive.org/26/items/BunnyBerigan-ThePiedPiper1934-1940/19%20The%20Pied%20Piper.mp3

    Brings back memories of the summer of 1960.

    Note that theaters nowadays make very little money on the actual movies (most of it goes back to Hollywood).

    The relationship between Rick and his daughter on “Castle” is always fun.

    That’s not a two-piece swimsuit; it’s a bikini. (The technical distinction is whether it reveals the navel.)
