golly gosh am I excited..my second visit to Keating! a musical about Paul Keating...it's had a wondrous run..started its life at the International Comedy Festival in Melbourne..and galloped on from there

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keating!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bhazQFBhA0 (when Mike speaks of 'the suit'...Keating wore Ermenegildo Zegna suits....seems Mike now wears really truly Zegna suits now..) ~ there's a funny song at the end..

how I hope a dvd is released..

............? the musical...who would you like to see...not necessarily a figure from politics..

hey...Karl Lagerfeld! the musical

8 hours and 45 minutes before curtain up!

Oh my, but our late great Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau would be perfect for musical drama a la les Miserables!

Tony Blair and Maggie Thatcher would make great Shakespearean style dramas. Blair the Musical would be utterly awful and yet strangely compelling... like watching a car crash.

I'd love to see Velvet Underground - The Musical! Tho' Springtime for Hitler has already been done...!

have just had a note from daughter Sophie...we share a love of Keating! the announcement:

http://www.abc.net.au/tv/guide/abc2/200808/programs/AC0804H001D20082008T200000.htm

I sure know what I'll be doing Wednesday week!!!!

Perhaps if you have pals in Oz you might let them know of this...

I know I'll have to wait until Wednesday week...however I didn't arrive on the planet with much patience Wink
