Hey, for what it was, it was decent. In the 80s hair metal ballad genre, High Enough was among the elite.

The song may have came out in 1991, but the 80s in music lasted until 1992.

Haha

Son, sometimes a prominent member of a successful band decides he is too good for his current band and decides that he is only comfortable playing with other prominent members of other bands, so he forms a supergroup. High Enough transcended anything previously accomplished by Night Ranger.

Serious answer: The Travelling Wilburys and Derek and the Dominoes were the only supergroups worth a damn.

I always thought the book from DY was kind of thin, but it's got some terrific songs. "Heart" and "Whatever Lola Wants" are deservedly classics, but in the right hands and with some understanding of its context in the story, "Goodbye Old Girl" is one of the most wistful songs I've ever heard.

My sister choreographed that play, in 1981 for a presentation in Northern California. The director sent a tape to Mr. Adler, and he singled out the choreography as better than the original. My sister was in high school at the time.

Wow.

And as of this post not a single mention of the death of one of Broadway's better composers.

I always thought Fark was full of Philistines and this proves it.

BTW Tommy Shaw's 'Girls with Guns' is a great song

Bob Fosse was the shows original choreographer.

Mr. Adler was just being kind.

Perhaps, but she now has a degree in dance, and that wasn't her first show choreography. Also, 23 years had passed since Bob Fosse had arranged that, and dancing has advanced. So you don't know that, now do you? I think you don't.

Yeah. Actually I do. He was being kind.

Which is a pretty nice accomplishment on its own right. She should be happy at that.

But placing your sisters talents within leagues of Mr. Fosse is silly. And arguing Broadway choreographers with me is silly as well.

Oh, I agree. I felt so silly when I realized that T.M.S/ stood for The Musical Source. I bow to you, your wisdom, your arrogance, and your presumption of knowing the meaning of another's correspondence. Yes, you have expropriated the devil's food confection. I apologize Ms. Fosse.
 
2012-06-23 08:03:57 PM
Sorry but you are never going to convince me he was praising your sisters high school work over one of Fosse and Mr. Abbot's most famous collaborations. Your sister would not even had access to dancers capable of anything close to Fosses work. It would have been impossible.

He was being kind. Nothing more.

But like I said earlier, his even responding is an honor.

Dance nerd fight?
 
2012-06-23 08:54:35 PM
It is not my intention to fight. I also don't want  to insult the talents his sister possessed in high school. But, the praise was the equivalent of Joe Demagio telling a kid his little league team could beat the New York Senators.

It was a kindness given to a child and the child took it literally.

Frankly, if it were true,  the girl would have been on a plane to New York within days of him seeing the tape. 

Anyone that could top Fosse at his best would have been given a job instantaneously.
