    Re: Smash (NBC- Mondays 10/9 C)

    I can't recall if I've said, but I was on Catalina Island, off CA, this winter for a few days, and they have a lot of material on the young Marilyn there. It was a very popular vacation spot with Hollywood stars---Natalie Wood drowned there---and lots of pictures of movie stars of that era cavorting. But before that, in WWII, it was a place where soldiers were stationed, including MM's first husband. Apparently (they say) this was where MM first realized the effect she had on men, she loved going to the beach full of soldiers...the impression is that the hubby was not to happy about this.
    If you ever go there visit the little museum at the "casino" (which is not a casino--apparently in Italian that word means more like "gathering place")--it was a movie theater built when talkies first started, so it has a theater for silent films and one for talkies--lots of early premieres held there.

    PWS, that sounds like a wonderful vacation spot! I can't stop thinking about it! I've been threatening a trip to CA to visit family for years and haven't made it yet. (Except for one trip in the 1990's that was too short.) Just one more reason to keep planning a return visit.

    Congrats to Christian Borle (Tom) for winning the Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Play (for Peter and the Starcatcher) tonight! Now he and his ex-wife Sutton Foster have both won (Sutton has two, but who's counting? ). Very cool!

    Congrats also to the fabulous Bernadette Peters for being presented with the Isabelle Stevenson Award as well.

    It was...I've wanted to go there since the song about it in my teen years... 23 miles across the sea, Santa Catalina is waiting for me, Santa Catalina, the lsland of romance, romance, romance romance... ok enough of that. We went in winter when a lot of restaurants etc., were closed, but it was still fun...and the island bus tours are very interesting. Great for hikers.

    But back to Smash, nice to see our "fake" stage actors involved in recognition as/for real stage actors. Adds some versimilitude somehow.

    Jennifer Hudson is apparently going to be on next season (not sure for how long). Not looking forward to that.

    Oh my. This is not good news. I'm not sure why, but I'm not a fan of JH. Couldn't they find someone else who needs work and who would be wonderful on the show? Let's hope it's a brief cameo.

    Well, we can be pretty sure she isn't going to be in the running to play MM, and I don't think she'd play one of the back up singers at this point. Maybe she's another backer of some kind? Or the sister of the black gay dancer whose name I forget?

    Apparently she will play a Broadway star in a multi-episode arc....I don't know if she will be part of the musical or maybe a competing musical (ie one trying to steal away Derek or the writers?).

    Yeah, of course she would have to have a role in which she could sing, duh...
