Gutter Theatrical

I post what I like. Things I like include: books and the people who write them; la belle epoque; comedy and witticisms; music/musicians (especially of the angsty and British varieties); abandoned buildings and places; musical theatre and other forms of nerdery. This is also my personal blog so I write about my life and post my art when I feel like it.
I have a side music blog: hearthemusicraging.tumblr.com


Who Am I, Anyway? Am I My Resume?    Want a secret? Got a secret? Can you keep it?  
It’s my celebrity doppelgänger’s 450th birthday today and I’m as excited as he probably is

Today someone asked me to name some of my favorite musicals.
He did NOT know what he was getting himself into. At all.

I think she had a naivete. That’s how she was able to dominate… because she had no self-judgment, except on this deep level. -L.M. Kit CarsonShe was wonderful to watch… When she couldn’t think of anything else to do she danced. She would kind of dance across the room. She danced all the time. -Fred EberstadtI think Edie was one of those personages. When you came in contact with her, you came away with a deep impression of her. And then she moved in circles where almost automatically with that impression came a story or some sort of an event or a happening. Everywhere she went things began to buzz and happen around her.- George PlimptonShe’s mischievous. Terribly mischievous. And she enjoys collaborating and colluding in this mischief, which is enchanting. So she’ll encourage you to join her in the mischief, and it’s cosmic mischief that is masquerading as dysfunction.- John PalmerThat was her charm, you see. That whenever she talked to you she could just, she put like an energy on you. She had this ability to make you feel like she’s showing herself or concentrating on you, that you’re the only thing that- she’s very interested in you. She just made you feel warm. So, there’s nothing you can do about it except respond. You never could go away from her. You didn’t want to leave first. -Wesley Hayes 



Happy Birthday Edith Minturn Sedgwick (April 20, 1943-November 16, 1971)
