Bugs, the Bowl, and a Babe
Remember that Bugs Bunny cartoon where he got ticked at the tenor, so he pretended to be a conductor, and made the tenor sing until he brought the hall down on himself?
That took place at the Hollywood Bowl, which is kind of cool, since my wife will be performing there next month.
The Bowl has hosted some amazing talent over the years: Sinatra, Bernstein, Pavarotti, Streisand, Stravinsky, The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Abbott and Costello, Baryshnikov, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, as well as the aforementioned rascally rabbit.
Oh, and did I mention, Catherine Gaffney?
Bel Air Presbyterian, our home church, will be holding its Easter service at the Hollywood Bowl this year, at 11 am. And Catherine will be acting in a monologue as part of the service. Good friends Chris and Helen, and Ray and Karen will also be performing as part of the Choir.
I think that the Beatles made their Bowl appearance as part of a church service as well. Yes, I distinctly remember seeing footage of hundreds of women being slain in the spirit by that posse of pentecostal preachers.
Come down to the Bowl on April 16th. Admission is free.
Just my thoughts,
