AND NOW ANOTHER EPISODE OF:
Our favorite THEM SONG is HEARD:
MANNNNNDEEE PATINKIN MANDEEEE PATINKIN MANNDEEEE MANDEEEE MANDEEE PATINKINNNNNNN
BARE STAGE – NIGHT A luminescent black GRAND PIANO. PAUL, order the hen-pecked, seek nervous, wiry, PIANIST, adjusts his impeccably greased COMB-OVER and begins an intro with a dazzling flourish. MANDY PATINKIN, has finished removing the NY Yankees cap worn during his crowd pleasing “Sports Medley” and tosses it, as if unrehearsed, O.S. to ROMAN, his DRESSER, who just happened to be the first man legally married in the United States. The beautiful piano music plays as Patinkin pours himself water from the pitcher on the table next to his stool. He turns a page on his music stand, squeezes two exact squeezes of lemon into the water and holds his right hand up, just as the intro finishes.
Paul… count it in, sir….
