I went to college with Kelli O’Hara at OCU. A very nice girl with big time talent. So it’s good to see she continues to do amazing things on Broadway. She’s been a Tony nominee before. And is again, this time with her role in South Pacific.
This weekend, a glowing story was written in the NY Times.
Good for Kelli.
AS Nellie Forbush, the sweetheart from Little Rock in the smashing new revival of “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific,” Kelli O’Hara deserves a medal for single-handedly rescuing the ingénue from extinction.
“Kelli is a phenomenon,” said Mary Rodgers Guettel, Richard Rodgers’s daughter. She’s also the mother of Adam Guettel, who composed the songs for “The Light in the Piazza,” which provided Ms. O’Hara with a breakthrough role in 2005. “You don’t usually find people that pretty who can sing that pretty. And she’s grown tremendously as an actress. Kelli was a pretty soubrette a few years ago. Now she’s, well, she’s somebody who can do anything.”
Interesting that News Corp might join Microsoft in a bid for Yahoo!
By the way, I hope to catch up with my friends at Lost Remote next week at the NAB Show in Vegas.
A day after the NY Times reported CBS News was talking with CNN about outsourcing reporting… CBS News denies the report.
“We’re extremely satisfied with and proud of our news-gathering operation,” CBS News spokeswoman Sandy Genelius said when asked about the Times report. “No outside arrangements are being negotiated.”
And we’ll see what tomorrow brings… Maybe another Tupac Shakur exclusive from the LA Times.
