Bob called me earlier tonight to let me know that the movie Godspell was on. I'm watching it now. I hadn't seen the film in nearly 20 years...

... which, coincidentally, is also how long ago Joe M. and I were in an amateur theater company's production of Godspell. Yes, Joe, we're both old.

I'd forgotten that the film was shot in the streets and at landmarks in NYC. There's a certain type of painful poignancy, undreamed of when the movie was being shot, when the camera pulls back and you realize that the place where the characters are dancing and singing the last verse of "All For The Best" is the roof of one of the Twin Towers. :o(
