Nearer My God to Thee

Y'know, after all the times I've seen this movie (and I'm a costumer, so that would be approximately a lot), and after three months of rehearsals and six weeks of performances in the musical, I still get weepy every damn time. Pretty much the point, of course. Yay, catharsis! ;-)

I do love that my replica ring from the artifact exhibit, which I wore in the show as Caroline's engagement ring, is quite similar to Christine's PotO movie ring. *chuckle* I couldn't resist wearing it on a chain to the PotO soirée in Elgin last Friday. (And people who interview me for newspapers never fail to get something wrong. I sang with DOC twelve years ago.) Almost enough to tempt me to make the pink masquerade dress, but not quite. I'm so doing the Aminta outfit, tho.

There's just something so appropriate about a piece from the last musical I was in being similar to a piece of one of my enduring musical obsessions.

Y'know, I think, in Kate Winslet's place, I would have insisted that my contract include a clause requiring James Cameron to spend at least several hours in a ducking booth at the wrap party. I shiver just watching the last 45 minutes.

And now I really am going to bed, where I've been headed for the last hour. Oops.

Excellent point re: Jim Cameron. But we all know he's CRAZY.

I love the costumes in that film.

And the "Nearer My God To Thee" gets me because I grew up singing it and each instrument is adding a voice I know; the first violin is my mom's voice, the 2nd is Nadine Lucas (who sat in front of us), the viola is George Lucas (yes, that was his name...and I didn't notice that it was Master George's name TOO--that they were the same name--till MY George Lucas died and I said so and someone got a shocked look and I heard what they'd heard me say) and the bass line is...random others.

Very cool.

We had a little memorial service at the end of rehearsal on the 90th anniversary. Which of course finished with 35 people singing that hymn, and not a dry eye among us.
