SFO Moby-Dick Video

Sigh.

SFO has a video posted on YouTube with excerpts from Moby-Dick. At the end of the video, you see the fully-lighted interior of the theater and see and hear a cheering crowd.

The implication: Moby-Dick is a great success! Everybody loves it!

The actuality: the show is opening tonight. No audiences have yet applauded Moby in San Francisco.

Please don't do this kind of thing. It's a form of lying to your audience.

Speaking of Moby Dick, I have a ticket for the performance on the 30th, but won't be back by then. We'll be underway down the east coast then. It's for "Orchestra Premium E 106". I'd like to get some cash for it, but that's not essential.
I also have Berkeley Rep and ACT tickets for that time frame.

Off topic, but on KUSC this morning, the morning guy Dennis Bartel was giving a brief discography of American music that Marin Alsop has recorded and he said "....Nixon in China by John Williams, erm, Adams and...."

I laughed.
