Jack & Diane, The Musical

I thought this was interesting. You know the old song from John Mellencamp titled ‘Jack & Diane’ that came out way back in 1982? Well he’s turning it into a musical with Kathleen Marshall to direct and choreograph. She’s a winner of 3 Tonys out of nine nominations so this should be good.

The backers of the musical had this to say

“This is a story about those people who live, love and die on the underside of the American Dream in small towns all across our country. This is a tale, laced with humor and visceral energy, about star-crossed lovers, and their stubborn refusal to give up, to lie down, to let go of the potential their youthful dreams once promised.”

PBS: In Performance at the White House

On February 11th President and Mrs. Obama will host the “In Performance at the White House:  A Celebration of Music from the Civil Rights Movement” that will broadcast on PBS in honor of Black History Month.  Queen Latifah and Morgan Freeman will be the guest speakers with tons of artists:  Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Bob Dylan, Mellencamp, Smokey, Seal and much more.  I’ll probably record it.
