musicals

play, I said:

the DVD player in my classroom is operated with a touch-screen. Since I am a vampire, touch-screens do not recognize me. Also, the class is turning into less of a movie class and more of a playlist. We watched, after a Sondheim unit, some snippets of 40s and 50s musicals that prefigure Sondheim – including “Soliloquy” from Carousel – really a remarkable song: Billy daydreaming about what his future boy — wait, could it be a girl?? — will be like.
