The 1972 version cuts it out as well. I have yet to see that version though, but researching it I found it is unfortunately omitted.

Very Soft Shoes and Yesterday I Loved You are my favorite songs, and the former was by far my favorite scene in our production.

Lady Larken, FTW. But maybe that's because I fell madly in love with the girl who played her in our production.

I'd have to say the king. He's sort of like the strong and silent type, literally.

I love Queen Aggravain.

Yeah, I played her.


I think it's such a funny role... and a great role for an actress to play.

Aggravain.

The mamalogue. 'Nuff said.


And it's fun to scream "quiet." I heart irony.



I LOVED screaming "Quiet!!!" in my production.

It was my favorite gag, and the audience loved it.
In the one scene after the song "Quiet", when Queen Ag is supposed to yell quiet when Larken and Harry are quarreling, I would yell "QUIET!!" and hold it as long as humanly possible.

One night, after my longest eruption of quiet, my Wizard scribbled on his(her) scroll and shouted: "A New Record!"


LOL that is hilarious! This play was done at my middle school one year, but it really could have been better. It was pretty sad how bad it was.

I've never seen it performed, so maybe that'll make the difference. I've just always felt that the song game outta nowhere.

Maybe when I see our Jester do it, I'll change my mind. But as of now...bleh.


I can't believe that they cut very soft shoes for my production. :evil:

Awkward, but I actually really liked Quiet. Probably because I was chorus and I was one of the sheets, so I got a pretty big part in the choreography how we did it. I also hated Very Soft Shoes. Our Jester was rude behind scenes and he played the Jester so smug that song just seemed annoying and out of place. It really didn't make sense.
