With "The Cher Show" about to hit Broadway:
Some Cher worship - parody-tribute - With the word "gypsy" being frowned upon these days in theater, a more-P.C. version, dealing with the modern social-media-aware Cher -
"PCs, Apps and Tweets" - thanks to Sheree Sano for the vocal!
Some material for the Cher parody lyric was inspired by this NY Times article by Frank Bruni
As “A Chorus Line” at New York City Center draws near, something timely that can be sung during the short run:
Possible set-up: Some people who’d found Ed Kleban a bit less benevolent than he was portrayed in Broadway's “A Class Act” have kidded that real fun for Mr. Kleban might possibly have been seeing the reactions of the 298 people who didn’t win the $100,000 even more than the joy of the 2 who actually won. :). So imagining Ed Kleban addressing the non-winners of the $100,000 Kleban Prize.

Seeing the wonderful, inclusive, everybody-friendly Aventura being associated with horrible actions like those now in the news feels terrible! It's become my favorite place to just "be" outside of NY, and it's always felt so liberal and welcoming to all people! I even did this very sincere celebration a few years ago, when there was a Poetry Month entry call about favorite places in Florida.
"The Lure of Aventura"
I hope Aventura’s name and reputation for love and openness (and BTW being a place to visit truly for everyone, even all income levels) doesn't get hurt by the news.
