Let me tell you this: I don't think I've ever had a more aesthetically pleasing evening as I had Friday night. It made me smile, it made me laugh out loud, it made me cry, it astonished me musically. I've heard Bernstein, Rubenstein, Bobby Short, Beverly Sills, Pavarotti, Dizzy Gillespie, Peggy Lee, and Ray Charles, and hundreds of others, and I have never seen or heard anything like that. I do not understand why this work and this idea has not permeated popular culture.
