Over Labor Day weekend, Mr., the Tilles siblings, and for a spell Brett went to Bad Movie Night at the Dark Room. At the show, it was announced that there would be a live performance of Once More with Feeling, or, for those of you tragically out of the know, the musical episode of Buffy, the Vampire Slayer. Calendars were checked, reservations were made, potential costumes discussed, and assignments of understudy roles were made. Nine of us were slated to go and the excitement was palpable.
Then this nugget appeared on SFist and an announcement (along with several letters to and from the network) on the CounterPULSE website saying all the shows were cancelled. Sure, we were disappointed. But did we let one giant network affiliated with Rupert Murdoch get us down? No. We gathered snacks and marched right over to the Checks' house. Witness our revelry:
I still hold out hope that someday I will see a live performance of "Once More with Feeling," sadly I think that Rupert Murdoch is banking on it. Coming to a Broadway theater near you . . .
