Attention friends: I am world famous

Ladies and Gentlemen, it just came to my attention that I AM THANKED IN THE INTRO TO A REAL BOOK.

Read it and weep.

Yes, my friends, that is me, providing valuable research assistance so that the world may know more about the great American art form, the Broadway musical. So should you be browsing the "performing arts" section of your local university or public library, pick up a copy of Our Musicals, Ourselves: A Social History of the American Musical Theater and know that I helped put it there. I like to think of it as my way of giving back just a little.

(Ok, all kidding aside, how cool is that?!)

ps. Google Books is amazing. You can read the entire text of many books online. It is particularly great for doing opera research, as it includes many dissertations and long out-of-print books.

    Congrats on the book-thanking.

    I hope you're having fun with the Amarillans! Tell Mila and friends I said hello.
