Francesca Zambello (center), universally critically slammed for her production of The Little Mermaid, has been tapped as director of yet another musical, as if Little House on the Prairie and Rebecca are not enough to keep her busy.  She’s helming First Wives’ Club for a July opening at the Old Globe Theatre in Baltimore San Diego, with a Broadway bow contemplated in the fall. The good news is, the more musical theater Cesca directs, the less opera she gets her hands on. So La Cieca won’t complain.

    when there is a new generation that is worthy of coming forward I am sure both Domingos will step aside. As it is I believe he has plenty to offer. I think we should respect an artist who has given us so much over the years.

    As for remarks about Zambello being a man eating lesbian, I am curious if the person who made that remark has personal experience working with her. I have two friends who have been directed by her (both men) and they told me that her lesbianism was never an issue.

    Is Juliette Greco still alive?

    I personally think it will take a wrecking ball to dislodge Placido. Willingly step aside? I don’t THINK so!
