Goose to be cooked

  • CruzSF says:

    In bocca al lupo, Sanford.

  • brooklynpunk says:

    TOI…TOI..TOI..!!, SANFORD…..!!

  • Sanford says:

    Well, thanks. Last night was the dress rehearsal and it was really good, so I’m psyched.

  • Camille says:


    I won’t say break a leg because I am afraid of that but I will say, once more, how PROUD I am of your continued success and the perseverance and effort it has taken on your part.

    Go get them!!

    • Baltsamic Vinaigrette says:

      Maybe break a Legge, Sanford?

      This is tremendously exciting. In the past La C has indicated that she knows a few stars that contribute to these august pages, and perhaps some of you privately have an idea or two about who’s really who; but Sanford, so far as I know, you’re the first pro to do so transparently.

      Pride just took on a whole new layer of meaning.


  • Buster says:

    Excellent! I hope you have a lot of fun.

  • Lily Bart says:

    May your vengeance be sweet, Dr. Bartolo. Have a blast!

  • celmo says:

    Sanford, I’m certain you will have a big success and remember your Anna is listening from high!

  • manou says:

    Fingers crossed, Sanford! Do let us know how it went -- and remember to have fun as well.

  • Ruxxy says:

    I knew him when he was a nobody :) Go Sanford!…and remember….you’re going out there as a singer but you’ll come back as a STAR!

  • Ruxxy says:

    …and as a dear friend told me before a gig a couple of years ago- if it all falls to sh*t- just show them your arse!

  • That’s great Sanford!!!!! We are all with you! You couldn’t have asked for better publicity even if you had hired Mary Lou Falcone!!!

  • Cocky Kurwenal says:

    Toi, toi, toi Sanford.

  • Sanford says:

    I hate stage fright.

    Thank you all for your good wishes. I hope some fo the NYC contingent are able to attend, even if they see other casts. All of the singers are wonderful.

  • Sanford says:

    Oops. I think I gave our doyenne wrong info. I perform on the 14th, 22nd, 26th and 30th, but not on the 24th.

  • Sanford says:

    “The Don Bartolo of Sanford Schimel enlivened proceedings whenever present, with some of the most stylish singing of the evening. Admirable comic timing and sharp diction made his Bartolo a likable relative of some of Gilbert and Sullivan’s similarly pretentious protagonists. ”
