It's from Joseph and his Amazing Technicoloured Dreamcoat... it is Joseph giving economic advice to Pharaoh... I thought maybe Brian Cowen could do with watching it and we all know he's a big fan of MN... eh, eh?

I also love musical theatre. Last show I was at was We Will Rock You a couple of months ago in the West End. Well worth a go if you are yonder in London.

I had a part in Joseph when it was our Christmas production in 1st year in secondary school. This explains everything and I never figured it out till now.

Is Joseph really Donny Osmond? Some of those costumes might have been more at home in the Rocky Horror Picture Show... (I suppose it was hot in Egypt)

Joe has a dream of seven good years and seven years full of pestilence, disaster, plague, flooding, melting of polar caps and assassination of first borns. What was the final message anyway - I didn't get to watch it all.

Egypt goes through that turmoil, after the 7 years of plenty. However, Pharaod, in his wisdom, appointed Joseph, an economist genius in his own right, to manage Egypt through the boom years. As a result of Joseph's prudent management, Egypt has plenty to survive the famine.

In fact, Joseph's brothers who had sold him as a slave and left him for dead so many years before flee to Egypt because they are starving in their own country. They originally don't recognise the supreme economisto as their young brother Joseph. Soon they do and everything is OK, a great family reconciliation.

Anyway, I think its a good economic analogy for the management of the Irish boom years Wink.

In boom times a little prudence is always welcome, as somehow we seem to forget that the good times may not last forever. You sure it has nothing to do with the economics of the Pink Dollar?

Too late for us. Who do we get in to manage the famine years?

A miracle of loaves and fishes might come in handy. Very Happy

Am a Sondheim fan myself.

I've merged the Seanad related posts to a previous thread started on the topic of A Seanad for the 21st Century .

And if you'd like to start a musicals thread, Atticus, Be Our Guest Smile

Actually I'd love to start a musicals thread Kate, but am in much too bad a mood to do so tonight - see data protection thread, which I see now you have already done! Smile

Most of the great problems in life have been addressed by musicals, why you can even go all theoretical and talk about theoretical and societal frameworks ...it's all there. Start with Chicago, as a nice easy one! ...

Watching the Samuel Johnson prize on bbc4 at the moment - I see one of my favourites, Alex Ross' The Rest is Noise is one of the nominees.

Sorry JF, way off topic now.

Hey, all cool and thank you soo much for that wonderful youtube clip, how fab was she, forget all the surrounding crap - Cookie, I'll come back to your youtube clip another time!

Judy's half-sister, Lorna Luft, sang at the "Rufus (Wainwright) does Judy" concert in the West End earlier this year. Enjoyed the concert, even allowing for Rufus being off-key on at least two songs, most importantly on "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"... that really should be inexcusable, shouldn't it?

Rufus' sister Martha was absolutely fabulous, as always, she sang "Stormy Weather" ... seriously, if ever you get the chance to see either of these siblings, please do so...
