put in our requests for the Nurses' Ball early so TPTB would have
a chance to peruse them before they started writing the show.
And we're announcing our brand spanking new Nurses' Balls Web

1) All Performance - No Plot
can happen." -- Lucy Coe
Our preference for old
musicals is showing. And some of these are repeat requests because
we haven't gotten what we asked for yet.

Re GH/PC: Nurse's Ball 2001 - A blustery day
*Bluster* *AARGH!* Picture Lucy Van Pelt...little blue dress...
dark hair... fists raised.... "I know when I've been insulted!
I know when I've been insulted! Or Edward Quartermaine waving
his finger... "You... deviants!" We have been completely,
and royally dissed to the point of proud defiance by The Powers
That Be. They read that number one reason on our Nurses Ball Top
Ten List, stomped it into a sharp pointy stick and drove it through
out hearts. "All performance. No plot"
cancelling the Ball, their revenge is complete. They didn't even
pick up a one of our suggestions.
we do not believe this was the worse Nurses' Ball ever. The performances
deserve compliments despite the overly dramatic structure. Of
course we are supremely disappointed that one Elton Herbert was
not used at all for this event which screamed for his unique touch.
Oh what he could have done with that roof. Didn't mind the roof,
in fact we wondered why they hadn't saved loads of rental on the
Versaille room every year. Inclement weather allowing. Though
we also wondered why helicopters didn't need to land on that pad
during the emergency.
We were already wondering well If there's this big emergency then
whose going to watch the performances... whose going to give them?
Who will care? Well, thank goodness for Lila's keen taste. After
the usual interminable wait after the so called opeing of the
ball, it was a treat to have John Ingle do "It's in his kiss"
with some of our favorite beefy cast members and their feather
fans. John Jay York excels at this sort of thing. Good they ended
on that up note, or you could have heard the sound of an extremely
large television, cables ripping from the wall, little alarm clock
tumbling off it as it was dumped unceremoniously out the nearest
window, open or not.
part of the Ball was the PC airing. Where Serena's disappearance
was flung at us to prevent Lucy or anyone else from enjoying this
social night. Second performance. Ion Overman as Gabriella Garza
doing "Let Me Entertain You." What the devil was the
fuss about? That's how the song and performance from "Gypsy"
is supposed to go. What were the dullards expecting? You go Gabby,
girl! Work it. Vampire influence aside, if Joe can't handle this
much heat too sad for him. Bet you Chris can catch it.
Alison, Jamal and Livvie do "Love Potion Number Nine".
Well, Allison and Jamal's moves and characterization were good,
Livvie could have used a few more days of rehearsal... and none
of them were really even attempting to carry musical notes, or
anything like that. But it was cute and it at least looked like
something from an amateur talent show.
don't blink but Victor Collins did do a stand-up comedy routine
as he covered for an offstage Lucy. We can't swear to the quality
of the jokes only having caught snippets of one-liners, but we're
counting this as an act anyhow.
Fifth performance. Complaints about this. Mac has to leave why?
Bloody every other person down in the ER. We think Taggert could
have managed without Mac's unofficial talents more than easily.
Lame. Though we see Felicia is addled, but not blind. "Nice
Chest," indeed. Okay, throw Luke in there instead. Way, down
upon the Swanee River, seguing into "That Old Time Rock and
Roll". Not very inspired, though the performances were passable.
the three unoccupied GH Teens. Uh... where was Liz? Didn't even
occur to us to miss her until this second. Anyhow... Three seemed
like too many for the Drifters "Up on the Roof" number.
Should have been a Gia/Nickolas number. The other two carried
their weight. (Well, she does it with her looks, but why shouldn't
she?) but Nickolas was great, voice-wise, style wise and just
being a little hottie. Lucky... well... hmmm... yawn. Again, at
least the song was appropriate to the occasion.
performance... Dara performs "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".
Bless her little heart. Do they keep her on recurring status as
world's losing-ist D.A. so they're assured of one decent voice
at each year's Nurses' Ball.
number wasn't even in the Ball, "Nothing's going to Harm
You" by Steven Sondheim from "Sweeney Todd", sung
by Stuart Damon was brilliant, lovely, touching... and is going
to make a great sound byte.
was annoyingly unidentified, but Stefan was doing his poofy best
to shell out the Cassadine bucks, so we'll give it to him.
note, Maurice Benard... Mr. Sonny "I'm too cool for the stage"
Corinthos, you will never, ever be off the hook until you appear,
preferably in drag and with fruit on your head in that Nurses'
Ball. It will happen!
