Third Presidential Debate

Tonight is the third and final Presidential Debate before the election. I am not sure what to expect. But I am sure we will hear some pretty interesting things as one candidate trys to solidify his lead in the polls and the others does whatever it takes to get the lead back.

We will hear one candidate say one thing and the other candidate say that it is false. PLEASE do the research for yourself. Do not solely listen to the pundits on CNN, MSNBC or Fox News and let you opinon rest on what they tell you.

Name Dropping: Adam Monley

Vol. 4.
Adam Monley is a good friend from way back, I'm talking early elementary school. We grew-up together in the same neighborhood and I tried my first cigarette on the roof of his house.

We later did many shows together, I was John the Baptist to his Jesus in our last high school musical Godspell! We also sang in many honor choirs and an a cappella quartet named the Eastsiders.

He has continued to on the stage and done very well for himself. He actually did a show with fellow name dropping alumni; Becky Gulsvig. At the time, they did not know the connections in my family to both of them and the fact the grew-up an hour from each other.

Adam has been doing some great things in NYC and across this country.

He has received a great deal of attention for his roles in the orginal Broadway cast of Mama Mia, Raul in Phantom of the Opera and Huck in the Deaf West production of Big River (both were national tours), and recently as Curly in a the Paper Mill Playhouse production of Oklahoma! off Broadway.

Here is an article about Adam.

Name Dropping: Kristin Rudrud

This will not be quite as cool - well it might be - but I recently music directed Little Shop of Horrors at the Fargo Moorhead Community Theatre, and one of the many that showed up for auditions was none other then Fargo's own Kristin Rudrud.

Kristin Rudrud is best known for her role as Jean Lundegaard - William H. Macys wife - in the movie Fargo.
