Musical Comedy


 

I remember where I was when I first heard Greece was in deep doo doo (at a depth not seen since The Treaty of Versailles).

It was a Sunday. I was at the original DuPar’s at Third and Fairfax. I’d brought my NY Times. The front page said it all: Greece was behind with both his landlord and the repo man.

The Greek government faced possible collapse on Tuesday as ruling party lawmakers demanded Prime Minister George Papandreou resign for throwing the nation’s euro membership into jeopardy with a shock call for a referendum.

Ironically, the film Grease was the first Hollywood musical to make a profit in the ten years that preceded its release.
