Thanks for the update. Sounds very promising. Poor Burt looks a little worse for wear in the picture, but maybe it's just bad lighting. Of course, doing all he's doing at 82 years of age, he can look however he wants.

It's NOT the lighting - it's his healthy eating habits and lifestyle! ......... A diet of double cheeseburgers, fries and chocolate shakes could physically round things out and plump things up! (motivation for me to drop a few!) .......... I'm betting that Burt's "healthy choices" will keep him going for many more years .... and .... provide us with so much more great music! ..... May "The Gift Of The Magi" be just one of many successful projects that lie ahead for Burt!

If anyone deserves to live forever, it would have to be Burt. His drive and desire to constantly create new music for the world to love and enjoy is astounding. Think of his contemporaries. You never hear of most of them. They stopped creating music years and years ago, let alone create a new Broadway show while in their 80's. I wish Burt was 30 years old and starting his unbelievable career all over again!
