Producer’s note: Some of you may have noticed that Justrose has taken leave of her row house. This piece then, (lifted from the Phantom of the Opera, and bastardized appropriately) is a plea from the Pax Family Singers for JR to rightfully return to her lofty perch...
PAX & FRANK:
Prima Donna first lady of the blogsphere your devotees are on their knees to implore you
Can you bow out when they’re shouting your name?
Think of how they all adore you.
Justrose enchant us once again
Think of your muse
And of the queues round cyber-space!
Can you deny us the triumph in store?
WRITE, Justrose, one more!
MAGNOLIA (in full Opera Diva Drag, Center Stage bathed in limelight):
Justrose, your words shall live again, you took a snub, but there's a public who needs you. Think of their cry of undying support, follow where the limelight leads you!
TAZZY & PIGGY (who join Magnolia side by side decked out as warrior maidens – replete with horn helmets and spears):
Justrose, your words shall never die, you'll write again, and to unending ovation. Think how you'll shine in that final encore.
Write Justrose once more!
So much Drama when a blogger leaves her blog. You'd never get away with all this in a play, but if it’s loudly sung and in a foreign tongue, it's just the sort of story audiences adore, in fact a perfect opera.
JUSTROSE (pushing everyone out of the way):
Justrose knows the world is at my feet a nation waits and how it hates to be cheated!
Light up the stage with that age old rapport; WRITE, JUSTROSE ONCE MORE!!!!
