Wow!
Was the whole show recorded? Any plans to sell it? It looks like it must have been very inspiring to work on. The woman - Susie Glaze? - who played the young Jean seems very like her, both in appearance and voice.

Thanks for putting this up, Peter.

I am speechless!! Peter, please tell us the whole story. Is there a video? Is the play being performed anywhere? Can we get a tape through the website?

Thanks, and please give your Mom and Dad my very best regards.

All the best,

Mick

Wow from me too - I was introduced to Jean's songs by my friend Mary Eagle, who now lives in North Carolina, and both she and i would love to know more about about the show, especially if there's a video of the whole thing.

A video of the show would be great. There's also a video available of Mountain Born, a video biography of Jean produced in 1996 by Kentucky Educational TV.

Hi All!
Susie Glaze here, and I'm new to this "thread" thing! Very cool!
If you all are interested, the original cast recording of "Singin' The Moon Up: The Voice of Jean Ritchie" will be available in just a few weeks. I can take pre-orders for it now, and you can contact me directly for mail order here: Contact me here.
The CDs will arrive in mid-June and I will ship the pre-orders near the end of the month. After that time they will be available through our online retailers CDBaby.com and Amazon.com.

Thanks!
Susie

Sorry you thought this was a DVD being offerred- no, this was U.of PA's advert., played on local TV before the opening, and what you saw is all there is with movement, so far. Plans for a DVD may materialize later, but Susie and Steve HAVE made a fine CD which we'll see soon, as she has told you, above. I'm so very pleased with the little show, and we're all hoping and working now to get it "on the road," in cultural centers, small theatres, schools and colleges around the country. If you have any helpful ideas, let Susie know!      Jean
