|Liz and Jane flank the stars and contribute to the ending stanzas of "Oklahoma!".
While blue is my favorite color,
Liz is an absolute knockout in pink . . . and calico . . . and brown . . . and . . .
|A great composition
of this moody scene,
of a Rembrandt painting.
Dream Curly has just gotten
his at Jud's hands,
while Dream Laurey
joins the bystanders
in looking on with horror . . .
and who is that
so artfully backlighted
in the crowd?
|Liz's third and last line comes when, after the women are told to SKAT!
from the upcoming shivaree, Ado Annie states, with some wonder,
that "It seems like there's times when men ain't got no need for women."
Liz opines, "And there's times when women ain't got no need for men."
Ado's final retort nutshells her philosophy towards men, "Yeah, but who wants to be dead?"
|Once burned, twice shy.
Marc Platt, who at least was credited as "Dancer/Cowboy who buys Curly's saddle",
allows that last year, Ado Annie's mince pie gave him a three-day bellyache
and declines to bid on her picnic basket.
Once again our girls are worked into a scene as Liz pensively waits for Ado's reaction
while Jane gives him the once-over.
