Carlo's Mother dies

Sad news has reached us that Carlo's beloved Mother, Leah has died. Our thoughts are with Carlo and his family at this difficult time.

Here are some messages that Fame cast members have left for Carlo:

Lee Curreri:
"Carlo - I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I am glad to have had the opportunity to meet her back in the day - she was really a great woman. I know you're going through it right now, big time, but I hope you can find comfort and peace in the fact that she lovingly and skillfully raised a pretty awesome guy. RIP Mrs. Imperato."

Carol Mayo Jenkins:
"Dearest Carlo - Your sweet, wonderful mother - I remember her so well. She made me promise I would look after you all those years ago. So now I guess I will. So much love to you and your family....Carol"

Erica Gimpel:
I send you much love... your mother was so full of love for you that I know her love now lives inside of you.
Peace and Love to you and your precious family!
Thinking of you,

Fame Trivia - The Most Worn shirt on Fame

First seen being worn by Garcy during the Fame song in "Metamorphosis". The Shirt turned up again worn by Jesse in the Season 6 episode "All I Want For Christmas".

Since then I've noticed Doris Wearing it in the Season 3 epiosde "Consequences". I think she wears it in season 2 but I haven't had time to check the episodes yet.

Then by a member of the band in Season 4's The Ballad of Ray Claxton when Jesse performs.
Someone in the wardrobe department must have really liked it so I'll be looking out for it in other episodes! If you spot it then let me know.

Fame Top Ten Things I Love No 7!

At number 7 on my count down of the top 10 things I love about Fame is the music.
The music and the songs were such a fabulous part of the show and made the show unique. Other prime time shows used music but none the way Fame did. We knew each week that each episode would bring us some new songs songs to listen to and enjoy.

The up-tempo numbers left us feeling good and the lovely ballads helped us identify with what the characters were feeling and often expressed our own feelings.

Only 2 episodes don't feature any actual songs, although they do have instrumental music, and personally I beleive those episodes fall a little flat.

So many of these songs stand the test of time and I love them as much today as I did when I was a teenager watching the show in the 1980s.

Being able to own some of those songs on album was great and gave an extra dimension for enjoying the show. Sadly the albums stopped and some fantastic songs were never released. Which is why I originally started this blog to enjoy and share those songs.

Debbie Allen The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker

Debbie Allen's new musical holiday show:

"The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker is sure to become an annual Holiday Classic. I have taken tradition and given it a new context, fresh lively characters, new music and spectacular dancing to bring a vibrant unforgettable theater experience for all families to enjoy.

Following the idea of the original, its Christmas Eve and the Johnson Family, friends and neighbors are having a grand party. The Christmas gifts are shared and young Kara receives a Nutcracker filled with hot chocolate- her favorite. She falls asleep and the journey begins when the Nutcracker comes alive! She follows him to many lands of wonder: Candy Cane Lane, Egypt, the Rainforrest, Jazzland, Russia and the Land of the Kimona Dolls, China. The entire story is narrated by three wisecracking mice: Harvey, Schmink and Buckey."

Plus, I am going to be in the show! Don't miss this wonderful production created just for you!!

Debbie Allen

Also featuring Carlo Imperato!
