TARZAN, Great Music Great Performance!

Yesterday I went to the Musical TARZAN with Music and Lyrics by Phill Collins.
This performance was a lot different than any other theatrical production
I have ever seen,

       'With an 'openings scene' that definitely is out of the ordinary...!!'

(you can simply click the (fat) link 'CLICK HERE' here below to read more)



It is Produced by the Dutch Production Company 'Joop van den Ende Theaterproducties' together with 'Disney Theatrical Productions' I went to the performance in a theatre named: 'Het FORTIS Circustheater' here in the Netherlands(Europe).

In this theatre they have tremendious special facilities because in this performance of Tarzan they have the actors flying arround even above the crowds sitting in the audiance!

The story probably is familiar, it's about a youngh English family that has been shipwrecked and gets lost in the Jungle. The parents don't survive the merciless Jungle, leaving their newborn baby allone in the Jungle. Although not entirely allone because he gets 'resqued' by Kala a female gorrilla that takes care of him. This way he survives and gets brought up by gorrillas.

While constantly looking for his true identity, he is faced with a Dilemma when he has to choose between his gorrilla family where he was brought or accompany Jane and build upa life among people of his own kind?

             'A wonderful theatrical performance by actors Chantal Janzen (Jane)
             and originally Ron Link* (Tarzan), and the rest of the cast where all
             unbelievably proffesional and it must have been a challenge to
             also learn to be acrobats!'


* (Last Minute Information: due to a little accident having
a broken toe, the 'understudy' John Vooys replaced Ron Link during his recovery.)

The decors and Light & Sound effects also where very impressive. For example there was a white cloth hanging from the top all the way down to lying on stage with moving lighteffects, giving it the illusion of a waterfall going over into a spring. It all looked somewhat magical.

And also it goes without saying that the Music and Lyrics by Phill Collins are great and will bring back the memory to this wonderful performance every time I hear one of the songs from it on the radio.

Sorry, that I cannot tell you anything about the very
unusual special 'openings scene' you have to see for yourself!

Happy Home Business IV : Business Plan or Business Model?

Some posts ago you could read about 'Writing a Business Plan', recently I had a little conversation about making music and about the importance of being able to read notes.

'This discussion made me go back in my memory....,'

In the time I worked at a Big Record Company - as 'decoration' - I actually had a Platinum Record from the famous Pop Group ABBA, hanging on the wall beside my desk.



(Because of their Huge World Wide Success,
they got rewarded with so many Platina Records
in so many countries that they probably couldn't
care less than to collect this particular one
from my small country. My country probably only
represented only a small fraction of the
enourmous sales they had with their records.)


As I said it made me go back in my memory thinking back about interviews I saw, reminding me that the pianist of one of the most successful Pop Groups in the World declared that he couln't (or hardly) could read notes!!!!

If I am not mistaken I heard him say (or it might have been an other muzician) that you can make good music without having to be able to read notes...,

BUT that notes are an important TOOL
to be able to Communicate with other Muzisians.

I think that in a Similar way you may be able to do pretty well in Business, and at times it might even be better to work from a BUSINESS MODEL rather than from a BUSINESS PLAN. Because a Business Plan might be less flexible and might create a risk of 'Painting yourself Stuck'

On the other hand I think that a Business Plan has a similar effect as 'Notes' to be able to communicate with 'Third Parties'. Just like the muzician in an orcestra.

Hopefully this has given you a new perspective on how you can create Business Success?

Talking about 'Busness Success'...,
