Spam at Playhouse Square Center[edit]

The link I removed had nothing to do with Playhouse Square Center. I resent the tone of your edit summary, but thank you for adding a relevant link. --Confiteordeo (talk) 20:54, 25 October 2008 (UTC)


Ok tnx, maybe I'll add something about the name in the main article. --Kasper2006 (talk) 08:15, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

reply to comment regarding Southern Theatre (Columbus)[edit]

I have replied again to your message. Here it is below:
Ok, I will take your word for that, you seem to know have a better knowledge than me in this area. I did not realize it had to be a theatre built within those dates. I guess, I was misunderstanding the actual definition of a palace theatre. Thanks for taking the time to explain it.WackoJackO 05:01, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

I've reinstated the anecdote on the Toscanini page. It was in one of Harvey Sachs' books. I've listed a citation request and will add the reference when I get home.THD3 (talk) 10:35, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

ASIN numbers[edit]

Hi. I see you are also working on the discographies, which is great. My understanding is that we are not using the Amazon ASIN numbers on WP, because they are commercial and we are not supporting any particular retailer. Is that your understanding? Best. --Kleinzach 08:26, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Yes that is my understanding and I don't use them, but previous editors have posted them. Mostly I have focused on the Tosca page so far. But when I get a chance to expand some of the other pages I'll replace the Amazon mumbers with catalog numbers when I can. Markhh (talk) 06:15, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Page move[edit]

Hi. NEVER try to "move" a page by copy and pasting what other people wrote to another title. That messes up article history, and removes the required attribution of who wrote what. What to do then if you think something should be at another title? See Help:Moving a page. Hope this helps. -- Infrogmation (talk) 17:26, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Hi. It looks like you're familiar with the "move page" function and have used it in the past-- good! But you also sometimes did "copy and paste" pseudo moves-- not good! Please be sure to use the "move page" function consistantly when moving an article-- especially any article that contains any text or work by someone other than yourself. I undid your moves of the Saenger Theatre articles for New Orleans and Pensacola. You may be correct that another title would be better; I undid simply to clean up/restore article history, per Wikipedia policy. See the comment I left at Talk:New Orleans Saenger Theatre. Thanks for your work. If you have questions about Wikipedia policies and practices you can't find an answer for, ask. Cheers, -- Infrogmation (talk) 17:59, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Fox Theatre[edit]

The title of the article is "Fox Theatre (Fullerton, California)" - there is no other use for that title.

Thanks for your contributions on the Mark Hellinger Theatre. They were good.

Would you please take a look at some other articles about theatres that I have worked on and let me know if you have any suggestions on those?

Theater article title format[edit]

You have moved a number of theater articles from "Theater xxx (city)" to "Theater xxx (city, state)", citing reasons of standard U.S. theater disambiguation in the edit summary. Can you expand on your reasoning for doing this?

I can see the reason if the same theater name is used in two cities of the same name, but beyond that rare instance (such as the State Theater in Portland, Oregon, and the State Theater in Portland, Maine), the city by itself would be enough to disambiguate.

Even if your "(city, state)" renaming effort were accepted as the right way to do it, the theater articles do not all reflect this naming style. Some apparently get a pass, such as Palladium (New York City) which for some reason did not get moved to Palladium (New York, New York). The Hollywood Palladium has not been moved to Palladium (Hollywood, California) or Palladium (Los Angeles, California). Others get to 'own' the main article title even though other theaters of the same name are pushed to "(city, state)" disambiguations. The Paradise Theater in the Bronx does not have a parenthetical title even though Paradise Theatre (Chicago, Illinois) does. The Lyric Theatre (New York) has only the city (or is it the state?). Similarly, the following non-U.S. articles seem to buck the overarching format for the U.S. articles: Lyric Theatre (London), Lyric Theatre (Belfast), Lyric Theatre, Dublin and Lyric Theatre, Sydney. Finally, the boroughs of New York City are often accorded a status equal to that of a city, as in Kings Theatre (Brooklyn, New York), when it is actually Kings Theatre (New York, New York).

All of this is because the Harris Theater (Chicago, Illinois) is up for FAC, and I question why listing the state is necessary, as there is really only one 'Chicago' worth noting. I would like to see a very well thought-out reason. Binksternet (talk) 04:48, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

I personally find the City, state thing totally unnecessary and a little irritating when searching for things. With categories too. Dr. Blofeld White cat 14:43, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Links to NBC Orchestra[edit]

Hey Mark. I think some articles wikified to the NBC Orchestra are in fact supposed to go to the NBCSO. You might want to check the "what links here". Cheers.4meter4 (talk) 19:03, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! I checked all of the links. Most of them were correct, but I made changes where necessary. There was an in-house orchestra at NBC prior to and separate from the NBCSO with some members belonging to both. There seems to be no one name for this. Sometimes its referred to as the NBC Orchestra, sometimes the NBC staff orchestra, and the NBC house orchestra. NBC also had a West Coast studio with its own in-house band, to add to the confusion. But for sure, most references to the "NBC Orchestra" are about the Tonight Show Band. Cheers, Markhh (talk) 19:51, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Mark for taking the time to fix things where needed.4meter4 (talk) 19:57, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

La bohème[edit]

Hi - I spent some time trying to find who added the Pelletier recording that you expunged from the article but gave up. However, Operadis comes up with the goods here and I think you'll agree that it isn't a hoax (unlike the recent spurious additions to Don Giovanni, Faust discography etc. which have been plaguing us recently). SE indicates that the recording is of excerpts and was made in a studio rather than at a performance at the Met. I restored the recording and have added a ref and more detail.

Fantasia article[edit]

Hi there! For the Design and animation section, what do you think would be useful information to include? The typical development of a segment from its concept to drawings to the film print? Or the types of animation techniques used, such as the multiplane camera used on the Ave Maria segment, etc? Any thoughts on these or other ways the article can develop for possibly GA? Would like to hear your thoughts. Regards. LowSelfEstidle (talk) 18:03, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello? You say the 2000 DVD is an extended version? I think not! the DVD I have looks exactly the same as the one I used to have on VHS (with the exception of Taylor's lines redubbed by Corey Burton), that is the 1990 restoration version (with midway title card at beginning of film and orchestra leaving scene during that version's credits). you may be refering to it's Fantasia Anthology release Visokor 18:27, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Ok, i got it, now. the Disney Classics edition was released on November 27th 2000, in the UK as far as I know. I never saw the original roadshow version until last year when I got the Fantasia 2-Movie Collection (on Blu-ray)Visokor 06:35, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Hi there. The Fantasia article is definitely on the right track, but it does need further work, especially with the segment descriptions and the Development sections. I do look at the Culhane book here and there, but it is difficult picking out bits that are useful for the article. I seem to have less time to work on it these days, too. But certainly, a peer review at least will help. LowSelfEstidle (talk) 08:55, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

What would also be of great help is to listen to the audio commentaries from the DVD/Blu-ray and add some information from there, too. I need to get a copy of one and have a listen. LowSelfEstidle (talk) 12:33, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

By "descriptions", do you mean Taylor's introductions to each segment? Oh, And I wanted to discuss about the home media, the 2010 release I have has stuff I had not seen in the Pastoral Symphony in previous home media releases (scenes affected by "pan-and-zoom" have been reverted), though the Sunflower edits remain the same (such as the carpet rolling out by itself), mind. Visokor 22:32, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Ok, here's the one for the Sorcerer's Apprentice: “And now we’re going to hear a piece of music that tells a very definite story. As a matter of fact, in this case, the story came first and the composer wrote the music to go with it. It’s a very old story, one that goes back almost 2,000 years. A legend about a sorcerer who had an apprentice. He was a bright young lad, very anxious to learn the business. As a matter of fact he was a little bit too bright, because he started practicing some of the boss’s best magic tricks before learning how to control them. One day, for instance, when he’d been told by his master to carry water to fill a cauldron, he had the brilliant idea of bringing a broomstick to life to carry the water for him. Well, this worked very well, at first. Unfortunately, however, having forgotten the magic formula that would make the broomstick stop carrying the water, he found he’d started something he couldn’t finish.” It may not be appropriate to put something like this in the program description, but it can be put in as a reference instead. Visokor 22:49, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Sorry I was not entirely clear. I meant using the extra audio commentaries by John Canemaker and Brian Sibley to use as references for the "Development" section in the article. I'm sure they talk about the segments that are just ideal for the article in terms of design and production. Thank you for giving Taylor's introduction, anyway! I think that for the Video section, there is a little too much detail. I don't think we need to include stuff about 1080p and what type of audio codec is used, etc. LowSelfEstidle (talk) 22:58, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Towards the bottom:

"As part of its expansion, Reliance MediaWorks has acquired Lowry Digital, which will bolster the company's restoration work. The company recently restored versions of "Fantasia" for Disney and some Marilyn Monroe films for Fox." I also found a Reliance corporate PowerPoint presentation, but figured the article works better. I did add a new ref for the editorial portion of the sentence. --FuriousFreddy (talk) 23:07, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

That's why I added the second ref, which is a DVD/Blu-Ray review that compares the content of both versions. The Variety article is to reference the Lowry Digital restoration. --FuriousFreddy (talk) 23:22, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Hey Markhh, hope all is well! I am continuing to work on the Fantasia article after looking at more sources, researching, etc. so maybe soon one day we could get this for a review. Just wondering about any suggestions you may have? I plan to work on and clarify the Production section further since there is plenty to add, plus reaction from Stravinsky and Disney, the preliminary meetings, special effects, etc. Cheers. LowSelfEstidle (talk) 23:00, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply, and feel free to make changes! LowSelfEstidle (talk) 09:02, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi Markhh. Thank you for going through the additions. Kudos!

  • Maybe "stereophonic surround sound", "stereophonic and surround sound", or "multi-channel surround sound" would be better?
  • I agree that there needs to be some explanation in the lead regarding its reaction now. In a working text file I have used "Fantasia has since earned worldwide acclaim through multiple re-releases since 1942, with its footage and soundtrack being removed, modified, or restored in each version." Maybe that is better? Or "earned critical acclaim"?
  • The Philadelphia Orchestra Association court document (which is already used a source in the article) and in the Controversies section reads that the Association wanted to claim half of the $120 million in video profits. So it might be good to cite the amount in the Video section too.
  • Yes the last bit in Origins is a little confusing; I realised this when I submitted it. In short, Disney wrote to Taylor on 3 or 4th August that he could not work on the new feature because of Bambi, new studio, etc. But after a change of plan, he first contacted Stokowski to return (18th August) then asked Taylor to come. I will try to make it more succinct. If not, then it wouldn't matter too much if removed, I guess.
  • I only came across two sources (Solomon book and the LA times article, that was written by Solomon) that said the idea for The Sorcerer's Apprentice came about in late 1936. Though the majority of other sources say that it was early 1937. Either way, the rights to the piece was definitely enquired about in May 1937, and obtained by the end of July. It might be worth putting it back to early 1937 (with a source) or just start the article about matching classical music to animation and then about getting the rights to it?
  • Speaking of which, Sharpsteen, David R. Smith and the Culhane book say that Sorcerer was never really produced after Mickey's decline, per se. I'm not too sure on how to word it, but I will continue reading things about this time. Also, I'm not sure if "deluxe" is the right word to use. "Elaborate", maybe?
  • Thanks for explaining about the LP records. This was just a case of writing what the source was saying. It's probably best to leave that one out.
  • I think the information about the film not being seen as a children's film be mentioned in one or two sentences. Are the sources used in that paragraph truly reliable to use?
  • For me personally, I think the Credits section should be removed, with the noteworthy artists to be mentioned in the Design and Animation section, maybe? Regarding the specific titles of the pieces in that box, we could use a track list used on the soundtrack and put it in the Audio section? If the census is to keep, then I can surely live with it.

There are some more things noteworthy to add, like:

  • Special effects. I have some information in a text file and will probably add in soon.
  • The proposed sequel. Maybe something about what they would have been about, artists on the project, etc? The Additional Material section could do with a little expansion.
  • Reaction from Igor Stravinsky.

Any additional thoughts or things to add?

Best, and thanks for your helpful edits/commentary. LowSelfEstidle (talk) 21:43, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi there! Could you clarify something for me also? We all know that Fantasia was released in digital sound in 1982, but according to some sources I have come across like this one, they say Fantasia was the first film to be presented to the public in digital stereo on 8 February 1985 at the Plitt’s Century Plaza Theatre in Los Angeles. Why wasn't this so in 1982? Maybe it wasn't in "full stereo"? This also needs to be mentioned in the article. I'm confused! Best, LowSelfEstidle (talk) 15:44, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Spelling: Theatre District, New York[edit]

The move discussion was closed without alerting editors at the relevant Wikiprojects to join in. It has long been the consensus at WP:THEATRE and WP:MUSICALS to spell the word "theatre", in part because theatre professionals prefer this spelling throughout the English-speaking world, and because this spelling it is not wrong anywhere, while "theater" is wrong in many places,such as the UK. BTW, I am an American from New York City. Note that nearly all of the Broadway theatres are called "X Theatre". I have re-opened the discussion on the talk page to see if we can get a wider consensus on this issue. Thanks! -- Ssilvers (talk) 04:06, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

The Hallelujah Trail[edit]

Damndest thing about this film. I vividly remember seeing it with the Cinerama triple projector system in 1965, recently wrote movie technology historian Martin Hart about it, and received word from him that I couldn't possibly have seen it that way. Beats the hell out of me because I do remember the three crossed beams very clearly and it was the only time I've ever been in a Cinerama theatre, unfortunately. Wonder if I'll ever solve that mystery. Hart tells me the original projectors were out of the theatre by then. Maybe I stepped into a parallel universe that night at the Loew's Capitol Theatre in Manhattan. Cinerama Comment (talk) 20:01, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

I've been making exactly the same guess as you, that it was a short and that they hadn't dismantled the 3-projector setup but left it intact along with the 70mm rig, if for no other reason than to eventually show old Cinerama films again with the original presentation, and I saw a short that way. Beats me. Cinerama Comment (talk) 21:24, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Please do not remove sourced material from Wikipedia articles without an explanation on the talk page as to why you are doing so, and a consensus to do so if necessary.

Also, unsourced material should be deleted only if you think it is false. If the material is likely to be accurate, but is simply unsourced, the proper thing to do is to mark it with a "citation needed" tag.

Regarding the deleted material, both Stallone and Winkler have denied the stories that they worked at the Kings. Not sure about Vereen. For sure he's been quoted directly that his mother worked there. Best, Markhh (talk) 03:05, 24 April 2015 (UTC)


Hi! Thanks for you patrolling my recent edits concerning G.F. Handel. Yet I wonder why you changed my edits on the Wikipedia page "Serse" because I cannot see any mistake on this page. Furthermore, if in your opinion Herodotus isn't an reliable source, I will find more reliable sources, but please inform me on my talk page before deleting parts of my edits.

I would be very glad to hear from you soon. Greetings,

The Count of Zielin

Hi! Thanks for your very quick and very kind answer. I was simply very keen on finding out why my edit was deleted because I've already written it twice and both times it was deleted.

Metropolitan Opera National Company[edit]

Markhh, given your interest in the Met, I thought I might plant a seed of an idea to create an article on the short lived brain child of Rudolf Bing, the Metropolitan Opera National Company. This company toured throughout North America for two seasons and was co-sponsored by the Metropolitan Opera and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Soprano Risë Stevens and director Michael Manuel (see obituary) were co directors of the company.4meter4 (talk) 23:18, 8 June 2015 (UTC)


Hello Markhh. Thanks for moving the item on the Fantasia article. While making a cheesecake to take to my friends annual pig roast tomorrow I thought "you know that item belongs in the spin-offs section" so it was nice to see that you had already moved it. Wish I could send you a slice. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 20:03, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

Ziegfeld Theatre (1927)[edit]

Hi. I see that you deleted the link to Ziegfeld Theatre in a lot of articles, but you should disambiguate it to Ziegfeld Theatre (1927) if the performance was between 1927 and 1966. I fixed a few of the most famous ones, but didn't have time to do all of them, so I hope you can get to it. All the best, -- Ssilvers (talk) 18:17, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, I misunderstood how that tool would work. I thought it would allow me to change all to the 1927 page but it didn't, it only unlinked them. Will try to,update as possible. Thanks, Markhh (talk) 18:44, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

I think User:Qwertyytrewqqwerty/DisamAssist.js would work for you. I already fixed some of the links using that tool. epicgenius (talk) 22:22, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Analog downloads[edit]

No such thing as as an analog CD. "Digital CD" is redundant, like an "egg omelet".

I'm not sure of the point you're making here: In context, you're implying that there is such a thing as an analog download. Where did you get this information?

As you may have noticed, I'm doing some chesking of links and general tidying on the Tosca article. Thanks for repairing the Operabase link. The one you've provided is to "Statistics 2013–14", not 2014–15, and the figure is 540.I've made this small amendement. Brianboulton (talk) 18:40, 8 May 2016 (UTC)


Yes, the Archives of the Metropolitan Opera include their tours, and no listing can be found for the name of June Preston. The whole tone of the article seems to be a mix of the inappropriate and the fictional. Apparently, the lady herself has been contributing to her Page, and has been adding her resume to the mentioned singers. Ephraem 05:46, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

R.I.P. Peter Allen[edit]

I thought you might be interested in this obituary on radio announcer Peter Allen who was long associated with the Metropolitan Opera radio broadcasts. Perhaps an article might be worth creating?4meter4 (talk) 12:59, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Leontyne Price[edit]

The other user never talks and doesn't do much on Wikipedia, but you're a knowledgeable experienced editor. The source about where she lives "now" and where she's lived before doesn't support anything. It doesn't say where she lives now (or at least as of 2013, the date of the article) or how long she lived in that house she sold in 2013. The material really doesn't belong in the article unless we can source both points. Anyway, your comments are always welcome.--Bbb23 (talk) 15:54, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

I was trying to help that other guy out, but you are absolutely right. ("You people", though?) Cheers!, Markhh (talk) 16:16, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
Well, there were two of you. :-) No offense intended.--Bbb23 (talk) 17:21, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

Please do not remove tags without discussion[edit]

In removing three inline citation needed tags in the Film section at the A Prairie Home Companion article, you removed markers for the last three purported facts in the section that were not tied to sources. That is, hard work had gone into the section to revise the section content from being WP:OR, to being fully source-derived. The three tags that remained were "facts" as yet untraced to a source.

Three tags in an entire section are not "excessive," and removing them made it harder to complete work there. Moreover, removing them without the least effort to source the "facts" appearing places an undue emphasis on appearance, rather than on getting articles into compliance. Please, source the missing facts, or leave the tags in until others can complete the work. Cheers. Le Prof (talk) 15:57, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Duration of Elizabethan plays[edit]

Hi Markhh,

I'm working on a rewrite / expansion of the bit of Hamlet dealing with its duration relative to typical Elizabethan plays (just a para or so; nothing major), that will, I think, bring it more in line with the intent of your edit. It's going to take some time (limited time, and I need to update myself on the scholarship here; it appears it's shifted since last I looked), but hopefully some time in the next few weeks or so. In any case, while I'm reading up, are there any sources in particular you think I should consult to make sure I address the issues that led to your dissatisfaction with the previous status quo? Also, when I finally get it written, would you be willing to take a look at it and make sure it's in line with your expectations? Cheers, --Xover (talk) 11:31, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
