What was this? I saw a few people post about it on their instagrams. Was it a workshop?

Amazing response, jorge. way to rise above XD!

Also his question was legitimate - if people are posting on insta or w/e some people may have more information than just what was in press releases?

No, it wasn't. He asked if it was a workshop, and if he had searched for "loch lomond," restricted the dates and maybe included the names of people in said instagrams, he'd have found the press releases and photos posted on BWW.

I suppose if it were cast instagrams; for some reason I guess I was picturing it just on random people's instagram pages and if you just google "loch lomond musical" or even "loch lomond musical workshop" nothing comes up . . . 

in other words, you can find info on loch lomond on here, but maybe Jorge and Google should hold off on their wedding for a while after all <3

I actually do have a few questions now. Is the show aiming for a Broadway run? Was the cast only the four people? I noticed on one of the former Matilda's Instagrams(I think it was Brooklyn) where she was apart of a workshop with Ben Thompson and Alison luff, it appears she has deleted the photo, but I was wondering if this was the same workshop or if Alison was in another one.

I don't see anyone else in the cast? And only the four of them are in pictures for it, so my guess is that it's just four-person? Brooklyn & Ben must've been in something else.

Anyone know for sure?

Looking forward to another Broadway musical featuring awful Scottish accents. 

Also, in Scotland we don't refer to our culture as "Celtic," that's Irish.

^yeah, because Scottish Gaelic is the original language of Scotland. Just like Irish Gaelic is the original language of Ireland. Both are Celtic. Scottish is Celtic.

Do you realize you seem to be talking to someone that IS Scottish?   I'm pretty sure a Scottish person would KNOW if they use the word Celtic to refer to their own culture.  Just a guess.


If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

There are only four people in this show and Ben Thompson has never been involved. Hundreds of workshops are presented a year in NYC; I'm sure Alison Luff has done multiple.

adjective


 

  1. 1

    of or relating to the Celts or their languages, which constitute a branch of the Indo-European family and include Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Manx, Cornish, and several extinct pre-Roman languages such as Gaulish.

     

Sorry to be the one to tell you this but your spouse is lying to you.

Let me give you a quick couple of facts - in the places you've listed under the branch of 'Celtic' you've named all four countries in the UK. Irish, Scottish, Welsh and Breton/Manx/Cornish - which are all English. So that's immediately wrong as we know that no part of England is considered 'Celtic'

Roughly around the time of the Roman Empire, Scotland and Irish people were basically the same people so that was when we were all called Pict which was also the name of the original British language, spoken in all those places you got your from lying/ill-informed spouse. Neither Scottish Gaelic (or just 'Gaelic', as we call it) nor 'Irish Gaelic' (or just 'Eire' as they call it) is the original language of our countries. And the word Celtic is a much more modern word to describe -*shock*- Irish Culture.

Since the fall of the Roman Empire, all four countries in the UK have developed their own culture, identity and language - and names. The only 'Celtic' in Scotland is the football team and that's pronounced 'Seltic' and guess what? It's an Irish funded team! 

We get pretty pissy when other countries try to adapt our culture because most of the time they think they know best because their great-grandmother's-uncles-cousin's-son knew a Scottish person once. They'll pronounce Gaelic like 'gay-lic' when it's actually 'gah-lic' and they'll call us Celtic when in reality, the nearest Celt is about 500 miles South-East of our country. 

And dramamama611 is correct, you're talking to a Scottish person who happens to be from Fort William, the nearest town to Loch Lomond.

If you'd like to send me a DM I'd happily continue this history lesson so we don't waste anymore of these lovely people's day.

That is clearly from a different thing. The press release and photos for Loch Lomond make clear who was in it.

The Broadway World press release only refers to the SCORE as Celtic. It refers to the score as "filled with traditional Scottish folk-ballads and a Celtic-inspired contemporary music." So 1) it may be that the score is inspired by Irish, Welsh, Celtic, and Breton music! and 2) Scottish folk music is, musicologically, Celtic! The musical style brought to the British Isles by the Celtic people is still present in the music of traditionally Gaelic speaking cultures in Ireland, Scotland, and the Isle of Mann, as well as in places like Cornwall and Wales! The difference between the musical structure of Irish and Scottish music is actually very slight - they even share  a certain overlap in traditional tunes! In short, though describing the PEOPLE of Scotland as Celtic is arguably less than correct, describing the MUSIC is not only correct, but the commonplace and widely accepted standard for both folk musicians and musicologists. And that's the only claim the press release made. And the only claim that our good friend Jorge defended. 

If you don't want to take THIS Scottish person's word on the matter, you can use Jorge's new fiance Google to check it out Loch Lomond Rock on Jorge! Your googling did not lead you astray. 

And if you want to get technical about things  - Scottish people don't have "accents," they have "dialects." An accent is the distinctive pronunciation of a LANGUAGE. So French people speaking English have French ACCENTS. A DIALECT (which is the word I'm sure you mean here) is a manner of speaking from particular place WITHIN a language. So, Plannietink08, you should be looking forward to another Broadway musical featuring awful Scottish dialects. :-p
