[Ball is one of the few musical comedy artists to have distinguished himself <br/> equally as an interpreter of both Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stephen Sondheim, who would seem to be <br/> polar opposites as songwriters.] I'm very lucky that I've gotten to work with both of them, ... I was in Andrew Lloyd Webber's 50th party concert at the Albert Hall. That same year I was in <br/> a special show called Hey, Mr. Producer , a celebration of Cameron Mackintosh's work. There <br/> was a Sondheim section, and Cameron asked if I'd be part of it. I'd already recorded 'Losing My Mind' <br/> from Follies , which is one of my favorite songs of Steve's. But I hadn't yet done a particularly <br/> traditional treatment of it. Steve said he wanted me to do it absolutely straight, the way it was <br/> heard in the original show, which I was delighted about. And he worked with me on it--just him, and <br/> me, and a pianist in a tiny room, for an hour-and-a-half master class on this song. I came away knowing <br/> every nuance; why he wrote everything that he did; why every note was in its place; why the phrasing <br/> was like this--can you imagine how thrilling that was? And he is so articulate in explaining his <br/> work; you can be under no illusion why something is there. When you have that understanding, that <br/> is when his work opens up to you. Of course, they put me between Judi Dench singing 'Send in the Clowns' <br/> and Bernadette Peters doing 'Being Alive.' You try holding your own in that company!
Michael Ball

For me, it is as though at every moment the actual world had completely lost its actuality. As though there was nothing there; as though there were no foundations for anything or as though it escaped us. Only one thing, however, is vividly present: the constant tearing of the veil of appearances; the constant destruction of everything in construction. Nothing holds together, everything falls apart.
Eugene Ionesco

I don't know what the situation is with the Australian team but they seem pretty settled. In the same way that there were plenty saying last summer that they did not want to be in the side that loses the Ashes, there'll be more wanting to be in the team that regains them. We are under no illusion about how determined Australia will be.
David Graveney
