Fred Barton said the funniest thing. . "If Noel Coward were trying to do a show today, they'd force him to have Thomas Meehan fix his book and Kathleen Marshall to teach him comedy." LMFAO! This from a thread about writers directing their own work - a common place practice in the past - greatly FROWNED upon by the diletant producers of today .

Tidewater Players is happy to announce Our 2013/2014 Season! Richard O'Brien's THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW Sep 27 - Oct 12. 2013 -Book, Music, and Lyrics by Richard O’Brien The musical that became a movie and started a 35-year nonstop cultural phenomenon is where it is meant to be seen—LIVE on stage! A sexy, wild, funny, tongue-in-cheek interactive time warp through a kaleidoscope of camp with a musical score that has become iconic—one show-stopper after another! Strange things happen when Brad and Janet, a clean-cut young couple from the suburbs, get caught with a flat in the middle of nowhere. After an incredible night at the Frankenstein place with Dr. Frank N Furter and others, they learn a little bit about themselves and the world. This rock musical spins a bizarre story of seduction and sexual confusion (to some).

I'd like to give a big shout out to Thomas Meehan & Bob Myers at The Farmers State Bank & Trust Co. in Jacksonville. I try to do the majority of my business locally because I like to support our community, but a happy accident had us refinance our home at a lower interest rate with them. They followed through on everything, kept me up to date, met all their deadlines & mine. It was a pleasure doing business with them. I don't feel that bad since Thomas is a hometown boy. Thanks guys, it was a pleasure doing business with you!!!

As I compress my life into digital bytes, I found an old nugget friom when I was 22 and hanging around successful people. Tom Meehan wrote the book for Annie, I wrote this in Nov 1978 and Annie was thisclose to never seeing the light of day. 'Annie' Is Hit By Evan Weiner He has an apartment in Manhattan where he spends most of his days. These days, however, are very rewarding for him and very profitable. The he is Thomas Meehan of Monsey and he spends most of his time in Manhattan because of his occupation...a Broadway playwright. His latest play? Perhaps you heard of it, "Annie," a Tony Award winner. Meehan, who comes from a prominent Rockland family that includes the former district attorney (Robert) and another brother, John, a Ramapo legislator and present majority leader of the county legislature, didn't always enjoy the success he has today. Before "Annie," Meehan was a satirical writer for a short-lived but well received television show, "That Was The Week That Was" (the show which delivered David ...
