Everyone seems to agree on "rainy."

Have you seen any dances in which rain is suggested? The only one I can think of is Still Life at the Penguin Cafe.

Hi there djb. The musical SINGIN' IN THE RAIN comes to mind. I personally did not see the production here in Sydney - Australia but if anyone else out there did, maybe they can share with us on how it was portrayed in that particular production!

Now that Salzberg has translated his answers, I see that we're not all in agreement about "rainy."

Ma, how was the effect of rain achieved in Light Rain? (If, in fact, it was. I realize now that I asked about rain being "suggested," which is open to interpretation. I really was asking about producing the look of rain.)

I don't know about Sydney, but here in Perth, Western Australia, they apparently had actual rain on the stage, i.e. water heated to about 30 degrees Celcius falling onto the stage. I didn't see the production, but I know someone who was in it, and apparently the first two rows of the audience got sprinkled.

That's what I thought I remembered reading. I wonder whether they used L161/R56?

I wouldn't -- I'd use L106 (for a rain of BLOOD!).

The two I had the most trouble with were LONELY and REFLECTIVE.

Upon...er...reflection...I realize that those were the two about which I made jokes (albeit weak ones -- what color is "weak"?), so maybe I had trouble with them, too.
