I have to tell you that my husband is a classical clarinetist and he was in NYC working with the woman, Blair Tindall, who wrote the book "Mozart in the Jungle" during the times she talks about in her book, generally mid-70s to mid-80s. He says she was only a passingly good oboe player who, as she accurately recounts, basically slept her way to some well-paying gigs. Her book was incredibly hurtful to many people she had worked with, and who she used as very thinly-veiled characters. She has basically been shunned by the classical music community ever since it came out. We have a copy of the book and we use it as a prop for a broken window in our 100-year-old house; it's been rained on many times, the color from the cover & binding has run onto the pages, and it's all warped, but who cares? It pains us and many of our friends that she is actually making money off this so-called "exposé". Amazon is going to pay her anyway, and I suppose it is never a bad thing to get actors some work, but this book & show are earning her blood money.
I like this show. A lot. But I am surprised by the GG awards. Did not see the best actor award for Gael coming at all. Charming speech tho.
