THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE BUY TICKETS TO SEE HIM, HEAR HIM, IN THE SHOW. He's got something -- talent, and an effortless friendly manner that makes the audience feel that they been introduced. His tone of voice--is that a southern accent, a drawl? The way he get people to focus on him as the play progresses, certainly reveals why Chucky Jack's considered a Tenneesee hero. There's no microphone--no visible mike in the footlights, but a mike could be overhead in the lighting equipment. I read that stars of shows wear devices in a shirt or pants pocket. I'll ask Mark--that's why we never miss a word... Maybe he was a church singer when he was starting out. Baritone voice, and yet the way he sustains the ending, the long note that he holds before the lights fade out...he sounds like a tenor... I could ask him, explain I want to write a story on the show for" the "The Knoxville News," ...he probably has a hundred girl friends. If I see him before the show starts...well, I better the show again tomorrow. His arms before the first cartwheel are still stiffish. I'll bet he has a girl friend...

Frankee, your husband finished the job he came here to do . Lets headback to New York.
I have notes, Mom I need to give the exta dancers and the show's star.
Let your husband tell Mr. Chucky Jack, Frankee.
Mom, the cast needs rehearsal before the show tonight...
Frankee, you're over-doing it. Just tell Mark what needs to be worked on and Mark can schedule a cast rehearsal in the morning! Frankee, it's not just the extra dancers--the star needs to relax his arms before each and every cartwheel. Dear child, that's you told Mr. Jack this morning. And I heard you tell him yesterday.
He's got stiff arms, Mom! I know how to get dancers to fix things-- they have to practice & do the routine three or four times to be able to do it consistently.
Why not drill him tonight before the show, Frankee? Mr. Jack will he here in less than an hour.
Mom, please don't try to help me and give me notes.
Dear dear daughter--I don't know why you just don't meet Mr. Jack at breakfast?
Because that's not the way to handle a star. You demonstrate--you give him the note--you give the note three or four times and that's it! You're done!
DON'T JUST HANG AROUND
