Things are still percolating madly in The Underworld. I was gone the whole weekend at a theatre convention, at which one of my best friend's presentation of Rent (in a 30-minute excerpt) went through the roof. Much late-night, goggled-eyed celebration ensued. Then came a Reds game followed by a poolside cookout, so I haven't been able to dig into a meaty post as of late.
Even though it is nearly past us, we're going to pay a little tribute to June with this photo-essay (which, in true Underworld style, grew longer than I anticipated anyway!) Unlike the more dramatic name Joan (with which I find, almost universally, that I like every star with that moniker as a first name!), the name June seems to bring out the sunny, cheery, lighter personalities. Still, you may find that even these sunny-side-up stars endured their own share of trouble. It's not that I dislike the Junes, I'm just – as a rule – not as crazy for them. I tried to find either good, different or interesting pictures of them as we examine today, alphabetically, some famous Junes. I hope I haven't forgotten too many. I really tried to forage for as many as I could! In a break from tradition, the pictures come first instead of after the text, so that you can see the lady ahead of time before reading about her.
I hope you've enjoyed this traipse through the Junes. I'm not sure if there are any I missed, but you can tell me if I did. Of course, the title of this post comes from a famous and rousing song called “June Is Bustin' Out All Over” from the Broadway musical Carousel. I've always loved watching that number in the movie version of the show, but apart from that, my favorite rendition is the screamingly hilarious rendition of it that took place when Miss Leslie Uggams attempted to power her way through it at a Washington, D.C. concert with no earthly idea what the lyrics were. The result was a complete and utter train wreck that was captured on video in a clip that has long since gone viral. You can view it here. If you haven't seen it, pee first. If you have, maybe it will bring a smile to your face again!
