Well I am so cultured now.
Two immediate observations
The male tenor voice especially when sung with another male tenor is absolutely beautiful.
I was again reminded why the Chello is the most beautiful instrument in the world.

The musical was about the life and loves of Picasso. It was an awesome musical. Even thought I am not a huge art fan, getting this history lesson was amazing.

The musical was extremely cleverly written and well, Awesome.

We both left the theater dumbfounded and awed.
This is the musical we knew nothing about and had the least expectations about.

I can see why this theater company has been around for 195 years.
The sets, music and performers are all first rate.

One interesting observation, Robin and I were perhaps the youngest there

Shocked

overall a good experience.

I may even want to continue the subscription for a long time

That's neat that you did something so different. I don't think M would be willing to sit through it. I don't know if I would, either, really. I would like to see a ballet though, with the girls.

How did Robin enjoy it?

She loved it. When she was in NYC a few months back for some company meetings, she saw two broadway shows in her off time. She loves the theater.

She smiled when I told her how much I like going also.

We are going to get the kids and us a subscription to their kids theater they have
The lion, the witch and the wardrobe,
The little engine that could
(some kids name) and the really bad, awful....something something day.

It will be a nice introduction to the shows for them

That sounds like one fantastic show. Wink

Where are these - Walnut Street Theatre? If so, you're right: that place rocks.

Yes Walnut street theater. Did you wave when you went by on Sunday, we went right past it....I think at about 2 miles.

The only thing I remember seeing was the Old Bookbinder's, now with no windows, and feeling sad. The rest of the time I was looking at the ridiculously large number of people around me or the ground, as I didn't want to fall into a pothole for a second consecutive year.
