Indecision MIGHT pay off... good thing for our evening that it worked out that way this time!
The show was pretty good - now of course, nothing can compare with Donald O'Connor and his portrayal of Cosmo that (for me) stole the movie away from Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds (what hacks!) I can honestly say I enjoyed myself - even though at the heart of my being I am a theatre critic and it's hard for me not to mention some of the decided pathetic acting and iffy vocals... I'm getting past that... really.
And OF COURSE at the end - there was a standing ovation... now I'm sorry but in my mind this "standing O" thing is a rare treat - reserved for a spectacular and amazing performance - and sometimes to be delivered on the final night of the run just because it's over... but I swear to you - ever since moving to Utah it seems that this "rare treat" is delivered over and over again - at each and every performance... regardless of the level of performance. Hmmm... maybe it's related to the fact that there seem to be "treats" at every other kind of public gathering around here?
Oh - and, because y'all deserve a rare treat: I was tagged by my friend Malinda to share a photo (there was some 8th this, 8th that rule... but all my photos are crammed into one large photo library - so I flipped to 15th page and the 15th photo... and this was it)
this is W and H a few years ago - we celebrated M.O.T.H.'s birthday by going up the canyon and letting him cook us a good meal over the fire followed by his famous dutch oven cobbler. As a bonus, though I'm ashamed of it now, he also cleaned the dutch oven upon our return home... Hmmm... looks like I'd better start planning for the big man's birthday this year, I've got somethin' to make up for!
