Our weather forecast finally has a hint of snow in it. So what do we do? Do we do what we've been wanting to do since winter began? Do we hang around and wait with bated breath for the fluffy flakes to arrive? Do we anticipate with great joy staying snuggled in our living room with our pups and a roaring fire in the fireplace? Do we inspect our snowshovels to ensure they are ready for their first use this season?
Oh no no no. Not this time. Instead we'll get in the car and head south. It's show time for The Boy again.
He is appearing as Officer Lockstock in Urinetown, a musical comedy. Urinetown. Who came up with such a name? It's the first musical in which he has performed that the music will be unfamiliar to us. He burned us a CD over Christmas, but it promptly got scratched. One of life's mysteries.
With song titles like "It's a Privilege to Pee," I sense the humor will appeal to me.
Has anyone reading ever seen the show? For that matter, how many of you enjoy and attend live theatre?
We'll be back before the snow melts. Hopefully.
Maybe we'll even get to shovel!
