Took my 6 year old to the Paper Mill Playhouse to see Peter Pan.  We had a wonderful time!

Shameless promotion: I'm in Grand Hotel: the Musical (in St. Louis, MO) and it's set to go up in April. I'm really excited and telling everyone how great it's going to be. I'm playing Greta Garbo's role in the movie ver.

Other than that I just saw William Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" a couple nights ago. Very well done, great comedy schtick throughout. Really had the audience laughing.

You gotta keep us apprised of the play's progress and shoot us some pics DollFace!

My sister is a set designer based in London and I'm ashamed to say I've only seen one of her shows, it was her first production and believe it or not the play was Frankenstein. Although I've only seen one I have been backstage on a few which was fantastic. I'm going to stay with her in the summer and will make a point of seeing another then.

My father is shall we say a little 'old fashioned' and recently he saw a production my sister designed about two gay lovers. There was apparently lots of kissing and as he put it 'naked cavorting' on stage and when I asked him what he thought of it he said he was 'aghast.'  >:D

I'm completely opposed to cavorting. I can put up with a little bit of light frolicking,possibly even an occasional romp,  but absolutely NO cavorting. That's where I draw the line.  ;)

LOL....it's worse than that. I actually like ABBA too.


I have extremely wide and varied taste in music, which outside of Shania & Faith, does not include Country.

Hey, my toe has been known to tap occasionally to an ABBA tune. But I can't picture myself buying an album or going to see ABBA-Lite.

However, I HAVE seen an Elvis impersonator. Back when I was about 12. My mom took me because I'm a huge Elvis fan, and frankly the guy was awesome! Not the fat, cheezy, fake Elvis voice guys you see so much. Dude had some pipes.

Another topic I been meaning to post about!

As an early Christmas present my wife took me to see Evil Dead the Musical back in October!!  I knew it was coming to town but had completely forgotten about it, though she ruined the surprise because she wasn't sure if I wanted the "Splatter Zone".  She called me up one day and asked; "Would you rather be clean or dirty?", that is a hard question to answer if you don't know the context so I told her clean of course...She proceeded to tell me it was for something she was taking me to; "Monster Trucks, Motocross, Jello Wrestling?!?!  The possibilities were endless....Well it took me 'til the next day to figure out what she was up to so I told her we could sit in the "Splatter Zone" but she had already bought the tickets.  Oh well, no splatter that night but the local theater troupe, Stray Dog, that performed the show did an excellent job!  It was an entertaining and interesting show, especially given the fact that Stray Dog performs in Tower Grove Abby.

My Mom got to see "Diversions And Delights" with V.P. back in 1977 (I believe).  I was just asking her about it the other day.  Lucky!
My mom took me to see this as well.  A one man show, with Price portraying Oscar Wilde.

On a recent trip to NY, the Mrs. and I saw MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET and really enjoyed it.  Tried to get ADDAMS FAMILY tix but it was sold out the night we wanted to go.  We were too early for Pee-Wee -- darn it all.  Too early for Spider-Man, too -- but maybe that was a lucky break, considering.

This year, I saw WICKED.  Loved it.  Great experience.

I took my dad to see SHREK for his birthday.  He loves those films, and he enjoyed the stage production. 

I saw two of Dollface's shows.  They were great and she was great in them.
