I love musicals. I love getting dressed up and going to the theater, and experiencing a live show. This summer I got to go on stage at during Priscilla: Queen of the Dessert and dance with drag queens, and last night I had the good fortune to attend The Wizard of Oz with one of my good friends. I have never seen a stage version of the show, so I jumped at the chance to accompany of my friend for an evening somewhere over the rainbow.
I had a great time. I enjoy hanging out with JP, and the show was fantastic. I was very impressed with the use of technology in the show. To simulate the tornado, they used a projector and screen with a computer generated images. The acting and singing was great, and the dog that played Toto stole the show. I have no idea how they trained him to be so well behaved, but he definitely got the loudest applause at the end of the night.
All in all, it was a great way to start the weekend. I am fortunate to have the day off today, and the day off on Monday, so I have plenty of time to relax and get some homework done….unfortunately, there is always homework to be done.
