Curtains

How about a theater review for a nice Saturday post?

My aunt and uncle have season tickets to the Hale Centre Theater in SLC for themselves and their kids and spouses. My mom also gets to go occasionally. And since my cousin and her husband and family recently moved out of state, their tickets for last night were offered to me and Zac! Wahoo! Date night!! (we don't go out on dates nearly enough, really)

The play was Curtains (click here for more info on the play and the theater, if you're interested. There is a very good slide show of different scenes from the show which you may like to see). It was a murder-mystery musical about a stage cast ("show people") and a murder that takes place on stage on opening night. They are then quarantined to the theater while an investigation takes place. And there is romance, and comedy, and lots of funny caricatures of what life "behind the scenes" is like for show people. Anyway - it was a lot of fun. And it was also fun to see my cousins that I don't see often, and my mom, and aunt and uncle. We all went out to eat together beforehand. My niece watched the kids for us so that we could go. And Zac and I were just so excited to get out by ourselves and do something fun!

So, well, that's it for today. :)

Kurt and I tried to always get season tickets to the Hale Theater! Missing Utah! Sounds like fun!

Someday when Elijah's old enough not to need a babysitter (so like when he's 21) and I have some extra cash lying around (so like never), I would LOVE season tickets to Hale. Glad you had fun!
