The Importance of Being Earnest

As you may know, Zac and I go out on "real dates" infrequently enough that I feel I have to document them on my blog as momentous occasions. :)
Well, once again, last weekend we were given the fantastic opportunity to see a play at the Hale Centre Theater in SLC with my aunt, uncle, a few cousins and my mom. This one was The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde. It was one of the funniest things I have seen in what feels to be a long long while. It was so wonderful to be there, laughing out loud and watching the reactions of other audience members (there were some in my line of sight that kept clapping their hands in glee at all the funny parts - I enjoyed them). And it was such a needed and welcome distraction from some of the drama in my life right now (the neighborhood scandal-thing). But that's all I'll say about that.

Anyway - the last night of performances for this play was last night, so unfortunately I cannot recommend that you go see it this time. But if you ever have another chance to see a good production of The Importance of Being Earnest, I'd suggest you do it. And that is my theater review for today. :)

Thanks again to my niece Chelsea for driving up from her college apt. to babysit for us. We are so incredibly grateful to everyone who made it possible for us to "go out."
(approx. 1 more year until Abigail will be official legal babysitting age and then I fully expect my life to change dramatically!!! Really. hahaha)

Have you seen the Reese Witherspoon movie version? So funny. I love that Oscar Wilde.

I love a good play.

Yes, your life will never be the same after you have a built-in babysitter. So wonderful.

That is one of my favorite movies ever! Both the Reese Witherspoon and the older version. I would have loved to see that production... it sounds fabulous! We have tickets to see Pirates of Penzance at the Hale Center in September. I sure hope we're around to see it! I'm so glad (and so jealous) that you got to go!
