A Night At The Theater

Fortunately, the weather didn't get nearly as bad as they had predicted earlier and we were able to attend the show last night.  While getting there was a bit sketchy with the trucks slopping snow and ice onto our windshield, we made it the play without incident.
This performance was an invited dress rehearsal, since Robert has worked with the theater many times, we were invited for a preview and to give the actors an audience to play to.  There were just a few of us, but we had a great time.

The "Jeeves Intervenes"  is a fun romp with a cast of characters including the reluctant playboy, the pushy aunt trying to marry him off, the ne'er do well best friend, the overly anxious love interest with a penchant for Nietzsche, and, of course, Jeeves, the faithful Valet without whom no one in the play would not have had a happy ending.

If you're in the Chicagoland area, take a trip out to Oakbrook and see the play.  

Tonight they started performing previews and their big opening weekend is this weekend.  The show runs through March 2nd.

Well, it's getting late and I really need to be off to bed.  It's been a very nice day (my birthday, actually), but now I must get to sleep. 

Tomorrow I'll be re-listing an item in my Etsy shop, but I have something very special for Friday's listing, so be sure to check back tomorrow night and see what it is!

Good Night, All.
