|First of the season|
Today, however, winter has returned. The bitter north wind coming down from Canada and cloudy skies have made a return after those nice days of sunshine we experienced. We are even expected to get a little snow again tonight and tomorrow. But for now I'm sitting in a warm room and looking forward to seeing a play with my friend Judy this afternoon. We're going to the matinee showing of The 39 Steps at the Mt. Baker Theater. It's sold out, so I'm pleased to know she thought to get tickets last week. If it lives up to the hype from the above link, I should get more than a few laughs today:
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python, and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced comic whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre. This spectacular treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), lightning fast quick-changes, an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance.Ohhh! An on-stage plane crash? That's about the only place I'd like to see one of those. And then I'm back home after the show to hunker down and wait for the weather to hit. More later...
