A Tale of Two Cities

This Friday I went out for some much needed girl time with Becky, Natalie, and Randee (my two sisters-in-law and my soon to be sister-in-law). I took them down to dinner and to see the play A Tale of Two Cities at the Hale Center Theater. It was phenomenal! It helped that I had recently re-read the book so it was fresh on my mind. I loved the guy that played Mr. Cruncher! He did such a fabulous job endearing his part as a character I didn't particularly like in the book. In fact at one comical line a lady was laughing in the audience so hard that they had to pause for a minute before continuing. I think they were very pleased. A special treat for us was that the author of the original Broadway play was there and had coordinated during production with the Hale Theater. She got a standing ovation from the entire theater and it was really special to watch her enjoy her work (she was sitting two people in front of me). Also she brought a large group from New York with her to see the final play so I am sure this brought good press for the theater group. I guess this was the first off Broadway performance so that's pretty cool. Anyway if you missed it sorry it's last show was Saturday but you can find the music online...
Anyway it was great to hang with the girls and talk about all the fun stuff that only sisters chat about. Thanks girls for the wonderful night!
