The Producers

Yesterday Ginny and I saw The Producers at the Marriott Lincolnshire theater. In a word: Fantastic! The singing was great, dancing incredible, acting wonderful. Guy Adkins was absolutely hilarious as Leo Bloom (played by Matthew Broderick in the movie). Oddly enough, we received a letter from the Marriott Theater indicating that some people might find …

Prairie Home Companion

Ginny and I saw “Prairie Home Companion” today … in a word: Yawn Don’t get me wrong … I enjoy the show on NPR (although I don’t go out of my way to listen to it), but this movie was just plain boring. Maybe I’m just not sophisticated enough for it … but I could …

Half Blood Prince

I’m about halfway through ::amazon(“0439784549”, “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince”):: and I must say it’s better than the last book. Much more readable and, at least in my opinion, on par with Ms. Rowling’s previous books. I recommend it. [tags]Harry Potter[/tags]

I really wasn’t expecting much, considering the venue and price of the tickets, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was pretty good for a community theater production. Yes, it was hot… very hot. And humid. But there …

We went to see Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy last night with Steve and his MENSA moving group. I never read the books … and when I watched it on PBS, I gave up quickly because the production values were so low (really bad props & special effects and pretty marginal acting, IMHO). The movie …

We just saw Swing! at the Marriott Lincolnshire Theater. I highly recommend it … it’s quite enjoyable. No plot, but the dancing and singing are outstanding. It’s a wonderful revue. The band, which was as much a part of the show as the performers, was great also. I think my favorite part was in the …
