So on Thursday night I took my mom to see Singin' in the Rain at St. George Musical Theater. It's the most cheerful I have felt in a month! It did exactly what I think theater should do -- it took me out of my life and into the land of make-believe for a few hours. It was very nice, and I liked that particular land of make-believe!
And I must say, the singing was beautiful but the tap dancing was PHENOMENAL! It was hard not to climb over the people in front of me and jump on stage with them. sigh. To tap dance ... that would be so fun. Anyhow, I bow down to the talent of those Dunbar people. I was green with talent envy. Absolutely green.
It was really fun for me. And in a freak of nature twist, it is RAINING right now! And has been for three days! So I am particularly happy I saw the show, because now when the rain makes me feel "blah" I just sing softly "Singin' in the Rain ... just singing in the rain!" and yes I do it in public if I have to. I have no qualms about that. And if I had the skills, I'd go do a mad dance out in the puddles, too! Ah, the power of the theater.
So, go ahead. Sing and dance in the rain. I'm doing it over here in my corner.
