Wizard of Oz

Saw the Wizard of Oz at the 5th Avenue Theater tonight with Melissa. Quite a lavish production. Good thing this wasn't the first show in my subscription though. I might have sold off the rest of the tickets. Frankly, Dorothy was overacting. A lot. It got tiring. Quickly. Lot of other things I didn't like about the production too. The good things: the Tin Man. Loved his voice. The actors who played the Tin Man and the Scarecrow both did wonderful jobs. The Wicked Witch of the West was also well done. Lovely make-up. She looked like a witch should. And my could she cackle! If that was a recorded cackle, please don't ruin the illusion for me. And the munchkins were great! Up way past their bed time. Anyone who can get that many kids to stick to the script has got to be a good director. Their costumes were well done as well. I want one of them for halloween next year. If you love me, and you are the sewing type, you'll make me one with a built-in pot-belly.

Thanks for being my date for the evening Melissa! She's a swell girl everyone. Tomorrow (in 30 minutes) is her birthday, and she's having a party! You must go, you must!
