My wife and I shared a wonderful pre-show dinner with Vienna and Tanya on Friday before seeing the preview that night. Then we drove up to Muir Woods for a very pleasant "hike" on Saturday mid-day. Finally we wrapped up a great trip with the "opening night" and post-show festivities last night.
Now we're on a flight from SFO to MSP (where I half expect to run down to the baggage claim area and find VT playing piano there.... no, hopefully that won't happen to her on this trip if she has to connect through that airport again on her return), where we will connect to our flight to CLT.
My wife and I have taken many, many trips over the years. But all in all this one has simply been one of the greatest we've experienced.
Our thanks to all the cast and crew for letting us play our small part in making this wonderful musical come to life. It has been an honor. And may this "birth" be only the beginning of a long and glorious life. This one has what it takes to have some serious legs, folks. But the professional theatrical world is such an expensive place. I'm sure it will take some serious funding to make the next steps.
But who knows what the future may hold?
