I have always loved going to shows. One of my favorite birthdays was I think around age 8 when my parents took some friends and I to the Fox Theater in Atlanta to see Beauty and the Beast. We sat on the very last row in the balcony and could not really see a thing, but it was wonderful! Since then, I try to go to shows whenever I can. Musicals, theater, Stomp, whatever! And luckily, I have many friends now that enjoy shows and are in shows!
Last night we went to the Boiler Room in Franklin to see Sunday in the Park with George. I had never seen the show and only knew that very basic premise: that it was based on the painter George Seurat and his painting of “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of Ja Grande Jatte”. The story was interesting, with the first act in the past for the creation of the painting, and the second act in the present with George’s great-grandson creating a variation on his theme. The cast was very talented and the music was unique. If you have time and are in the area, I recommend it!
