Drowsy Chaperone

It’s not often that I see a show that I know nothing about – though my roomie and musical theater friends in Nashville always introduced me to new ones – but I do usually enjoy seeing brand new shows. Mom and I went to the Aurora Theater to see The Drowsy Chaperone. I may have seen a few numbers from this show (OC members – did y’all do this one season??) but really had no recollection of the plot or tunes.

But it was fantastic. Very entertaining and funny. And the performers were great also (as it is the only professional theater in our county). And although the Fox Theater is grand, shows in smaller venues are just more personal. If you’re in Atlanta, I’d highly recommend Aurora. And if you’re into musical theater even the slightest bit, I’d recommend The Drowsy Chaperone.

#42 complete on the 101 list!

Shows

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!
