I tell you that to tell you this.
Last Sunday we went with J&C to see The Music Man at the Fireside in Fort Atkinson. It's a food and a show playhouse with professional actors. The show was wonderful. I highly recommend it. The food was very good, if priced a little high. If that's what it takes to stage a big budget musical, so be it.
I went outside for the intermission, as I often do, and happened to overhear an amazing conversation.
Young Woman: It's not that I don't like plays. I do. It's
just not doing it for me. I'm not getting into it.
Older Man: You understand what's going on, right? He's a con man and
he's not going to teach them to play.
YM: Yeah. I get that. It's just not my kind of thing.
Older Woman: I think it's so cute. They took it almost exactly
word-for-word from the movie.
At that point I headed back inside. I just wonder if she thinks all stage works come from the Silver Screen. It's an interesting world.
