Last night was quite an eye opener.
The show they put on last night was as good as any you see in NY, SF or LA. Of course you'd expect the show to be put on at any of the theaters along the strip and probably because of resources, they chose the Summerlin Library. We are talking about a stage as small as you would find in your local neighborhood theater. An IMAX theater or cineplex is much bigger than this stage and yet, they made it work.
All the actors were right on spot. Javert was more credible and sang much better than his counter part in the most recent Les Mis movie. Jean Valjean could have been plucked from one of the big productions across the country. The Tenardiers were also just as credible and I could go on about every character in the play. They were awesome, they had my wife in tears and she was not the only one. In such a small venue you could hear the sniffling and see the wiping of tears. That proves that this production is as serious as any other one playing anywhere else.
Don't miss it!

I was going to post this on FB but i figured it was a good story that needed its own page.
True story at work.
Employee: Hey Cisco, you're married so can I ask you a question?
Employee: how do I tell my mom that I just got engaged?
Me: perplexed look on my face, "just tell her"
Employee: yes, but what do I say.
Me: now I'm intrigued so I begin to ask questions as if she was my daughter. "Where's your engagement ring?
Employee: we just picked it out on line, we'll get it soon.
Me: How long have you guys been together?
Employee: four months.
She must have seen the look on my face, because she followed with.
"But in those four months, we've been through a lot"
I'm still standing there trying to comprehend what she is saying and she sees this.
Employee: I'm just afraid of how she's going to react.
Me: she's going to react just like I am. Surprised.
Employee: well, I don't care what she says, "we've been through a lot and from the moment I met him, I knew he was the one"
I am saddened by the thought process of someone I thought was smart, intelligent, etc.
What is the hurry in trying to grow up so quickly? I'm not saying people have to be together for years before tying the knot but four months?
Am I being too judgemental?
Maybe I'm just afraid that my daughter(s) would come up to me with the same nonsense.
I don't get it.
