a funny thing happened

Man, it's hot here.  97 degrees.  Ya gotta just love air conditioning...

... and even though it might be a good night to just stay air-conditioned without interruption, we are heading to the Jungle Theater to see their current production of the musical-comedy A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.  I love the Jungle.  Their shows are always first-rate, even though it's a pretty small theater (seats maybe 130), and the theater itself is funky-cool -- a great atmosphere.  We're taking my sisters Mary and Joan and my nephew James for a fun night out.

More theater in the next couple weeks, while Mary is still visiting us:  H.M.S. Pinafore at the Guthrie Theater (much bigger venue, seating maybe 1100!), then the Broadway touring production of West Side Story at the Orpheum Theater (seating about 1900).  Mary and James both love music and love theater, so this should be a good cross-section of Twin Cities theater options for them.

... and it's time for me to leave the office for the day.  The Fourth of July long weekend beckons!
