guthrie nights

I love having my sister Mary in town -- and she's here for another nine days.  We are fitting a lot of activity into her visit.  Last night, we introduced her to the Guthrie Theater, one of the major attractions of the Twin Cities, for the Guthrie's current production of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, H.M.S. Pinafore (and somehow Mary knew the music from watching The Simpsons TV show!).  It was a fabulous performance, even though I had some trouble following the story line.  I guess that doesn't matter when you have good music and great voices singing it.

... and tonight, or one night soon, we are going to see the other play at the Guthrie, a much newer play called God of Carnage, which Joan saw on Broadway a couple years ago and liked a lot -- she says it's hilarious.  Variety is good.
Added later:   We loved God of Carnage!  If you get a chance, see it!
