Tradition!

Last night Casey and I went to see my favorite musical, Fiddler on the Roof. Although I have actually seen it on Broadway in NYC, I was thoroughly impressed with last night's performance. I have been obsessed with this musical since my high school did it when I was a Junior. Last night's cast, music, staging, directing, and costumes were phenomenal. And, since last night was opening night Casey and I got to go to the cast party after the show.

Casey and I both knew people in "the pit" from our musician days, and during intermission he went down to try to say hi to some of the people that he knew. Well, he got a little lost, and the next thing he knew he was backstage with the entire cast in full makeup and costume. He saw Tzeitel (my FAVORITE Fiddler character--hence the dog's name) and even talked to the woman playing the character of Golde. Gosh, I'm still jealous of that.

Before the show Casey took me on a date to a fancy restaurant here in town. I ate a curry dish, those are always some of my favorites. It was a wonderful night of Tradition, and I'm so thankful I had the opportunity to see my favorite musical on stage once again.

Hugs, love and chihuahua kisses

Sounds like it was a lovely evening! I'm a little jealous. I don't think my hubby would ever take me to a musical or play. Shoot he has whined when I've asked to rent "Rent". (Darn, should have rented that over the weekend when he was gone! Darn!)

Thanks for stopping by my WW! Have an awesome day Mrs. PCP!

that sounds like a wonderful evening. My brother was in a small community theater group for awhile and they did Fiddler. When I was in high school we were going to do "Tevya's Daughter's" (a non-musical version) but for reasons I don't remember it never happened. I had been cast as Tzeitel.
