It's delovely

We attempt to attend all the musicals that come to town, so I was thrilled when I caught wind that Anything Goes was coming to the Ahmanson for the holiday season. I watched it a few years prior and thoroughly loved it, so it was a lighthearted delight to watch it in its full 1930s naval revue last week. I have been smitten with Cole Porter's songs for ages; they're all so catchy, nostalgic, and, simply, delovely. The husband scored us seats in our own balcony box (which worked out since I was suffering from a cold and would have irked nearby patrons with my wheezing if we were sitting any closer to them), and we hummed along to the tunes throughout the show's entirety. On our way out, I overheard two older ladies reminisce, "Musicals these days are just not made like the classics were." So true.

  9. Kudos to your husband scoring box seats!! That is awesome. Sorry you had a cold, but being at a musical ought to take your mind of the sniffles for awhile. :)

  11. I am such a fan of the theater too. I have to admit since having kids it's been harder, but only because we want to take them and it gets quite expensive!
