Last night I squeezed into my most stretchy dress, some mules 4 sizes bigger than my regular size, and brought my daughter to Penumbra to see the preview show of Ain't Misbehavin. I remember my mother singng lots of these songs - she LOVED show tunes.
T. Michael Rambo was phenomenal as usual. All the women in the small ensemble were amazing. Baby girl was toe-tapping, bobbing her tired head (she had Girl Scouts too), and only nodded during "Black and Blue" but was up for the finale.
Honey was supposed to join - he loves music and theater too - but he's sick (again). This weather change and life stress stuff is too much.
It's starting to sell out every show so grad some tickets - student tickets $15 (we got $5 tickets for preview nite - too bad you missed out). Still worth the $15 if you love great music, strong performances, and musical theater.
