Jersey Boys

Couple of notes about my Saturday in LA...

ASL Storytime at Deaf West Theatre

Now a regular stop on my theatre travels - I went to Deaf West Theatre to see their ASL Storytime. Koda West (an organization for Kids of Deaf Adults - usually known as CODAs - Children of Deaf Adults) was there sponsoring the day and signed stories written by hearing children of deaf adults. Brian Campbell was interpreting again - and I have to say, he's one of the best! It was also such a pleasant surprise to see Deanne Bray and her daughter Kyra in the audience that day. :)

Winter Wonderettes!

Such a cute and delightful show!! It's so wonderful to see this version of the show because after seeing and loving the Marvelous Wonderettes, to find out what happened to all the characters 6 months after MW ends is just a lot of fun! :) Bets, Julie, and Misty were fabulous in their roles and the show was just as heartfelt, funny, and sweet as the original. :) I really enjoyed it - especially Missy's little tribute to Hawaii in their Christmas Around the World! :)

Later I got to spend some quality time with everyone and we spoke about Spam recipes ;), traffic to Costa Mesa, how everything closes in Kauai at 6pm... it was wonderful! I absolutely love Bets, Julie, and Misty and seeing them all together in the same show was really a dream come true!! And Jill was a pleasure to meet - and so hysterical as well - "Because you know, Hawaii is another country..." :)

Jersey Boys in Costa Mesa

Made it to Costa Mesa just in time to make the 7:30pm showing of "Jersey Boys" (thanks to Misty's traffic advice!)

One last thing - maybe two...

Did anyone see Julie Ann in "A Picture of Hollis Woods" last night? I was flying back home when it aired so I dvd-ed it and plan to watch it this week. :)

I am IN LOVE with "October Road" - I watched all of Season 1 on the flight over to LA and cried like a baby - it's one of the best shows I've seen in a long time! It's the first time I've actually gotten addicted to a series that was still on the air - not to mention that it's been a long time since I've gotten addicted to a series on network tv! :D Has anyone seen it?

I'm off to catch up with all of your entries! Hope you've all had a nice weekend!! Big HUGS to you!!
