First of all...

...if you've voted in my poll below... THANK YOU!! I've been having discussions with a friend regarding what makes a show amazing - my friend feels it's ONLY the material (that it could basically be cast with anyone), I feel that it's the actor's interpretation of the material (which is why I will go to see MANY different productions of the same show to see different casts... or why seeing an understudy is a big deal to me.) And maybe she's right and it doesn't matter to most people,... maybe I'm just weird.

Also, I personally would choose a stronger actor over a stronger singer anyday... In my poll example, some people may not think Michael has the strongest voice of the bunch (though I happen to think that he has the strongest everything of the bunch... but that's just me), but I do tend to like his interpretation of the role much more. I realize that's not for everyone, though and some people might prefer what they consider to be the stronger voice...

In any case, thank you SO MUCH to everyone who took the time to vote. :)

Speaking of Michael, in GREAT theatre / vacation news, I was able to change our flights to Sacramento to include a short stopover in LA! I'm SO thrilled!! :) Mark & I will be able to fit in Michael's concert in LA while we're there - I'm SO excited that we'll be in town for this! :D

In non-theatre news, I went to the Dole Cannery theatres tonight to see "Star Trek" at the IMAX with Mark. :) He's a HUGE Star Trek fan, and had been talking about wanting to see the show for some time now. Sadly, I had to walk out of the theater halfway through and wait for him outside... The medication that I'm taking now causes extreme dizziness and all the action of the movie on such a HUGE screen and up so close made me feel ill. I even tried to watch the movie with my eyes closed, but I feared I would become really ill if I stayed in the theatre much longer. :P Mark enjoyed the show, though and that's what really mattered. :)

Tomorrow, Mark & I are taking Cooper to the Pet Expo at Blaisdell Center. :) It will be the first time we're taking Cooper out in public with SO MANY people and dogs - we hope he does well. :)

Hope you all have a nice evening and thanks again for your participation in the my survey!! :)

ETA: Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms on my friends list!
