Oklahoma!


See above re: old, cranky, don’t like anything.

Before tonight I’d never actually seen Oklahoma! In the theatre for it about 20 times, but no view of the stage. (Pit band, loft behind the audience.) And I’m still not sure I’d say I’ve seen Oklahoma!

After the dream ballet at the top of Act II I leaned over to Brian and whispered “I passed up a chance to pee for that?” And then after the show I added “If I had missed it and you described it to me, I wouldn’t have believed a word.”
