It has been a tough week for a lot of reasons but last night was a time to relax and do something fun. Michael and I went to the Horizon Theater to see their new show, Cowgirls. Great show.
I will be reviewing the play this weekend for the online publication The Edge, which is how I came by the tickets.
Michael and I have seen some terrific plays, both from local theater companies and traveling national companies. Atlanta has a thriving theater scene, with several professional companies and I think 2 Equity houses.
I love plays and it's nice to share some mama/son bonding time with my son, even though I try not to leave Granny by herself very often. She and Lola were OK. We have very good neighbors, thank God.
I used Google maps free GPS on my phone to get there, and it routed us through a not great part of town. Glad that happened when it was still daylight, and even more glad Mike was with me.
He isn't keen on country music or classical but he said he enjoyed the show. Watching lovely ladies sing for two hours [especially a young one in hot pants] was not bad at all, he said. We were both so impressed that it was a musical comedy in which nearly all the performers played an instrument, and some played more than one. Wow.
We have a busy weekend ahead, lots to do, and rain will be moving in, so I need to get moving.
One more week of school!
