Got it Made!

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing Maureen and Tom Berg's new musical, "Got it Made," at the Pillsbury Theater here in Minneapolis. I had my eyes opened to a few things...

First, it was one of those times where I am literally shocked at the talent of a friend. I don't know much about musicals, but I know that this one was good, and so well written. I loved the language of it, and the songs, and the characters were memorable. Maureen put a lot of effort into this show, but effort means little without talent.

Second, I'm still getting used to the higher expectations for everything here. High school band concerts are phenomenal, and even the smallest theater production (which this was not) is bursting with talent. I was so impressed with the actors in Got It Made-- it made me want to see a lot more theater around here.

Finally, last night was a spring night in the city. People in Minneapolis rush outside when it is nice, and this was one of those nights. Restaurants were full, pushing out onto the sidewalks, and there was a near-summer mood to everything. Life is good.

That peaceful easy feeling of summer, yes. I love it. It's tangible.
Maybe you are feeling at home here in lush Spring? I am always amazed at the talent of St.Stephenans. It is rather an embarrassment of riches. This town is rife with theatre of every sort and incredible museums and people who do avail themselves of their city. Now if it only didn't have such a disgusting winter!
And to think you almost missed it because of your fascinating passenger.

Welcome to springtime in Minnesota!
