Are you a man of good character where women are concerned?

23 Apr

Ever wish that your life was a musical? Ever been in a situation where all of a sudden you seem to have an out of body experience and imagine everyone breaking out into song and dance… related to whatever topic is at hand? I have. I personally know at least one or maybe two others, for sure who have had this thought just like me. I believe that a strong like of musical theater is required. Maybe just a dash of mental instability for flavor thrown in.

Well… we’re not alone. Not only that. Someone actually went and did it. This is very cool. Srsly.

All the world’s a stage…

I just got back from watching Mask, a new musical on stage at the Pasadena Playhouse. Wow was it amazing. I actually won tickets to see this by calling our local NPR station, 89.3 KPCC. You know one of those.. “be our 3rd caller to win tickets to…” So, I actually won 2 tickets. (holy cow.. just found out that these tickets are $61 each O.o )

Both my mother and I really enjoyed the show. I laughed. I cried. I’m sure many of you haven’t heard of the movie Mask from the 80’s, which this is a musical adaptation of. It’s set in Azusa, California in the mid 70’s about a biker mother who’s addicted to drugs and her son who has a rare medical condition which deforms his face and the powerful relationship and struggles they have. Apparently this is based on a true story. It was a rock ‘n roll type musical. I have to say that a lot of the musical numbers were forgettable. The performances of the cast however, were just outstanding. I was really impressed by the acting especially Michelle Duffy who plays Rusty the ‘mom.’ If perchance you get the opportunity to see this I recommend it.  You will be touched.
