Pull up a chair. Let's talk.

Wicked Observations

The Queen and I went to see Wicked last night.  The most important thing I learned was that The Avett Brothers and Brandi Carlile will be in town on September 12.

Beyond that, I also learned this.

If you operate a theater and have a strict “no pictures” policy, you should probably have your PA announcer mention that every five minutes or so because every time somebody walks in and takes their seat they’re going to want to take a picture of the stage.  The poor usher in our section was frantic, trying to keep people from taking pictures.

If you operate a theater, I think the women’s restroom should be five times larger than the men’s.  Not the same size.  Because let’s get real, generally speaking, more women go to the theater than men.  The lines were ridiculously long for the women’s restroom last night.  So long that, as I walked out of the men’s restroom, one intrepid woman barged into the men’s restroom to use one of the stalls.  Which … well … I get the frustration … but … that’s one of our sanctums, ladies.  There are rules, both written and unwritten, about what can and cannot happen in a men’s restroom.  When you violate the boundaries it’s like … well … as though the earth were to tilt on its axis.  What would happen?  Balance is lost.  Our equilibrium (well, what we have of it anyway) is shattered.  We are left mumbling and muttering.  “What’s she doing in here?”  “Wait, there’s a woman in the bathroom?”  “Nose to the wall, guys.”  “Don’t.  Move.”   So, yes, you’re frustrated, but show a little respect for the weaker sex.  That’s our place.


And, one final observation.  That is one loooooong musical.  Entertaining, but just too long.

    Guilty…can’t say why, medical reason, but I guess I can say, “I’m sorry.”

      Medical reasons are a valid excuse. And as somebody who has frequently had a serious need to go and go now and when confronted with a line experienced minor panic, I totally get it.
