Last night Brian and I went to the Muny to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. It was 106 degrees according to Brian's phone when we got there, but it was one of the best nights I have ever had at The Muny. Here we are at The Culver Pavilion, an open air restaurant that has a few dining times before the show. We decided to eat at 7pm, and then we would have plenty of time to get seated before the musical started at 8:15pm. Also, in this photo you'll see my Maxi dress that I found at the White House Black Market, I plan to wear it again in Paris. I also got a really cute white jacket to go with it so that I can wear it to work (we must have sleeves at work). That store is amazingballs, they made me try on about 6 different Maxi dresses and I had to model them in front of the design consultant and mirrors, and she helped me make the final decision. I felt like a rockstar... but, really I'm not. Ha. I also found a nice black dress at Express, you'll have to wait till photos from my trip to see that one!
Here is a photo of my second plate... There was a huge selection... they had 3 different salads, fruit, rolls, cheese plate and all kinds of different crackers, then au gratin potatoes, pasta primavera, delicious fried shrimp, and carved roast. etc, etc. We had a lemon cheesecake for dessert.
It was SO hot outside, that we actually saw our cold butter melt right before our very eyes. It was a little funny (or maybe we were just giddy from the heat), so of course I had to share a picture of it.
This is how close the stage was to us! We sat in the box section, it was a lot of fun because some of the dancers came off the stage at the end and were right next to us! Usually I sit in the nose bleed section, where you cannot even see their facial expressions, BUT Brian says if we are going to go see a show, we need to SEE the show... so, I enjoyed these seats tremendously!
The show was REALLY good... Joseph's story from the Bible is one of my favorites, so of course I wasn't sure what to expect as I had never seen this musical before. But, the cast was AMAZING, and we even spotted Elvis. I really think this was one of the best performances I have seen at The Muny, and I have been going for years.
