Really Big Shows.
The husband and I were busy having fun this week. We went to one shows each night on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and each was great.
Thursday night, we went to see Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me. Yes, yes, we went to see a radio show. Wait Wait recorded a show up here in Seattle, and we watched them do it. It was hilarious. I don't know if it was Carlin's passing, or something special about Seattle, but the live show was pretty blue. (By blue, I mean blue smoke.) You can listen to the broadcasted version here.
Friday night, we went to see the astonishingly fabulous Circus Contraption: The SHOW to End All SHOWS. This local non-profit group preforms an old fashioned circus act - trapeze, stunt show, with shockingly modern trappings. If you'll be in Seattle within the next week, I demand that you go see this show. (OK - children and all but the most hip of retirees are pardoned.) This was a great show; a skillful performance that was tremendously involving. This show will stick with me for a long time. It was a real treat to see it.
Last night, we saw WALLE. Pixar's newest feature is a robot love story, and is also a great show, which I'm sure you'll get to see. Is it wrong if beautiful pictures of outer space my eyes water up a bit?
