An Entertaining Weekend
The weekend is officially over and what a busy weekend it was. Starting with the Hoop Dance competitions at the Heard Museum that I featured yesterday and then Saturday night a Phoenix Symphony event featuring Megan Hilty. Are there any fans of the short-lived television series "Smash" out there? Megan Hilty was one of the costars of that show playing the role of Ivy Lynn, a role billed as the "seasoned triple-threat". Being a huge fan of the musical theatre, I was one of many who hated to see the demise of that show with it's brilliant music and talented actors.
I was thrilled when Megan sang one of my all-time favorite songs from that show, "Second Hand White Baby Grand". Check it out if you haven't heard it before.
I know that isn't a white baby grand to the left but it is second hand so it will have to do.
Sunday night it was the Andrew Lloyd Webber production of "The Wizard of OZ". That was also an excellent production with all the music we know and love and a few new songs to enjoy.
Whew! Busy weekend indeed.
