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.

Sounds like a great weekend! I didn't know Andrew Lloyd Webber did a production of "Oz" -- and I haven't heard of "Smash," so this was quite an educational post. :)

Rest up the next 5 days... another weekend looms somewhere.

You do get around, that's for sure. Not certain I know very many people who so much high-class fun as you do! :)

I'm going to check out "Smash," as I haven't heard of that, either.

We have a baby grand - but it's not white. Darn! It's used, though. Especially since the cats starting using it as a place to nest. Argh!

Your recap of your busy weekend omitted that you graciously allowed me to chop onions and garlic and Julie to assist with cooking a spectacular meal at our house before the theater.

A night out with the orchestra is always a good night.

Sounds like a busy but fun weekend.

I would have enjoyed that weekend. Can I admit that I have never heard of either Ms. Hilty or Smash? But, I have probably been multiple times to every Andrew Lloyd Webber extravaganza. True aficionados look down their noses at Webber's stuff, but I don't need to pretend to be a critic . . . I just go with the flow and have a good time.
