We Meet Again Tour – 27 May 2018

IMG-7453The Sunday, May 27 tour began with worship at First Presbyterian Church in Whitestone. In the evening, with recommendations from son Sean and friend Patrick in hand, Tricia and I went to the Circle in the Square Theater to see Once on This Island.

A marvelous show! Well staged. Well played. A wonderful evening.

We’re on our way to buying the soundtrack.

Check it out!!

We Meet Again Tour – 29 December 2017, #2

On a cold December night, Tricia and I wandered out of the warmth of the Shire to see Mark Rylance in Farinelli and the King.

We chose the play because Rylance was the star (the King). It was great.
