Just returned from an evening at the thee-ah-tah, where I saw Steel Magnolias. We have a subscription, so we get the season’s tickets mailed way in advance. Came home from work, gobbled down a quick dinner, grabbed the tickets and headed out the door absolutely convinced we were on our way to see “Kiss Me Kate,” a Cole Porter musical. Only when entering the thee-ah-tah did we realize that “Kiss Me Kate” is the next play of the season.
“Steel Magnolias” was good, but I was ready for a musical. I suppose I have made worse mistakes. It ain’t easy being a patron of the arts.
