A day of theater fun.

We had quite a day Sunday. Went to our film club and saw an excellent film "My Old Lady" with Kevin Kline, Maggie Smith and Kristin Scott Thomas. (see the trailer in previous blog)

After that, drove to San Diego to the theater and saw a wonderful updated version of "Kiss Me Kate".

 It was great. We had gone to see it previously and one of the cast members was taken sick and they canceled the performance. Thanks to Marge for getting us the tickets- each time.

From a review:
“Kate” is, in its own over-the-top way, a complex piece of work — a play-within-a-play that pairs Shakespeare with the tropes of mid-20th-century musical comedy.

Here's some of the memorable songs-
Wonderbar
So in love
Tom, Dick, Or Harry
Why can't you behave?
Always true to you in my fashion
From this moment on
and of course- Kiss me Kate.
