Judy and I saw Cabaret last Thursday at Drury Lane. The set was really interesting and unusual. I loved it. And, the cast was large and very good. The costumes are beautiful, as is the cast. All in all, I enjoyed it very much. I had seen it on stage before, but not for some time, and had kind of forgot what the story was about. Definitely not an 'upper'. It's against the rules to take pictures or record any portion of the show, but I didn't think there would be any objection to taking a picture of the 'set' so I did. Judy wasn't so sure... We always meet early and enjoy and nice dinner and catching up, before the show. The food is excellent, so it's a nice treat every so often. The Subscription includes 5 or 6 plays a season, I can't remember for sure. This has been a great season. Next is Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Funny Girl is the last, opening in Jan. 2010. BTW, K wasn't there this time.
Graduated from Lake Park H S in Medinah, went to secretarial school, worked a few years, married and had 3 great kids. I have 2 grandsons, 4 grand dogs (Griffons)& 2 grand cats (Maine Coon). When my first 2 children were in grade school I was a professional volunteer, active in PTA, Elmhurst Children’s Theatre & Church stuff. I started a small business while expecting my third and have been working ever since. I'm a fibre artist combining cloth, yarn, and photography. Carolee Creations, Inc. is the corporate name - SewSweet Dolls was the first business. Portrait Pillows, Bags and more . . . is my latest venture, started in ‘98, after my husband died. My daughter and I make custom gift items incorporating photographs - purses, coasters, jewelry, ornaments, quilts, etc. I love going to work every day-my studio is full of fun things! I am in a serious relationship with Bob, a retired Psychology prof, since the beginning of the century. We are involved in activities at First Church and in Elmhurst. When we have time we like to travel. I take sewing classes when I can fit them in, recently learned to weave, and would like to draw and paint again someday.
