All aboard the theater bus
I have so many things to write about stacking up lately, so I finally need to mention seeing Kirk German, my pal and singer for the Greatest American Heroes, staring in Temple Civic Theater's production of the musical She Loves Me! Kirk does lots of theater work, but this time he had the lead in a cool show, which happened to be an hour's drive away. His parents were so thrilled that they chartered a bus for all of Kirk's friends, and it was a really fun trip! This was an amazing luxury bus with a bathroom and everything, and it was jam-packed with artsy folk (so we got to hear several live selections from Cabaret and Man of La Mancha). The show was really well done, and Kirk was fantastic. He's really natural onstage, and it was great to see him in his true element. (I wasn't overly impressed with the music itself, since some of the songs were a little so-so, but everyone's performance was wonderful, and the story was heartwarming.) After the show, we waited in the mile-long line to congratulate Kirk, and then enjoyed the comfortable ride home. It was a great evening of entertainment with friends! There are lots of nice photos of the production on the theater website, so take a look at the show.
