We have been to darling stepdaughter’s college play “Two Gentlemen of Verona: The love-rock musical adapted from Shakespeare.” No really, that’s the title. I love, love, love Shelby, but it is hard to know exactly what to say after an afternoon like the one I have just had.
“We are so proud of you!”
“Wow! Who knew a Chinese dragon and sombreros could be incorporated into Shakespeare?”
“I think my favorite song was ‘I Come from the Land of Betrayal.'”
It wasn’t the cast. Truly it wasn’t. It was the show. Bless their hearts.
Oh my stars! I have just looked it up on Wikipedia. It won the Tony for best musical in 1972. I will be darned. It just goes to show . . . something, doesn’t it?
