Fun on Saturday

Today after a morning yoga class, I went with Liz to SCR to see a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. It was a mix-and-match sort of affair, with rock music and dance numbers, splashy stage effects, and weird assorted costumes from various periods, from a Clockwork Orange Puck to a Victorian /early 60s stockbroker type set of Athenian officials, and a grab-bag of fairies. Still, it was all in good spirits, and quite appropriate in tone. I particularly liked the lovely lighting provided by a set of white illuminated umbrellas suspended from the ceiling, looking rather like translucent jellyfish. It was an enjoyable time, preceded by a wonderful lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant, one of my favorite places. The waiter who always helps me there told me he has been accepted to Harvard, and will soon be off to Cambridge MA, where he will study in the school of business!

So glad you and Liz had a wonderful time, Robbi! What fun! Did you go to the Vietnamese restaurant we all went to last time?

Robbi said...

Yes, Robin! Maybe we should stop off there again sometime soon?

Oh, that sounds like a delicious day! The fun part of mine was a Robert Burns party...

Mm, should like to go to the Vietnamese restaurant with you two!

A Robert Burns party? Wish I knew people who would go for such a thing here.
