Some days have themes. I don't necessarily post something in each of these topic areas every week.

Sunday: Church-related or spiritual things.

T is for Thoroughly

Thoroughly Modern Millie

In a competition for the world's best
stage directions, this one surely is in the top 10.

Originally opened on Broadway April 18, 2002. (A bunch of these have been April openers! And not a single one has landed on the anniversary date.)

Currently: check your local high school.

Music: Jeanine Tesori

Lyrics: Dick Scanlan

Book: Richard Morris & Dick Scanlan

Basis: 1967 film Thoroughly Modern Millie

Everybody knows about: Small town girl moves to the big city, immediately buys new clothes.

I have thoughts: It's remarkable how many of the actors from yesterday's two shows are also connected to today's show. I've never seen the stage version of this, only the movie with Julie Andrews, but the line that has stuck with me is, "What a wonderfully full life she lives!" And so may we all.

Are you planning to tap dance in a murderous rage today? Could be a fun weekend activity.

Christina played a wonderful Mrs. Meets at LCU. One of my favorite plays.
