Thoroughly Modern Millie at the 5th Avenue: Elisa and I went to see Thoroughly Modern Millie Saturday night at the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle.  The play is a fun, musical farce and when I saw an ad for it I was interested in going; then we were lucky enough to get two tickets on Friday.  The best part of the musical for me was the part where Millie's boss is stricken with Miss Dorothy and then dance: the dancing was wonderfully athletic and elegant.

It was the first time I'd been to the 5th Avenue Theatre, too.  WOW.  It's a good size theater with three levels and very ornate wood carvings, inspired by Chinese decorating.  Walking up to our aisle filled me with a sense of awe and expectation I hadn't felt in a long time.  The sound was great.  The stage lighting wasn't.

And I saw the most creative use of subtitles in a musical in a long time (if not ever).


Stuff going on with EricRi. Yeah. Grey-beard geeking it in the Northwest.
