My Town Monday: Living the LIfe of Riley in San Diego

Cats, playing at the San Diego Civic Theater (photo credit: http://www.mamarazziknowsbest.com)

Late yesterday afternoon, Kathy Krevat, one of my writing critique partners phoned with an extra ticket for the play Cats.

As I'm not usually given to bouts of spontaneity, the Summy family was surprised that I agreed to go. But am I ever glad I did!

Kathy has special, high-falutin' President's Club tickets for the San Diego Civic Theater!


Here Kathy and I are entering the theatre through the special President's Club door. This leads to our close-to-the-stage seats. (I don't think my Droid camera likes the rain; hence the blurry photo)

Before the show, we ordered our complimentary drinks so that they'd be waiting for us at intermission.

Our drinks were indeed awaiting at a little table with Kathy's name.

I enjoyed Cats. Although definitely light in the plot area, I loved the singing and dancing and costumes. But, mostly, I loved hanging out with Kathy. On the spur of the moment.


Here's wishing you a very happy Monday. I'm this week's hostess. If you toss up a My Town Monday post, let me know here or on the official My Town Monday blog, and I'l link to you on both.

Cats is awesome, isn't it? It came to Dayton a couple years ago. Not much of a story, but the singing and dancing is incredible! I'm like you - I usually don't do spontaneous, but it just goes to show that sometimes we need to.

You had me when you got to pre-order your drinks. Sounds like a great night!

Jeannette: I think you're right. It's good to be spontaneous from time to time. I must do it again!

Sounds like a great time. Believe it or not, I've never seen Cats.

Barrie said...

Tania: That part was really quite exciting!

Barrie said...

Susan: I'd never seen it before last night. And while I enjoyed it, I probably won't see it again. The dancing and the costumes were, for me, the best parts. But I do like more of a story. Luckily, I'd read the play, or I'm not sure I would've been able to follow along too well.

I'm so behind on movies, plays, etc. But I did see Cats maybe 20 years ago or so. Best part was the hit song Memory (or is it Memories?). And I'll always remember the fat cat. (There was a fat cat, right?)
