    SWMBO and another couple arranged our New years eve several months ago. I had put it out of my mind until Dec 29th when I was reminded we were going to the Winspear Opera House to see Book of Mormon.
    Now I had very little doubt I was in for a couple/three hours of excruciating boredom and angst. I'm pleased to report I am still eating a heaping plate of crow. BOM was amazing. Absolutely the funniest thing I've seen in quite some time. The production was first rate with a touring cast that belongs on Broadway. The female lead's singing was mesmerizing. The musicians incredible.
    If you have the opportunity to see this show, I recommend you do so. You WILL have a terrific time.
    I'm still not a lover of the musical but BoM is in a different class.

    DFW residents. If you have an opportunity to visit ATTPAC/Winspear, you should. Beautiful place.

    Glad you enjoyed it. It's funny how some forms of music are hard to appreciate unless it is live.

    Crow... another dish that needs just the right marinade. :(

    Glad you had a good time. Initially, I was thinking minus man card for going to a musical. But, then plus man card for keeping the Mrs. happy. So, that evens out to man card status quo. ;)

    I'm in the RED. I have show tunes for earworms now.

    I advise growing a big beard and chopping down a tree as soon as possible in order to make a proper recovery. Better wear flannel while doing it, just to be sure.

    Glad you enjoyed it. I used to feel the same way until both of my kids started playing in pit orchestras. Now I am kinda hooked.

    I ate a big bowl of stewed crow too. Without salt.

    Like anything else there are good shows and bad, but it is a really cool form of entertainment.

    Book of Mormon is absolutely hilarious! It's not what you think at all. Highly irreverent, funny as heck, but with some poignant moments. Very entertaining! Glad you enjoyed it @Omaney!

    Okay since we're talking musicals, I'll throw this out. Over the last several years, I've seen the following: "The Millon Dollar Quartet", "Jersey Boys", and "An American in Paris". All top notch productions. No man card demerits involved.

    I took my late GF to Die Dreigroschenoper and a local production of The Mikado. When you hear your lady humming Pirate Jenny or making up a list with that gleem in her eye you know it was worth it.
