Culture. Moi?

Found out over the weekend that Lady J and I might have somewhat different ideas about how we want to take advantage of being in Chicago. I started talking about the Cubs and da Bulls and she came back with the Joffrey and opera. There are areas where we do cross over - we both love live jazz and live theater and live classical performances, as well as rawk clubz. Neither of us are particularly fond of blues but I'm willing to give it a try. But she is decidedly not a sports fan - our occasional outings to the local AAA ballpark are more for people-watching and good, cheap food and beer. And I am decidedly not a fan of opera or dance, although I did agree to be dragged to the ballet if she really had to. Just to be a little snarky, I told her that only if someone is doing Nixon In China is she going to get me to the opera.

Well, lo and behold...

Guess I'm stuck.


  • Any interest in "Monty Python's Spamalot"? It's running late April and early May at the Cadillac Palace Theater and tickets are going fast. Weekends work best for yours truly.

  • I'd love to see Spamalot - even though there doesn't appear to be anyone that I've ever heard of in the touring cast.

    I guess it's the closest thing to an opera that I'll be able to coax Southern Boy into!

  • Too bloody right!! Let me spend a minute with my calendar and I'll email you with what weekends I think we'll be in the city (thinking at this point that I/we will be running home every other weekend to take care of things). Lady J's already talking about Wicked as well... :-)
