DINNER 140: Saturday, May 20, 2006
Tonight was closing night of Wendy’s show, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, and the 17th season at Falcon Theater.
Wendy & I drove down to the theater together, though I had to go back out shortly after arriving — seems that the actor playing Audrey II couldn’t get his car started, so I rode while Mark drove to get Tony & his wife. On the ride over, I gobbled down my Mandarin Chicken Salad from Wendy’s. We got Tony & his wife back to the theater with minutes to spare before the show sold out to yet-another sold-out audience.
The show went really well, and almost nobody threw up during it!
We had a cast party at the theater — the first time we tried this — and most of us brought food. I brought some nice chipotle salsa, some peanut butter cookies, and some banana bread. Among the other items there was pizzas, a wonderfully decorated sheet-cake (made by our own Anna, the puppeteer), and loads of adult beverages. I was standing behind the bar and asked one of the young chorus girls what she wanted to drink. She said, “What are you serving?”, to which I replied, “I think I’m serving a minor!”.
We ended around 1:30am and headed home, tired but happy.
