Tweet of the day: Bulldog football (and cabaret) edition


Beehiver Kathy and I attended different events last night. She went to the Fresno State football game, and I went to a goodbye cabaret for local actor Ashley Taylor, who’s moving to New York.

Kathy’s event started at 7:30 p.m., and she got home at 1 a.m.

My event started at 10 p.m., and I was home by midnight. I’m very satisfied with my choice for evening activity.

You can read much more about the game in large quantities in the rest of The Bee. (Don’t miss the Bee photo gallery — lots of great pics there.)

As for Ashley’s farewell, which was held at The Voice Shop, it was “Astonishing.” (That’s the title of the song from “Little Women” that Ashley picked as her last song, minus all the trumpets. Move over, Sutton Foster.) Two of my favorite moments: Danielle Jorn offering a cross-species performance with the song “Velociraptor” and Kyle Lowe closing the evening with an exquisitely performed version of “I and Love and You.” No one knows how to send off a person to New York in style like the theater community.

You got home at midnight, Donald. I got home from Ashley’s Cabaret-times at 2 a.m. It is kicking my butt today, but there is nothing quite like a night where lots of different kinds of theater people hang out in a pub together in honor of one of their own.

We should do it more often!

I’m so happy it was emotional and exciting night for theater and sports fans alike. :)

Last night was a perfect reminder of how amazing this community is, and how lucky I am to be a part of it.

I can’t wait to come back and see what incredible stuff is happening next.

I already miss it. Too much.
