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.
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.
