I had a full Fresno weekend — and the fact the weather was gorgeous made it even better.
On Friday night I went to see the opening of “Time Again in Oz,” the new musical at Fresno State. (I’ll be posting my review by tomorrow.)
On Saturday afternoon it was the annual Fig Garden Home Tour. Ah, the joys of putting on little blue booties and tramping through the houses of people who have a lot more disposable income than I. Best house: a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired modernist oasis of light on Santa Ana Avenue.
Then, early Saturday evening, it was a packed house at Starline for Swede Fest. My faves: “Back to the Future” (by Luke Moritz & Nick Blanchard), “Chicago” (by Jessika Satori), “Pulp Fiction” (by Kevin Searcy) and “Forrest Gump” (by Heather McLane and James McLane). Most embarrassing moment: When I mistook a woman with red hair sitting in front of me as Heather, tapped her on the shoulder from behind and then pivoted around to face her with a big “Hi, Heather!”, only to discover she was Not Heather. Sheepish, I retreated to my corner and wouldn’t even go to say hi to the real Heather when I spotted her in the audience.
And on Sunday afternoon, I made it out to the last performance of “Havin’ a Hot Flash” at the Tower Theatre, where I was very much outnumbered in the audience by women who have experienced said phenomenon. A review on that to come, too.
What fun stuff did you do?
