The Kit Kat Club Opens in Tucson ~

The world-famous musical Cabaret is playing in Tucson. The show is presented by Broadway in Tucson and runs through this weekend. It's a shame it is playing in Centennial Hall, a venue (unfortunately) known for its terrible acoustics. You will certainly enjoy the well-known tunes, the cast, and the choreography but the funny and snarky "asides" and much of the dialogue disappear into the void of this badly designed space.

Tucson tourism ~ another iconic motel


I just love the old neon signs around town and this one for the Arizona Motel captures the mood of the last century when automobile travel was a true American past time. It wasn't until I looked at their website, though, that I really appreciated how long this motel has been welcoming tourists. Their website has fantastic vintage photos!
