Although I have attended many performances at Tucson's beautiful Temple of Music and Art, I had never been to a show at their upstairs theatre - the Cabaret. Running there now is Neil Simon's Pulitzer Prize winning drama, "Lost in Yonkers." It is a delight! The intimate theatre size perfectly complements the tone for the play - set entirely in a Yonkers living room during WWII. It runs through next weekend and tickets are through Arizona Rose Theatre. You will enjoy this!

pitaya. It is so vibrantly colored and so beautiful I stopped to admire it at the store. It is commonly called "Dragon Fruit." It is remarkable, don't you think? How have you prepared it?

Arizona Opera company. The AZ Opera splits its time between performing in Tucson and in Phoenix. This particular production was written in German by a Hungarian composer who had never been to Arizona! It is reminiscent of the grand musicals of the golden age of Hollywood -- Oklahoma! comes to mind. This show is sung in English, Spanish, and German and tells the tale of a great race horse - Arizona Lady - who wins the Kentucky Derby. Fun!

Here's a post from Oct 8, 2009 that shows a vintage poster from the 1800's advertising "An Arizona Cowboy," playing in the the Big Tent Theatre. All good fun at Tucson's beloved Trail Dust Town, the little themed western town where you can stroll around, sit in the charming gazebo, and maybe see a shoot out gunfight! Some things stay the same - happily!

Gaslight Theatre and always enjoy them but I just learned about a really fun addition to the show - the After Show! The Gaslight calls this their "Olio" and I never stayed for it because it was once described to me as a singalong with the band. Meh.
This time we stayed and to my delight and surprise there is another show - very short - but very fun. The "olio" that follows the Henry Porter show has a Muppets theme. One of my favorite things of all time! And so here is Fozzie Bear after the show. Fun, fun, fun!
