Not a typical week - but a great week!

Paris Opera Ballet at Millenium Park.
We love going to concerts and plays! We don't do it very often, but in the past week or so - we've seen three great performances! We saw the musical play, "The Light in the Piazza", at Theo Ubique in Chicago. A dear friend recommended it - and we are so glad we went! It was outstanding!
Featured in a supporting role is Justin Adair, who was a high school classmate of our daughter, Emily. Justin sang like an angel back then, and now - oh my goodness, he is amazing! A lovely, strong, rich lyric baritone voice, with the sweetest high notes, too - and a great actor, too - Justin just received the Jeff Award (the Chicago version of the Tony Awards) for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical. If you go here, you can hear him singing a selection from the show.
We also were able to attend not one but two performances at Chicago's wonderful Millenium Park. Don't you love the Pritzker Pavillion, designed by Frank Gehry?
We attended opening night of the Grant Park Symphony, and also a very special performance by the...Paris Ballet! They were performing live, in the Harris Theater (located behind the pavillion), and it was projected onto a HUGE, state-of-the-art screen, on the stage. We sat on the grass, had a picnic, and enjoyed the Paris Ballet. What a night!
