I’m posting this BEFORE I go to Starlight Theatre tonight, to see Guys and Dolls…
You know, just in case. That way, since it’s the undisputed world’s best musical, if I’m struck by lightning, I’ll at least die happy.
The forecast tonight is for scattered thunderstorms, eg 40%. As opposed to this afternoon’s isolated thunderstorms, which are just 30%. And no, I am not taking KSHB TV weatherwonk Gary Lezak. Nor mixed up presidential wannabe Michelle Bachmann’s kid bro, KCTV’s Gary Amble.
I’m roughing it.
So thank gawd, Guys and Dolls runs through this Sunday because the weekend forecast is clear.
Because if you only go to one musical in your entire lifetime, it should be Guys and Dolls.
The story was written by Damon Runyon. You know, the crazy journalist that was born in Manhattan KS but made it big in the Big Apple. Not an easy feat.
And here’s my promise, guys: Take your gal to Guys and Dolls –and you’ll get laid.
I think it may even say as much on the back of the ticket – in the really fine print. And tickets start at only 10 bucks. That’s cheaper than a lap dance from Black Barbie…
And ya gotta love Hearne…
I ask him what happens if it rains the night I do the review and he brushes it off with, “Take a poncho.”
