Your cousin comes to Americay and you being the big city cousin think you know best and say that a Broadway show is a must. There is probably some truth to that, but there is also truth to the fact that if you are me, you just want to see another big Broadway musical. But it comes across like total caring about their good time which translates to total redeemable cousin points later. Unless, of course, they want to see Rent or Mama Mia. Then all negotiations would be left on the table.
Well, Cousin Fidelma and I went to see Hairspray. I was going for big, splashy, fun musical. Boy did I pick right. We got great seats and had such a good time. It was a total joy from beginning to end. In fact, ONE of us could not stop singing and dancing out in the street. It was embarrassing for one of us.
The childlike wonderment. So touching.
