Kinky Boots


Our evening in Times Square wouldn't be complete without a visit to the theater. My choice for today -- yes, I am a letter behind -- and for the letter "K" is the new musical, "Kinky Boots." One, it begins with K and two, next weekend I will be seeing it. I don't generally get tickets for new musicals, but my friend, Sue has been eager to see it. She will be visiting from Florida and our friend, Lonni, will join us from Connecticut for a girlfriend weekend in New York City. One of Sue's friends is the assistant choreographer and we will meet him after the show at the stage door. Stage Door Buttercup is pretty excited at the thought.

The musical is based on the movie of the same name, which I enjoyed a lot. I am sure this will be a fun and lively theater afternoon. Yes, we're going to the matinee. I've come to love matinees and and find it's my most wide awake time of day.

We're really in springtime here. The sun was glorious today and it was warm enough for a spring jacket. Tulips are blooming and I think I can put my gloves away until the fall. My Bible study group met today and we began our study of Ecclesiastes. We go very slowly through the text and we only made it through the first nine verses. But our conversation was thoughtful, interesting and as with the best study and discussion gave me lots to think about.

Our featured blogger for today is Crystal Collier. Crystal is the newest citizen of Buttercupland and writes a very interesting blog. I am looking forward to getting to know her.

I'm a little stumped finding my wish for today. Somehow, have a kinetic Sunday wasn't quite right, so I am skipping ahead to "L."

Have a Lovely Sunday!

I'm jealous of your weather. When I left to volunteer at our library today it was 42 and snowing. I am really sick of this winter.

Isn't it great to see spring blooms after the winter? Let us know about the play!

Hope your Sunday is a lovely one too! It's been chilly and raining here this week and I had to get the winter coat and gloves back out of my closet. Glad it is warmer there for you!

I want to see Kinky Boots. We went to Hands on a Hardbody- apparently the fastest closing musical of this season, (but we enjoyed it) and the guy next to us said we had to see Kinky Boots! Hope you enjoy it- I expect you will love it!

Aw! Thanks for the feature, Carol. Do you know how appropriate this is? My hubby and I wrote a musical that will one day see its way onto a Broadway stage--when we have enough energy to jump back in and make it happen. (http://www.immortalthemusical.com) I'm looking forward to getting to know you as well. =)

You aren't as far behind as me! And I am just reading the blogs!!! Not writing the alphabet posts.
I am really out of the loop - - - have not heard of that play or the movie.
