Jim and I are going to the Jimmy Buffet concert tomorrow. Now, we're not official 'Parrotheads' (which apparently are what the die-hard fans call themselves) but this summer Jim and I were down the Cape with my sister's family and their friends they told us they had some extra tickets and asked us if we were interested in going to the concert. They eventually talked us into it, with the promise of fun, fun, fun - so we're going. Of course, that was long before Tropical Storm Hannah reared her ugly, wet, and windy head. Because of her, the concert time was moved from 8pm to 3pm...which I think is SOOO much better (Act One Finale of Legally Blonde anybody? Nobody.). Hopefully the change in time will get us out of there before she hits. Not that we're expecting anything more than rain and some possibly strong winds, but it'll be nice to not have to deal with being soaked at the concert.
We're not exactly sure what to expect, but we're hoping we have fun. Look for a full report on Monday.
In other random news, I just read that Christy Carlson Romano is joining the Broadway cast of 'Avenue Q'. Now, being the COMPLETE musical theatre freak that I am, I know her from her career as a 'Broadway Kid' in such shows as 'The Will Rogers Follies', 'The Sound of Music' and 'Parade'....she also eventually went on to be one of several Broadway Belles in 'Beauty and the Beast'. The general public (especially those with children) would know her as the voice of Kim Possible on the Disney animated series Kim Possible. I didn't know that she's also a published author, but apparently she is. Very cool.
The thing I love is that by casting her in this show, they CLEARLY they aren't casting her for her Disney fan base. In case you aren't aware, 'Avenue Q' is a very adult musical. Christy will be simulating full-on puppet sex, while operating a totally nude, female, monster puppet. Go Disney! :-)
I'm sure all the loons over at All That Chat (on Talkinbroadway.com) will still be screaming about stunt casting. Maybe they'll surprise me...but I highly doubt it.
That's all for now...have a wild and crazy (but safe!) weekend.
PS - Kitchen Nightmares had it's season premiere last night. It was awesome...and yes, I cried. More than once....which I'm totally fine with.
