Last month, Charming took me to the city for a wonderful birthday date.
It began with a delicious meal at:
I had never been there before, but I had always wanted to try it out and I love cheesecake, so I figured it was a great fit.
Not to mention, it appealed to my unpredictable pregnancy appetite at the time.
So Charming sweetly indulged my request…..
….. And we all had a fantastic meal!
After that, we headed to the main event for the evening:
Just seeing this poster made me smile from head to toe!
I love the theater and I love Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, so it was the perfect gift!
We had never been to this theater before and immediately noticed the elaborate dragon themed decor.
My favorite was this intricate fellow who held up our chandelier.
Then we settled back to enjoy the show!
I wish I could say it was a fantastic show and worth every penny we spent.
It wasn’t. :(
There were certainly some thrilling dance scenes and musical numbers that we thoroughly enjoyed.
But the unexpected nudity and vulgarity that a few actors ad libbed into the show left a decidedly bad taste in our mouths.
And it certainly didn’t live up to the “Rated G” and “Great Family Entertainment” that was advertised on its website.
Which was a great disappointment to me because I had specifically paid attention to that before asking to see it.
So, I emailed the theater and told them how disappointed we were.
And they responded with a kind, respectful email detailing why they thought it was “Great Family Entertainment” and did deserve its “G Rating”.
After my email, they changed the rating on their website to “PG”.
And when I saw that, I scratched my head, squinted and said, “Hmmm….. That doesn’t quite make sense with what they told me…..”
So, now we know this theater isn’t a good fit for us and that their definition of “Family Entertainment” is not the same as ours.
But even with my disappointment, I still loved my cherished birthday date with My Love.
(And my pregnant belly still dreams about the yummy food at The Cheesecake Factory!)
So, thank you, My Love!!
You are wonderful.
