This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

I've Missed Live Theatre!!!

Thanks to the generosity of our good friends Joel and Sheila Lewis, Lyn and I had the privilege of experiencing an evening at the "theahtuh" tonight.  Being a drama-type person, I'm embarrassed to say that after nearly 19 years of being in southern California, it was my/our first time to walk through the doors of South Coast Repertory. It won't be our last.

The show tonight was TAKING STEPS, a contemporary British farce.  It was brilliantly funny. It reminded me a lot of some of the vintage Neil Simon plays--which makes sense since it was written in 1979 by one of Simon's contemporaries, playwright Alan Ayckbourn.

It plays through June 15, and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys great writing, physical humor, amazing acting, and brilliant directing. I'd see it three or four more times if I had the opportunity. Way fun!!!  Thanks Joel and Sheila!!!
