My One and Only

Yesterday, Arlington and I went to see our cousin, Kirsten, perform as Mickey in "My One and Only" which is playing now at the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, CT.
If you are in or around the area, you should take in this show.  It is funny and fun and has tons of dancing.  And Kirsten is DOWN RIGHT HILARIOUS - loved her character.  She did a fantastic job and I am so glad we had a chance to see her perform.
Arlington and I had a chance to have dinner with Kirsten before the show, and Arlington drew her some pictures for her dressing room.  Kirsten was very sweet and hung them up and Arlington ate that up.  Arlington was also excited that everyone from the show commented on her drawings when she met them after the show was over.
After the show, it was kid's night, so the kids could get the autographs of everyone in the show.  Arlington loved this - she liked seeing the people and their costumes up close.
After the autographs, Kirsten took her to her dressing room and showed her around.  Arlington got to see her pictures hanging up and spend some more time with members of the cast.
The cast was really sweet to her - kept bringing her different hats from the show to try on.  Arlington loves dress up almost more than anything else, so she was having the time of her life.
Most of these pictures are from the side because Arlington couldn't stop looking at herself in the mirror. 

She even did a few dances for the cast members in some of the hats.  She was hamming it up.

So - it was a great time.  If you want to read more about Goodspeed, go HERE.  You can follow the link to read about the show.
