Friday was Date Night. Steve mustered up last minute tickets to The Wizard of Oz at the Orpheum Theater. I don't get to downtown Minneapolis often, so we left right after work and got there early enough to shop, eat, and explore. We found a Len Druskin outlet store that I didn't know existed. The only one I knew of was at Southdale Mall, where I purchased this crazy sweater a couple years ago. Everything there is at least 50% off. I could've spent many hours and dollars just at the jewelry table, but resisted. Steve bought a really nice pair of dress shoes which he badly needed.
We visited the massive Macy's where I bought a blazer and sweater on clearance. Then off to the 2-story Target where I found the bike of my dreams. I'm going to save my pennies and buy it THIS SEASON. It's just a little matter of spending self-control.
The play was really, really good. I didn't grow up watching Dorothy, so I didn't notice changes to the story or script like I'm sure many others did, including Steve. The most impressive thing about the production (for me) was little Toto, likely the most well behaved little dog I'd ever seen! He had a surprising amount of stage time. Even with a lot of singing and dancing going on around him, he always remained perfectly placed...usually in Dorothy's arms.
There were many little Dorothy's in the audience all dressed in blue gingham dresses, pigtails, and ruby slippers...cuteness personified. Had I known that we'd be seeing The Wizard, I would've worn my shiny reds too.
