Ouiser not Weeezeeeer!

Yes, I am ashamed to admit that in the years of loving this movie, I had no idea how to spell Ouiser! I do not read the jackets on the movie- that only reminds me that the characters aren’t really real and to be honest I don’t like to think of that. Call it a reality clash, I prefer to think of it as a journey into the life of another person. After all I was Psych major, people fascinate me-sometimes in good ways, sometimes in bad, but it is all still fascinating!

I did something last night that I have been wanting to do since I moved “out here” to the stix. I have forever been wanting to go to a production at the Gaslight Theater at the Renaissance Center. Me and my best girls trucked it out to the center last night to see D’s friend, Anna, rock it out playing the lead of Shelby in Steel Magnolias. Let me preface by saying that I think the fact that Anna does this as her full time job is so inspiring. She loves it and you can tell! She breathes it, she lives it- it is her passion. If we all could only be so lucky to find our “niche” in the world and run with it full force, no holds bar! She and the whole cast were so excellent! We chopped on yummy Southern entrees and bleeding armadillo grooms cake and got one of the best shows I have EVER seen!

I was just a tad apprehensive in going because when someone ever tries to do any kind of take on a classic it makes me nervous. I usually feel that perfection should not be messed with. Same with portrayal of endeared characters. I have standards that are hard to live up to in the representation of beloved character figures. For this whole reason I usually HATE sequels- with a few rare exceptions, but that is for another day. We laughed, we cried (alot), we had an excellent experience! The women that made up the cast were passionate and professional, alive and engrossed in their characters, they sold it and they did it with a bang. It was excellent. All you Nashvegasites need to trek out to the RCenter too, it is worth all of the time and expense, all while supporting a great cause.
