So yeah, I've been writing reviews like mad, and I haven't even been able to link to them here because, er, I've been going out too much to do any of my diary blogging. Last night I saw yet ANOTHER ballet, one that wasn't even the Bolshoi or the Mikhailovsky: it was the new production by Carlos Acosta, my "dancer of Great Note" since I've been here (and a show I was able to drag mabel_morgan to, to my pleasure). I'm sort of sad to say that I hated the show, but my anger at the money I wasted on my tickets is being tempered by the fantastic traffic it's bringing to my theater reviews blog. Until today, my busiest day had been Tuesday, May 25, 2010, when I had 493 visitors; when I checked an hour ago, my blog was already at 464 for the day. And THAT is something worth being happy about - it certainly justifies the effort I made to get my review up before I went to bed.
Meanwhile tonight I'm off to Above the Stag to see "Blink! Twice," a production of great songs from forgotten musicals. I saw their previous show "Blink! And you missed it" and loved it, so I have high hopes for this show (though I know I'd enjoy it more if I had someone to go see with me). Seriously, though, I have been burning the candle at both ends for the last two months and I need to slow down; hopefully an extra round of Pilates next month will help get me to normal levels as the candle has been getting rather short.
Oh yeah, I had a great visit with my uncle in Munich last weekend. He's been really depressed most of the last yeaer; hopefully I can tempt him out of his shell and convince him to spend some more time with me next year, and maybe get him to do some travelling with me.
