We went to see Paula Poundstone last night. Back in the fall, I received an email from the Grand Opera House offering a nice discount if you sighed up for three shows in the upcoming season. I saw a number I liked, and booked right away. I must have been one of the first folks to do this because when I checked available seats, almost everything was still open. Naturally, I took front row center on the aisle!
You can’t photograph during the show, but this is where Paula performed. I was close enough to see the details on her 101 dalmatians tie and her Three Stooges suspenders. Great show – not so much a series of jokes as a running dialogue with the audience for an hour and a half.
By the way, has everyone noticed that this day is a palindrome? (01/22/10)
PS – the other two shows are Arlo Guthrie and the Smothers Brothers
