Hi y'all. Wew, this was a show to see. The dancing dollies was just what we needed and the $7.50 bargain seats meant we could take the whole host family, which is a must do when you go out while you are visiting and they expect you to go out and not hang around their living room waiting to be entertained which means you have to instead be ready to take them out and entertain them, wew. We just loved the whole dream sequence with the little plastic wigged out pinky piglets with wings what fluttered around and then lighted on the pond of water in the middle of the stage and then everybdy tried to understand all the symbolism so the lady in front of us, calling herself ReeNay kept yakking out what she thought was going on which was funny because she was clearly one of THEM, ya know, who didn't understand anything ever but didnt let that get in the way of yakking up the cool night scented air with Mary Alsis Maybees . Whoever Peena Bosch is she spends a lot of time in that Cafe` Mueller, or wherever and is happy to take you there to see things which really remain only scents, whisps, murmurings and glimpses of behavior misunderstood. The hot dogs were $6.50 at the first inning and $4.95 thereafter. More diversity.
