I love the theater.

This weekend I have gone to see Hellboy 2 starring Ron Perlman, and Opera Unlimited's Gondaliers starring a bunch of teenagers, small children and my little brother, Monkey Lord. I'm sure you can guess which one was a box office smash, and which one ruined any joy I'll ever have in musical theater again. (I'm kidding, it was an adorable play. And the folks at Opera Unlimited are doing an amazing job introducing opera to children who normally would never be exposed to such a beautiful art.)

Being homeschooled, I thought Monkey Lord was going to avoid all of the painfully horrible highschool drama club plays. But no... I was wrong. And thank god for that!! Because he participated in Opera Unlimited's Day Camp, I got to see him dance around the stage in this:

Gawd, I love the theater.

OH! hellboy 2... was it something andy could watch? he's seen van helsing and underworld 1 (not evolution, the sex scene was simply too much for him otherwise he would be able to see it.)

i'm glad monkey lord is doing well. he's in a traditional school now right?
