Yes, the show which brings you to this blog, SUPER VISION, had its world premiere this very evening, here in Minneapolis, MN at the Walker Art Center!
I feel it is safe to say that all our diligent efforts carried the evening along and we had a spectacular show, by my standards. I will also provide the caveat that the bar was perhaps at a medium height, as I was hoping to get through the night with no major disasters and my tepid expectation was bettered beyond my dreams by the TBA crew tonight. It came off not only hitchless, but dare I say we shimmered up there on that beautiful stage at the Walker.
New York City representing, yo!
After tea show, we were taken to a most lovely and delicious meal at the very nice restaurant in the Walker, 20.21 which is a Wolfgang Puck situation and lemme say, the food was beautiful and delicious. I had the angel hair pasta (thank you angels for donating your hair) with several kinds of tasty mushrooms and there was an assortment of appetizers which were delightful. The meat eaters did very nicely with lobster entrees and Hal, who was sitting next to me, had duck which arrived at the table sleeping its peaceful sleep of the afterlife in a little pool of the prettiest sauce. Hal enjoyed very much his interaction with the little duck's ride through the food chain and he said it went down like a dream. Thank you duck, as well.
And dessert was incredible!
Many toasts were made by Marianne and Kim, our loyal producer and Philip, the main curatorial man in performing arts at the Walker. It was a jolly good start to this juggernaut and may the ship sail surely onwards on the sea of creativity for many months to come.
After parties took place at local clubs, one a dance place and one a little more, um how can I put it? A little more racy. I begged off that part of the evening as I am the designated wimp in the party hardy department. But there were some good stories that emerged from the latter hours of the night and if you come to one of the shows, do ask us afterwards about our antics in Minneapolis on opening night.
We are all happy and relieved that it went so beautifully and breath a sigh of thankfulness to Thespis and all the other gods and goddesses and muses who came to our aid and guided us through the darkness of the evening. As Rizwan would say: "YAY!!"
