I had front row tickets for Peter Pan presented by the Minneapolis Children's Theatre for Thursday's 7pm show.
I took the bus to the Minneapolis Children's Theatre which is connected to the Minneapolis Art Institute. I planned to arrive early so I could either have a mocha and read or walk around the museum. I opted for the mocha since I fell asleep on the bus and woke with my head on the shoulder of the poor man that chose to sit with me. The man was nice enough not to acknowledge that I used him as a pillow and I pretended that nothing happened out of the ordinary. No sleeping here.
I ordered my mocha from The Agra Culture Coffee Shop and Café is in the Main Lobby of the museum. There is plenty of tables in front of the coffee shop with a great view of people watching or reading a great book. I was finishing up my book 'The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster' by Scott Wilbanks (review to follow later tonight). I was more than happy sipping my mocha, reading my book and people watching and could have went home in a blissful state but I also had Peter Pan tickets.
Row A. Seat 11 with a center stage view. Last time, I sat in the front row of the 2nd Balcony for The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and wished I would have brought binoculars. The front row was so much better! I was able to focus entirely on the production and not on the families that were siting on either side of me.
I clapped my hands to show Tinker Bell that I believed in fairies. I reached my hand out to try to catch the fairy dust and confetti. I laughed, I cried and I even screamed with fear at the ravenous crocodile. What a fabulous show! What a fabulous evening drinking mocha, reading a book, people watching and Peter Pan!
