Zorro - The Musical

I went to see "Zorro the Musical" at the Alliance theatre last night. Was not really sure what to expect. WOW! The plot, of course, was pretty much as expected. But the dancing and the music by the Gypsy Kings  was awesome. Also, the special effects really added to the overall performance. Take a look at this video!

Unfortunately last night was the last performance. Here is a review. To Quote "What the production has going for it, however, is flair. It’s highly theatrical, with fire, swordfighting, magic tricks and a collapsing stockade, as well as the sight of Zorro zipping into the skies and later flying to the rescue across the audience. It’s campy at times, goofy when it needs to be and occasionally funny, especially a confession scene where Ramon reveals a secret."

After the performance the actors did a few more songs and dances as an encore. I have not had such fun at a performance in a long time!

Imaginary Worlds - Plants larger than Life.

Had a fun evening yesterday at the Atlanta Botanical garden's special member event - Imaginary Worlds - Plants larger than Life.

A menagerie of magical creatures casts an enchanting spell over the Garden with 19 monumental living sculptures of fantasy and delight.

The sculptures – ranging up to 25 feet tall and 20 feet wide – include a gazing unicorn, a friendly ogre, a pair of gigantic cobras, a group of enchanting rabbits, and a couple of flighty butterflies. The largest piece, a 25-foot-tall representation of a goddess emerging from the earth, greets visitors in the Cascades Garden.
Enjoy the photos! Can't wait to get back and see these sculptures again.
