My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

The People Garden

The People Garden. A family musical at the Zachary Scott Theater

I’m not much for posting “Today I Had a Cheese Sandwich”-type blog entries. I can’t see why anyone would be interested in the daily details of my life, when their own is surely much more interesting.

But, as I’ve alluded to in several posts, I’ve been spending a lot of time, recently, hanging around the Zachary Scott Theater, here in Austin. Here’s why. My daughter is playing the role of “Adam” in the Zach’s production of The People Garden. It’s a heartwarming little musical about the meaning of life, as revealed in a kindergarten class.

The show is in its final, hectic, week of rehearsals. It opens this Saturday, and runs through March 15. If you’re anywhere near Austin, check it out. I may be a trifle biased, but I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed.

Hey, congrats to the youngster…that’s great for her (and for Daddy!). I’ve never been to Zach Scott in all the years I’ve lived in Austin…maybe it’s time to pay a visit…

I can’t say that I care for a lot of the stuff that the Zach puts on, but Urinetown (which shares a stage with my daughter’s production) is definitely worth seeing.
