Chicago

My husband and I went to see Chicago tonight at a local high school. It was excellent. The students were very talented in acting, song, and dance. I have watched the beginning of the movie, but the musical version is much better in my opinion. I must say, it is very dark, not a family show. It is a satire, mocking our judicial system and what Americans truly value (money and fame, rather than justice). I hope the students learned from it as they rehearsed over the past months and understand it as satire, not a promotion of the values portrayed.

This post seems rather disjointed to me. Perhaps this is due to a combination of being tired and an inability to express in a blog post what was captured so well on stage tonight.
