On the Importance of Tradition

| 2 Comments
My wife and I have a recent tradition, and it's this: every year, on our dating anniversary in December, we go see the biggest, most overblown, can't-possibly-be-good Broadway musical we could find.

  • In 2007 it was the vomit-inducing Little Mermaid.
  • In 2008 it was that highbrow piece of theater, Shrek.
  • 2009 was Little Night Music.  Okay, fine, Sondheim usually isn't overblown in the Mermaid/Shrek way.  But Phantom II didn't open in time like they had at one point said it would, and the whole Catherine Zeta Jones thing seemed overblown enough in of itself.  Shame I was proven wrong when she won the tony, and everybody in the entire world agreed that she was the best actress ever forever ever.
Well, I happened on a piece of news today that made me sling for joy:


THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST DATING ANNIVERSARY EVER.
