Took the kids tonight to see Lakeland College's production of Chicago. Really fun, they did a great job. I love Lakeland events. However, both kids had sleepovers last night and were very tired, so we snuck out about 2/3 of the way through the show.

Yes, Chicago has some adult(ery) themes that might be a bit much for kids, but it is art. I try to shield them, to an extent, from vapid nastiness, but they also need to be exposed to the classics, and I'd rather be with them so I can explain things and provide moral context. And heck, you see worse things on promos for TV shows or movie trailers on TV. You can't avoid it all, you have to deal with it.

Sammy thought the "he ran into my knife--10 times" line was pretty funny. He was raised on Tom and Jerry. Much more violent than Chicago.

Gaby dressed up for the show, looking fabulous as usual.

Wasn't the show fantastic!? Glad you got to see it & took your kids and they enjoyed it. Your daughter is lovely - mine was in the show in one of the more extreme bits (go-to-hell kitty at the end of act one.) Our little girls grow up fast, don't they? I'll send you the link on F.B. where the pictures from the show are if you want to see them or link to them. Take good care!
