She and I went to the Muny, which is an outdoor theater with live performances at dark. The St. Louis Municipal Opera is located in Forest Park where the 1904 World's Fair was held. There are 1,486 free seats, and on any given night during the summer, the 11,000 paid seat theater is filled to capacity.The Muny is the largest outdoor musical theatre in North America. It has produced and presented seven exciting Broadway-style musicals every summer since 1914. Many of the shows are ‘whole family friendly’ so everyone can enjoy great theatre under the stars! Generations of St. Louisans have been to the Muny. We may have sat in the very seats where my mom, Nicole's great grandma sat as a girl, who knows?
Nicole was thrilled to be watching Into the Woods. When Little Red stomped on the bad guy's foot, and said, "Take that!" Nicole cackled out loud, which caused everyone around us to turn around and laugh, too.
She didn't make it until intermission. We'd been swimming and having fun all day, and she was ready to conk out by 9:30, so we headed home. I'm telling you, one of these days she just might be on stage; she is a character.
