Friday Night Theater

Contribution by Diane James

Every Friday night, I take my wife out for a night at the Theater in Detroit. Since we started this little tradition of ours, I can't say that I've had a bad Friday night. The evening usually begins with dinner at our place. Once we finish up washing the dishes, we get dressed and ready. It usually takes her awhile longer than I to get ready, so I use that time to set the home security alarm(HOME SECURITY prices) .

Depending on what's showing that night, we usually head out to either the Detroit Opera House, Fisher Theater, Fox Theater or Gem Theater. Once we get to the theater, we enjoy whatever live show happens to be playing that night. My wife loves operas while I usually enjoy off-Broadway musical comedies. We usually take turns each week deciding where to go, though we are both open to compromise if a particular show is only being held on a certain night or time frame. My favorite show thus far has to be Forever Plaid which is a show that falls in my type of genre and is an affectionate revue of the close harmony male vocal groups that reached the height of their popularity during the 1950s. I am definitely looking forward to the next time they perform that show again. Plus, I like to see things a second time because you always catch innuendos that you missed the first time aroun
