Today, Mom, Chrissie, Niece17 and I went to see Man of La Mancha at the Civic Center. It was wonderful. I loved it! The first bit was a little confusing, but after the characters were familiar, it was mesmerizing.
My favorite thing was how Aldonza’s view of herself changed with Don Quixote’s great belief of the good in her.
“The Impossible Dream” is a really good song (see lyrics here at Reel Classics, the classic movie site). I’ve been humming it all afternoon.
