NYC bound!  And I can’t wait.

Last week, I got a very unexpected offer from my sister and brother-in-law.  It included a luxurious coach seat on Continental Airlines to and from New York City, a limo ride in a black Hyundai mini-van, a 5-star meal at either McDonald’s or Sbarro’s (my choosing) and the best seats in the house to see the off-Broadway production of Good ‘Ol Girls.  They said it was an offer one could not refuse, and they promised that they really had splurged on the most expensive seats in the theater!

Good ‘Ol Girls is the musical based on the writings of two of the South’s great literary voices, JILL McCORKLE (Going Away Shoes) and, yes, my seventh-grade English teacher, LEE SMITH (The Last Girls).  The songs were written by two of Nashville’s biggest hit-makers, Marshall Chapman and Matraca Berg.

Needless to say, I’m going.

Both Lee and Jill write so visually, so beautifully,but to see their words come alive on stage, well, I cannot wait.  I really feel like a little girl waiting for Christmas morning.  And as soon as the curtain closes, I will be sure to share the experience with you.
