The unencumbered woman had a big night, a visit to the live opening of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
With camera in hand and a witty thirteen year old in tow, I figured we'd have no problem creating some glamorous shots. Unfortunately, everything we took looks like suburban mom's night out mixed with a tour of one of Louis Sullivan's crown jewels. How I love the Auditorium Theater. It is beautiful and perfectly composed, in every way that Sullivan imagined. My breath is taken away, each and every time I visit this amazing Chicago institution. How lucky we are.

But let's face it, kids, were not getting any younger, and well, we don't really look so glamorous. Earthy Mama, I suppose, with a little flair, is about all I can muster. Oh well, here's the rub. This is one of those evenings in which the inner matters so much more than the exterior--sort of funny while experiencing a musical that tells a story of kindness masked by obsession over looks, sexualized imagery and, well, really fabulous, hot looking people moving and grooving in fantabulous costumery and sexy sexy sexy wear.
