The last of the snow finally melted, & it distinctly felt like spring today! 75 degrees & no coats to be seen! I'm SO ready to wear dresses & sandals again! \o/

Also I'm super excited to be going to back to Chicago in a few weeks for Lyric Opera's production of Carousel. I love that they do a musical every year now- it's basically a Broadway production without having to go to New York! Laura Osnes & Steven Pasquale are starring, so wow! Also Catherine Zuber is doing the costumes & she's my fave costume designer on Broadway currently, so very excited to see what she'll come up with. Having seen their production of Oklahoma! two years ago, I know the Lyric orchestra is fantastic, and the whole production is going to be fabulous. (Also it's so glamorous there & I get to dress up, which is extra fun!) It's like musical theatre geek heaven! I'm so excited!

My Classic Who watch continues: I listened to 'The Celestial Toymaker', which was okay, but not very exciting. I think it was really intended to make it's impact through the visuals, and since most of it's missing, you lose a lot of the interest on audio. More thoughts behind the cut )

Also watched 'Paradise Towers', which was... weird. 80s Who is just so much weirder than other eras, for some reason. But it was alright, certainly, & there were a lot of female characters, which is always nice to see on TV, & I just really like Mel no matter what anyone else says! But I thought the end was a little odd. Thoughts on why here )

Also, just yesterday I was at the fabric store & saw the exact blue-polka fabric that Mel's outfit in 'Paradise Towers' was made of... and now part of me is actually contemplating cosplaying that heinous 80s monstrosity. I'm pretty sure I'd be the only Mel at the con... but I'm already planning Vicki, Ian, Romana I, possibly 2 Claras and possibly a Barbara, I don't need more!! Shut up, brain!! Is there a support group for compulsive companion cosplayers? Because I think I need to join it...
