A Musical Play Without Words

Who wants to see the Edward Scissorhands ballet at the Ordway? I do, I do! And I get to go opening night, thanks to Julie Giles. But if you want to attend as well you have a couple of options. One, be my partner in crime for the evening (sadly Zophia has finals to contend with, and Iseult lives too far away). I’ll be taking photos like this fine fellow did in St. Louis. Or two, get in on this deal:

Get 25% off tickets for “Edward Scissorhands” at the Ordway Center.
Three shows only! Tuesday, April 10 through Thursday, April 12 at 8 PM. Visit the Ordway Center Box Office or phone 651-224-4222 with the promotional code TOPIARY to receive your discount. Click here for show details.

Based on the motion picture classic by Tim Burton. Devised/directed and choreographed by Matthew Bourne (”Swan Lake”, “Mary Poppins”)

I love all things Tim Burton. Also cool, the music is adapted from Danny Elfman’s original score. Speaking of…I plan to take the little man to another piece of work scored by Mr. Elfman, Meet the Robinsons. It’s not Pixar but it’s garnering decent reviews.

Bonus: Guilty pleasure time. I’m hooked on the Charlaine Harris series about a telepathic waitress who dates vampires. Just picked up the third installment, Club Dead, and I’m having trouble putting it down.
Plus: I’m officially on the Amy Winehouse bandwagon. But I also want more Grinderman (mmmm, Nick Cave). Thankfully the full length will be released on Tuesday.
And: I could go out and see STNNNG tonight at the Turf, but I have a helluvalot of work to do while the little man is gone. I don’t want to start things off in sleep-deprived zombie mode. Tomorrow morning I’m hoping to sleep in, just a little, and maybe kick back to watch the What About Bob episode before I roll up my sleeves and get started for the day.

    I’m all about Amy Winehouse. Just bought her newest cd off of iTunes last week. She’s awesome. “WHAT KIND OF FUCKERY IS THIS?” I love how that line came outta nowhere. Sometimes she reminds me of Etta James. I’m diggin’ on her for sure. And, some guy in the apartment building I lived in before I moved looked exactly like Edward Scissorhands, minus the hotness of Depp. His hair was/is equally fucked.

  3. Ericka, do you think you could get to St. Paul on Tuesday? You could be my date!

    Megan, that is tragic. One needs the hotness of Depp to pull off such fucked hair.

    I’m on that bandwagon too, and I agree, “What kind of fuckery is this? You made me miss the Slick Rick gig (oooh, Slick Rick!)” is perhaps the greatest song lyric of all time.

    And I’ll totally arm-wrestle you for Nick Cave. His version of Leonard Cohen’s “I’m Your Man” makes my toes curl up in the most deeeelicious way. :-P
