 For the musical theatre buffs out there... 
I went to see A Little Night Music at the Arts Centre last night. I can now say I really GET Sondheim, and I see why so many people are in fervent love with his musicals.

I was hanging off every word. Oh, the lyrics are wonderful! 

I was sitting up in the dress circle without my glasses *grin* so I can't attest to whether Sigrid Thornton really looks as young as she did on the cover of the Melbourne magazine, but I really enjoyed her performance, and the chap who played her lover (I have no idea of the actor's name, unfortunately).

Definitely worth seeing, if you're a musical person. Not as glitzy and eyepopping as Wicked but clever and funny, and I'm still humming "Send in the Clowns" to myself this morning. :)
