Sometimes I babysit my brother and sister-in-law’s kiddos when they use their season tickets to the Alley Theater. Imagine my surprise when Amber instead invited me to take Luke’s place for a recent showing of Pygmalion! The name is taken from the Greek myth where a sculptor named Pygmalion carves a woman so beautiful he falls in love with her; “My Fair Lady” is the musical version of this play.Amber drove us downtown in their silver Porsche. A Corvette pulled up next to us as we approached the theater, revving its engine and creeping forward. “We’re girls…we don’t care!” Amber said as the light turned green and we took off. At the end of the play I thought, “Wow! That was much shorter than most plays!” Nope, it’s was the standard 2.5 hours, but was so well performed that it felt much shorter. A fine summer evening in Houston! Thanks, Luke and Amber!
