"Rite of Passage Lucas"

Melbourne Town Hall
Proud Aunty Moment. Please indulge me a moment. As an Aunty to my beloved nephew Lucas I cannot be prouder of this young man who was just made School Officer in his final year of school. May the privileges and responsibilities of manhood be born with grace and steadfastness my beautiful young man.
Last night we went to see the Melbourne Production of Gypsy at the Arts Centre. It’s based on the story of Gypsy Rose Lee who was an American burlesque entertainer famous for her striptease act.
Carline O’Connor has to be one of our most astonishing performers, ever! I’m not a great fan of musical theatre (I usually prefer to nibble my own elbow) but Gypsy was the best knees up I’ve had in a long while. Here’s Ms O’Connor and one of the toons from the show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcNNAKblpaM&sns=em
