well, i was thinking of friday, but now clearly i will have to come saturday (congratulations!) i live in the area, so don't need to worry about hotels - just getting my act together. my familiarity with 'les miz' is, unfortunately, nonexistant - i suppose i could acquire a cd. i should perhaps confess that my proportions are more consistant with, say, a wagnerian 'brunhilda' than a 'cosette'. still - perhaps i could sing from behind the scenery. oooo - and a favorite cheese? just _one_? i'm pretty easy to please, but in general, i will confess a prediliction for the stronger flavors - sharp cheddar, non-mild feta (in fact, just had some nice tasmanian goat feta for lunch) - and string cheese is always appreciated for its entertainment value.
