Culture Sunday

This may well become a new Holiday tradition for the DH & me.  We joined our friends T, P & S for a Sunday performance of ‘A Christmas Carol’ at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee. 

This theater was built in 1895 (119 years old) and is the 4th oldest continuously operating theater in the U.S., as well as a National Historic Landmark.

This is from The Pabst Theater website:
“With a full proscenium stage that includes a hydraulic orchestra pit, the theater is suitable for virtually all performing arts including theater, opera, dance, and music. The auditorium is drum shaped with two balconies, and stunningly decorated in reds and maroons with gold and silver accents. A magnificent crystal chandelier that weighs over two tons hangs over the auditorium. Measuring twelve feet in width by sixteen feet high, it is lowered to seat level once a year so that its 33,000 running inches of Austrian crystal can be cleaned.”

The performance we attended was AMAZING! Simply AMAZING!!

Afterward, it was off to a lovely dinner.  And a long drive home...
