Date night: dinner and the theater

Sunset from Elliott's. 

I simply adore the movie The Music Man. When we found out it was coming to the 5th Avenue, we knew it was a must see. A musical of this stature is oftentimes hard to replicate, but this theater production from the cast to the singing was first rate. 

We started our evening out with a salmon dinner at Elliott's and then made our way a few blocks up to the theater. From the moment the curtain opened on the train scene I was smitten. The costumes and sets further added to the charm of this timeless story in River City, Iowa. My only regret, is I only wished we would have seen it sooner so we could recommend it to all our friends. Unfortunately, it leaves Seattle this weekend, but if you find yourself with some spare time it would make the perfect evening out.

You'll have to go to Mason City, Iowa, the inspiration for River City, to visit Meredith Wilson's house (he wrote The Music Man). We stayed there on an Iowa road trip last fall.

Thanks for the tip, I am certain we would enjoy that.
