Full moon. A cooler full of cold drinks. Rice Krispies treats. Quilts spread on the hillside with a perfect view of the stage. Kick off your shoes and get comfy. It's show time. This was the magical setting for Music Man, this years Zilker Park Musical production. What a perfect way to end our trip.
The actors pass the hat at intermission. You give what you can. With pleasure. In recent years we've seen Annie Get Your Gun, the Will Rogers Follies and Beauty and the Beast. Tuck this little treat in the back of your mind for next summer.
My nieces know him as Eric, pianist for their children's choir. But tonight, he's Harold Hill, star of the show.
