I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

magically swept away

How very true that statement is. There is something that simply sweeps the audience away. 

In terms of theater, then, living in Chicago has its perks, as there are so many venues which boast such talented directors and performers.

Just this year alone, I've seen "Q Brothers Christmas Carol," "Newsies," "Sondheim on Sondheim," two Catholic grade school productions, and now "Sense and Sensibility."

While each of those shows was magnificent in its own right, this latest one (program pictured above) definitely became one of my all-time favorites. (With a discount through the theater, my sister and I only paid $20 each for tickets!) The actors/actresses were witty and charming; the comedic timing was on point; and the music had both striking melodies and command of the English language. (To cap it off, it's a Jane Austen novel - what's not to love?)

As they say in theater, "there's no business like show business"...
