Angel and I took our sister Judy out for her 44th birthday (44! Good Grief! I know I'm the baby, but still, my sister is 44!). She hadn't been to a dinner theater before, so we all went to see 'Funny Money' starring William Christopher, better known as Father Mulcahey from M*A*S*H. We had so much fun.
The plays there are always hysterical and this one was too. Basically, Henry (W.C.) accidentally switches briefcases with a mobster on the train home from work. He gets a briefcase full of $1,650,000.00 and Mr. Nasty gets his half eaten PB&J and personal address book. Henry decides this is the chance of a lifetime and wants to flee the country with the money, but before they can get to the airport, hilarity, danger and lots of lies ensue. The play was very fast paced and we laughed until our cheeks hurt.
It was kind of nice to do the 'sisters' thing for a change. We don't often get to go out just the three of us, but it was fun. If you have the chance to check out the play at New Theater Restaurant, I highly recommend it.
