Playwright vs Author

Welcome to the Garden everyone. I just want to say... I'm so ready for spring. However, winter is still here so fill your plates with goodies and grab a warm beverage and lets discuss...

I went to see a Broadway (traveling to our town) play today at our new Eccles Theater in Salt Lake City. As I watched I realized it was like a story coming alive. When I read a book the story folds out in my mind. But a play is a visual. It's still the same, you have your character building, your plot/story development, your dark moment, and then how everything wraps up.

Do you write? And would you ever decide to write a play or would you rather stick to books. And if you're a reader, do you find enjoyment in plays also?

Now a review on the play I attended today. Kinky Boots
It had such a wonderful cast and the music was awesome. However, the message turned out to be the highlight for me. "Accept yourself for who you are and others will too." If you have a change to attend this play, be sure and do so, you will not be sorry.

Based on true events, KINKY BOOTS tells the heartwarming and humorous story of two people with nothing in common — or so they think! Charlie is a factory owner struggling to save his family business. Lola is a fabulous entertainer with a wildly exciting idea. With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learns to embrace their differences and creates a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen! But in the end, their most sensational achievement is their friendship.

There's never been a better time to see KINKY BOOTS. It's a celebration of the best in all of us — the challenges that shape our journey, the joys that keep us going and the shoes that lift us up along the way!
