Mama Mia!’s Farewell Tour Goes Out With a Bang

MM7Well, Dancing Queens, alas, the time has come… the colossal Broadway hit, Mama Mia!, is saying goodbye with a farewell tour.  I had the pleasure of attending opening night for the Atlanta leg of the tour and this cast is not leaving us unsatisfied!

This is my second time seeing Mama Mia! on stage at The Fabulous Fox Theatre and it was just as much fun as the first time.  One, I am a Broadway fanatic.  Two, I love ABBA.  Three, I am a sucker for a good story.  This show is a triple threat.  It is also a testimony to the incredible songwriting of ABBA. I grew up with their music so I know every song by heart.  But I never knew what powerful love stories they told… until they were used to tell a story.

MM9Do you need to be a fan of ABBA to enjoy this show?  Absolutely not! You will laugh and cry and laugh some more. Eventually, you will be dancing with the rest of us… especially at the end. The encore is everything.  If you ARE a fan of ABBA, you will get all of your life!

Mama Mia! will be in Atlanta at The Fox Theatre THIS WEEK ONLY!  (June 13-18)  Click here for other cities on the farewell tour.

100 Days of Creative Self-Care in Effect!

With Venus firmly planted in retrograde and Mercury hot on her heels, this is the perfect time to (re)start a creative habit. I’ve allowed external forces to lure me off of my chosen path and hold my creativity hostage for far too long. Fellow creative soul, Denise Jacobs, has inspired me to begin the “100 Days of Creative Self-Care” project.

What is it?
Exactly what the name implies.

When does it start?
Whenever I want to begin… and that’s today.

What do I have to do?
Whatever I choose that will reconnect me to my creative spirit, nurture my mental and physical health, and make me write fearlessly.

It is, in essence, a challenge. But I don’t want to call it that. I’ve come to learn that the word “challenge” is not a motivator for me. I’m not highly competitive so it has the opposite effect. Instead, I will call it a practice. That’s what it is, after all.

A creative practice… starting with 100 days… continuing for life.  See my updates on Instagram and My Single Serving Life.
