MANIA - The ABBA Tribute (Formerly ABBA MANIA)
November 1, 2022
The Flynn Center For The Performing Arts
So I woke up this morning still tingling over what a great time I had the night before at The Rocky Horror Picture Show and getting to meet Barry Bostwick in person after being a big fan for decades. It may sound silly to some, but if you had come of age back when Rocky Horror was a new phenomenon, it was a BIG deal, and well, as you can surmise by now, I am a lifelong fan.
Anyway, I spent the day today as I did yesterday, walking around the stunningly beautiful lake that borders Burlington, Vermont's quaint and beautiful town. I could have walked well into the night; it was so lovely. But my walk was cut short, for it was time to head back to the Flynn Center.
It was very cool to perform in the same theater where I had experienced so much fun and joy the night before. I was hoping and praying that tonight would be equally as fun. As it turned out, I was not disappointed. Rocky was sold out the night before, and we sold out also. Not only were we sold out, but the crowd was amazingly energetic and fun. What was initially a Halloween weekend I was sad about ended up being fantastic!
After the show, I was out for a walk, and I overheard two girls discussing the show on the corner. I stopped and joined their conversation. When they discovered who I was, they were excited. They went on and on about how much they enjoyed the show. After saying goodbye to them, I went for a brief walk before returning to the bus and my bunk for the evening—another Happy Halloween behind me.
