Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the last show of the season last night because it was rained out. The weatherman was predicting rain but we hoped he was wrong because, you know, he usually is. LOL. It was sunny when we left the house but there were clouds to the west and by the time we got to the Muny, it was mostly cloudy and pretty breezy.
We ate dinner at the Culver Pavillion. They had chilled berry soup, salad, assorted cheese (I love cheese), pasta salad, fruit, hummus, seafood dip, breads and muffins, grilled veggies, chicken and waffles, giant Italian meatballs and pasta and boneless ribs with pecan pie for dessert. The food was great and we were absolutely stuffed. We enjoyed all three meals that we ate there this year.
After dinner, we waited for about 15 minutes for the gates to open, watching the sky the whole time. It didn't look too bad but we were actually on the east side of the Muny so once we entered and were able to see the western sky, we knew that there was no question that it was going to rain.
About 5 minutes after the above picture was taken, it poured.
Keep in mind, this was about 7:45 pm and it looked like it was nighttime. At about 8:30 pm, the stagehands started squeegeeing the stage. It was still raining so it was sort of like trying to bale water out of boat with a hole in the bottom. At 8:40 pm, we decided to head home because the weather radar showed continuing showers. Sure enough, they cancelled the performance at about 9:00 pm.
I'm so glad The Muny posted videos of each show this year because I was able to see what we missed...
This was perhaps the best season ever! I loved every show and I'm so looking forward to next year.
