- Danbury, CT
- I'm a full-time substitute teacher and coordinator of CMT's at a large middle school. Married with two grown sons (both redheads)! I'm not afraid of anything! One son just graduated from Central Connecticut State University with a degree in Journalism - he minored in Cinema Studies. The other just began his freshman year at The University of Hartford where he is a student of the Hartford Art School. We are owned by a smelly, old cat, a frenzied dachshund named Otis and a chinchilla!

We have season tickets to the Bushnell Theater in Hartford, CT. It's an indulgence but we don't travel at this point or have many other 'bells and whistles' going on in our life so it's a welcome respite every other month. Today we went to see 'Hair' which I'm quite sure I would not have bought tickets for on my own but that is the beauty of purchasing a season package! We have had the opportunity to see many shows that we normally would not have opted to see if given the choice. So today we found ourselves in Hartford seeing a Broadway show that came with a warning about nudity and subject matter. Really.
The show is set in 1967 during a time of political and social unrest in the country that largely surrounded the Vietnam war. What my husband and I both saw was a similarity to what our sons are experiencing now in the world they are growing up in as young adults. The show was joyful, exuberant and sobering...as life is. We left feeling intensely happy and at the same time saddened that history will always repeat itself. We wish we had brought our sons. I left with a flower. Enjoy the video!
