Friday night James and I saw the Rockettes at the Fox theater in St. Louis. It was a fascinating show with amazing costumes, fun songs, and pretty sets. The finale was a pleasant surprise. It was a living nativity complete with a camel, a donkey, and two sheep. There was the holy family, shepherds, and wise men. They sang "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" and "O Come let us Adore Him" and ended by reading "One Solitary Life." I so was not expecting that after an hour of dancing bears, Santa, and reindeer.
The theater itself was worth going to just to it. It is on the National Register of Historic Places, and I was awestruck when we walked up to the exterior, only to be even more impressed when when we got inside. It was very ornate.
Before the show, we ate dinner at a great little Italian restaurant called Vito's. James had pizza and I had shrimp scampi. We both had gelato for dessert. Yummy!
