rufus does judy
best belated gay evening: rufus does judy at the royal opera house. shar owns the album by rufus and the original by judy on vinyl (thanks mel!), so i was keen for the opportunity to see it live. it was happenstance that i was in town as rufus was taking over the royal opera house. i could not miss the opportunity. t got tickets, but sadly missed out as she was under the weather. pal michelle was game to step in. from the rousing "san francisco" rendition to end the first act to sister martha wainwright coming to belt out "stormy weather", the gig sent me back to the good ol' golden era of mgm musicals. though it wasn't the complete concert, it sent me off dancin' into the wet and cold streets of londontown happily.
