Just me talking about costume-y kind of stuff

Sunset Baby is an energized, vibrant and witty look at the point where the personal and political collide. Written by Dominique Morrisseau, one of the most exciting and distinctive undiscovered voices in America.
We were able to choose our seats online when we bought the tickets. Their website is really easy to navigate. This was my first time to see anything at Jubilee. It was really easy to find and they had Valet parking on the street which ended up being free because Jubilee validates. The front of house staff were very friendly. Rob bought four raffle tickets in the hopes of winning a Jubilee T-shirt. Unfortunately he was not victorious. They have a great lobby display commemorating their production history and a very interesting sculpture commemorating their founder, Rudy Eastman.
Local playwright Vicki Caroline Cheatwood brings us Manicures & Monuments , the hilarious and heartwarming tale of the residents of an Oklahoma nursing home and the young manicurist-in-training, Janann, who comes to volunteer. Janann soon clashes with former Army nurse Bailey, one of the elderly residents. Tempers flare as the two women collide in their struggle to understand each other, but eventually discover the true meaning of what it means to care for someone.
Watertower Theatre was easy to find, located right off the North Dallas Tollroad. We attended the Sunday matinee, which happened to be Pay What You Can day. I was told that the box office didn't presell tickets to PWYC shows, just to show up at 1:00 and get our tickets. Of course we got there way too early even after eating lunch, so we had to sit outside the theatre waiting for them to open the building at 12:30. Once we got inside, the air conditioning was not working so being inside was only slightly cooler than being outside.
