This was a really fun city. It was good to be in one place for a couple of days and fortunate that it was in such a lovely city. They really take care of this place! Some of the other guys that came here on tour a couple of years before said that it had undergone quite the transformation. Back then there were large areas of open ground under development and sidewalks under construction. Now all that work was completed and there were beautiful gardens, open lawns and well kept and well designed walkways.
The shows there were a lot of fun, some of the best crowds we have had in a while. We also made friends with Nick and Lori who own Junction Coffee, a mobile coffee shop in a British double decker bus!! They also have a location in the theatre and completely hooked us up by giving all the cast and crew free coffee!!!
I took a few minutes to visit the memorial to the Oklahoma City bombing which stands on the sight of the tragedy. It is one of the most moving and beautifully crafted memorials I have ever seen. The empty chairs sitting facing the reflecting pool are a poignant reminder of what happened.
