Longtime Eyes on the Sky viewers are well aware of the occasional antics and skits that get included in the weekly - and sometimes, educational - videos. That doesn't come from nowhere. Though my love of astronomy is both genuine and sincere, my passion for theater is just as great. So I often marry the two with "Astronomy Theater." However, I also am involved in a local community theater group on occasion. One of my "dream shows" for the last 25 years has been to be in the musical "Les Miserables." This last summer, I was cast in that local group's production of the show.

Now, I like my hair short, but most people in early 1800's France didn't have nicely trimmed buzzcuts. So I had to grow my hair out, which is why many have noticed the slow transformation of my hair from short to long-ish (well, for me) over the last 6 months. But on Monday of last week? It ALL reverted back to normal. The show ended, was a rousing success, and I had a fantastic time in it. Time to move on though.

Here's a few photos from the show, for your viewing pleasure. This is one of me as the pimp in the "Lovely Ladies" song/scene, though it should be noted I am wearing a black wig for this character:

The Nightlight

This blog includes what to see in the night and daytime skies, thoughts on telescopes, binoculars, and other astronomy observing accessories and equipment, plus my own occasional notes on objects I've seen and observed. Oh, and the random theater or other "my take on life" post. In other words, there is always something interesting. Check it out.
