Day 2423: The Greatest Theatrical Event Ever

While I would like to think that my first Fringe show — “Group ‘Therapy’ with Ann” — was the greatest theatrical event ever, a different show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is making a claim for that distinction, as you can see:

Even if my Fringe show was not the greatest theatrical event ever, it still went very, very well. Thirteen people showed up and seemed to get a lot out of it. I got permission from the participants for my son Aaron to tape the two original songs I performed. Here and here are two of the greatest musical events ever on YouTube:

Are these my greatest pictures ever?

Five of those photos were taken by the greatest family event ever … my son, Aaron!

I’m looking forward to the greatest comments ever.

The greatest thanks ever to all those who helped me create this post  — including the cast and creators of “The Greatest Theatrical Event (in this place at this time for this price) EVER!” — and the greatest thanks ever to the greatest readers ever: YOU!

    I’m glad you were there to provide support. Bravo!

  10. Your greatest photo ever is the one of you posing in front of your own poster, which is hanging in a window. I am sure that you ran the greatest group therapy session ever at The Fringe, too. I am delighted for you.

So glad that it went well, and that you, your son, and the audience enjoyed it. Hope you have a chance to do a bit of sightseeing before you have to leave Edinburgh.

  18. I love your songs, and as far as I’m concerned, you are the “greatest” for your willingness and I’d say courage to put yourself out there. I literally grin reading about it! You deserve a very hearty congratulations!

    Congratulations, I loved too, you are great all, Thank you, Love, nia

  20. I came across this while trying to just stay out of the way during cleanup after a major storm. I want to help, but since we have no major damage anything I say or do just seems to make people angry. So… I love both the songs, They got the message across and made me laugh — both needed right now.
