ABOUT THE SHOW
Book by Terrence McNally; Music & Lyrics by David Yazbek
Seeing how much their wives enjoy watching male strippers during their “Girls’ Night Out,” unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, New York come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. In the process, they find renewed self-esteem, the importance of friendship, and the ability to have fun. There is great heart to The Full Monty, and the themes expressed about taking charge of one’s life and following one’s dreams are great lessons for everyone.
Paul came for Opening Night and for the Sunday Matinee and just LOVED the show! He spent all day Saturday working on the score for The Producers. That is the next show coming to the Aurora and Paul is working very closely with the Director to ensure another fantastic Aurora Arts Production! He also attended the auditions for the show and got to give input on all the talented people who showed up for roles. One of those people was our daughter, trying out for her first musical! Paul said she did very well so here is hoping she scores a part and follows her momma onto the stage!
On the medical front we are all ready for chemo at CTRC in San Antonio to start on June 2nd. We met with the Radiation Oncologist last week to go over Paul’s radiation treatment regiment. Dr. Stewart and the staff at Spohn Cancer Center were wonderful. They went over what to expect, what the treatment will be like and the effects and how to deal with that. We will start Radiation at the end of June. We will go in for a “test run’ the week before. That’s when they will mark and position the targets for his body (he will receive tattoos!) and they make a mold around his body so he will be able to stay in the correct position while receiving the treatment. It’s very precise and they take a lot of care to ensure the radiation is going right where it needs to go.
People that receive radiation in the abdomen usually experience effects like nausea, vomiting, etc. which we were prepared for anyway. The biggest challenge for Paul will be fatigue. They gave us lots of literature and we had to watch a video, etc…..so when he starts we will be there 5 days a week. Usually we will be there only about 30 minutes. Once a week we meet with Dr. Stewart so that might take an hour….but that’s all. And it’s a 10-15 minute ride from the house…..easy peasy…..
So family and friends, that pretty much brings you up to date!
