What a day! We wanted to shop, shop, shop in the Loop and after our spending spree we enjoyed a quick lunch in the food court at Macy’s. Our motor coach picked us up and whisked us over to the Lyric Opera for the 1:30 performance. Between the great seats, the great staging, and the state of the art sound system the results were impressive, not to mention the outstanding cast with included Steven Pasquale (Bridges of Madison Co, The Good Wife)as Billy Bigelow and Laura Osnes (Cinderella) as Julie Jordan. Steven brought the first act to an electrifying end with his powerful rendering of “Soliloquy in which Billy dreams of the future life of the child he has just learned Julie is expecting. There were many outstanding moments in this three hour show that we all absolutely loved! After the show we came out of the Lyric building and walked to our awaiting motor coach for our ride back to Rockford. Everyone was comfortable sitting back, relaxing and chatting about their day. Another great trip with Canterbury Tours!
We had a great time at the United Center on Sunday, March 8th. We departed the Highcrest Center parking lot at 3:00 pm and arrived in Chicago when the gates opened at 5:00 pm. The Hawks lost for the second time in the five games Patrick Kane has missed. The Rangers scored 30 some seconds into overtime to win the game 1 to 0. It was a really quick game! We were happy to get on to a warm bus and relax all the way back to Rockford after a grueling game.
