Martha & me in 1970
On What's Hot in Central Florida on WMFE 90.7 FM this week - you can click the link or listen live at 4:32 pm today- I've got three events I think mothers and others will enjoy, including the Ivanhoe Village Virginia Drive Live Street Party, where you can shop, eat and who doesn't need a drink when they've been hanging out with mom for awhile? Then there's Where Have All The Cracker's Gone? a history of the Florida cracker with author Janis Owens and samples of classic Florida recipes and free admission for moms at Harry P. Leu Gardens, one of my favorite spots in town, an oasis of peaceful beauty that has a wonderful way of erasing the every day.
BLOG ONLY BONUS! That's all good mom stuff.
But if you want to see some of the worst moms in the world check out the mother of all satires, Jeff Jones' Little Miss Parliament House, playing one show on Saturday night, May 12 at the Parliament House (go to WanziePresents for tickets). This send-up of child beauty pageant reality show "Toddlers and Tiaras" features lightyears-over-the-top drag queens from the Parliament House playing both the little girls and their moms, plus a rotating cast means you never see the same show twice. I reviewed Little Miss PH when it premiered in January and stick by my assessment: riotously funny. Someone in the theater will probably wet their pants and at this level of comedy it may very well be you.
Happy Muddah's Day!
