Prairie Home Comes to Hollywood

Last night we went to the Hollywood Bowl to see the performance of Prairie Home Companion, the NPR radio show. The show was recorded last night and will be broadcast today.

The Hollywood Bowl is a great place to be on a summer night. The stage is like a snow globe and you can see the Hollywood sign in the background. The night was cool and we could actually see some stars in the sky. Speaking of stars, the show's guests last night were Meryl Streep, Virginia Madsen, John C. Reilly and Shelby Lynne. It was also neat to see LA's NPR set-- people of all ages who, refreshingly, didn't look like they cared about their clothes, their shoes or their hair. Not to say they didn't look good; they just looked normal.

When I was in college I had a boyfriend who liked PHC.

I liked the movie "Monty Python at the Hollywood Bowl" though!

I almost went when they taped last year. (we lived a five minute walk away)

tickets were only a buck, but Oda still wouldn't go.

Junebee: Can you believe I have never seen any Monty Python stuff?

Ivanomartin: A buck and she still wouldn't go? She must really hate PHC. I'm not a huge fan myself, but I was curious to see the live performance.
