When I Was A Star

(click to enlarge)
I was reminded by an old friend today that there was once a time when I was on the big stage and performed without an ounce of stage fright. I appreciate him reminding me of those times when I was young and beautiful.
A rollicking musical based on the poem by Robert Service. Set in a Yukon saloon during the 1890s gold rush, it tells the story of prospector Dan McGrew, his sweetheart Lou and a mysterious stranger.

“A good magician
Doesn’t spoil his best illusions
The wildest dreamer
Never tells you all his dreams
One simple clue
May lead to several conclusions
Nothing’s ever really what it seems.”

That's very cool! I can see it being popular in both Red Deer and Edmonton, with its Klondike goldrush theme.
