So, I took my friend Chucky to see a new musical called "Nat King Cole and Me: A Musical Healing " last night. And it really was a musical healing. I have always loved Nat King Cole, In fact, the first Christmas present I ever remember asking for was a Nat King Cole record. And I wore that thing out. The musical could have been more well-developed. It ended up being more of a tribute than a story. But I really enjoyed the music. It lifted my spirits. I'd forgotten how much I love songs like "Pretend" and "Mona Lisa." Sometimes I feel like the Mona Lisa he describes in the song.
