West Side Story in Manila

I am not a very "cultured" person but I do appreciate music and theater. Jerry, on the other hand, is not really into theater. That is why I had a bit of a hard time convincing him to watch Avenue Q with me when it ran last year. I hate saying "I told you so" but he did enjoy the show a LOT.

Talk about suckers...makes me wonder about ads in general. No wonder those companies pay big bucks to market their products!
