58 Days

Dear Josh-

This morning’s schedule was like being behind the wheel of a really jacked up track Ferrari and navigating the turns….and everything is in alignment despite the fact that you are just zooming from one thing to another. It all started because I failed to set my alarm correctly last night…and I woke up to my Google Alert for my AM workout. Then it was lab work, then it was a pet sit…and bringing it all back into alignment with the normal schedule of the day…yup hand,eye, body coordination as you punch the clutch down and shift the gears, angle just so and go….I love the idea of trying this…I am addicted to Adrenaline and the rush of new things, can’t deny it.

Which is part of the many threads that make up this whole journey to the mountain. The mountain, of course is you and the tour and the book. I love cramming learning in, to see how many new things I can learn…and at the same time balance it with the self-care(love) I need to practice on myself daily….

Onward…and talk about some synchronicity…the stop number and the date number are the same….and still running in my home state of Texas.

Stop #25

Trivia Facts/History about Music Hall:

Information supplied by Live at Music Hall website

Nestled among the greatest concentration of genuine exposition art deco architecture in the world, The Music Hall in Fair Park made its grand theatrical debut on October 10, 1925 with the musical premier of Sigmund Romberg’s “The Student Prince.” However the real star of the show was the grand hall itself which was a dedication to “the good, the rue and the beautiful.”

Designed in Spanish Baroque style with Moorish architectural influences, the Music Hall’s design theme is embodied in the six soaring stair towers that are capped with cast drum and dome and five great arcade porches overlooking the panoramic view of Far Park. In 1954 the Music Hall underwent its first major renovation by installing much-needed air conditioning.

In 1972 the Hall was remodeled again by expanding the lobby areas to create a grand foyer for the ticket office and space for the Crystal Terrace Restaurant (now knows as M Dining at the Music Hall). This project also enlarged the backstage area, providing a spacious annex and ample dressing rooms. The final touches included acoustical improvement and the installation of more comfortable seats creating a seating capacity of 3420. In 1999 refurbishment of all 3420 seats was complete. The theatre was carpeted, the interior repainted and a permanent gift store, infrared headset station and guest relations center were created. Other improvements and amenities including booster seats were added. The accommodating and spacious nature of the Music Hall make it a nationally recognized venue for Broadway musical touring companies, grand opera, ballet and other dance production. Concerts including live global television broadcasts, national pageants and a myriad of other large and small scale public and private functions. In the past, Music Hall at Fair Park has been the home of the Dallas Opera, The Dallas Symphony and the Fort Worth Dallas Ballet.

More than just a cultural center, the Music Hall provides a refined venue for corporate meetings, black tie affairs, luncheons and banquets. Combining the elegance of fine dining with the beautiful views of Fair Park, M Dining at the Music Hall Restaurant offers a gourmet buffet prior to summer musical, opera and ballet seasonal performances.

With multiple loading docks at stage level, an orchestra pit which can house a full orchestra, amole backstage dressing rooms and property storage area, the Music Hall is unique in its ability to accommodate full scale opera and musical touring productions.

Broadway favorites like:

  • Les Miserables
  • Miss Saigon
  • Southwest Premiers of “The Phantom of the Opera”

And Grand Opera productions such as

  • Aida
  • Madame Butterfly and
  • The Barber of Seville

Are just some of the presentations that have appeared on the Music Hall Stage. The Music Hall at Fair Park is under the management of DSM Management Group, an affiliate of the Dallas Summer Musicals which take place yearly at Music Hall.
