Emmet Otter Jugband Christmas.

My mom and Dad took the family to the Goodspeed Opera House. I love the Goodspeed, mostly because when I was 10, my parents took me (no brothers!) to watch 1920 revival musicals. Eventually my brothers were invited too and we would all get dressed up and drive up the Connecticut river to the Opera House. We would find our seats, and enjoy the show, a Shirley Temple at intermission and maybe get to see the swinging bridge swing as a sailboat passed. This Christmas the Goodspeed put on a musical based on the book, Emmet Otter Jugband Christmas, and a Jim Henson 1970's TV special. It was fantastic, all sorts of puppets, great singers and Dad bought me my Shirley Temple.
