On Saturday, my 4-year-old-son and I will embark on a 10-day adventure to the Pacific Northwest. I've never been anywhere on the west coast outside of California and he's never been further than Boston (unless you count that quick trip to Texas for a wedding, which I don't because, although he was dressed to the nines, he doesn't remember even a minute of it.)

Among other things, while in Seattle, we will be spending two nights with a WFT family favorite, Mimi Katano. If you've been around WFT for a while, you know Mimi, and if you're new, well, you're gonna know her. When we return, look for an interview, photos, and an up-close tour of Youth Theatre Northwest, where Mimi is the Artistic Director.

I have to go pack my umbrella and rain boots, but in the meantime, here are four random things:

** Helen Mirren Don't Play (I bet this Corgi is sorry she didn't listen to the Dame.)

** Top-grossing Broadway shows for the week ending March 10. (Source: The Broadway League)

  1. Wicked
  2. The Book of Mormon
  3. The Lion King
  4. Lucky Guy
  5. Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella
  6. Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark
  7. Once
  8. The Phantom of the Opera
  9. Newsies
  10. Jersey Boys

** Alfred Molina is your kid's toughest critic.

** Study reveals that musical theatre has the power to change thinking. Do you think how you thought before you thought about what you think of musical theatre?
