OHMIGOD!!!! How jealous am I??? I would LOVE to see Wonder Woman in concert. But only as long as she does that twirl-thing to change her outfits. At least once.

HUGS...

Polt - She was BRILLIANT!!!! Absolutely BRILLIANT!!! I'll be writing a post about it later today if I get the time, but if she's coming ANYWHERE near you, GO SEE HER!!! The show is genius and I talked to the producer afterwards who told me that cd will be coming out soon.

I had the record album that the second photo was taken from...I got it for Christmas when I was 10. Contained pretty decent I(if dated) covers of "She's Always A Woman" and "Just One Look"...

Stephen Rader said...

Aaron - Well, this woman is in her PRIME now!! Go see this show if you see nothing else this week, this season, this year!!! This is THE show to see!

DAMNIT! bitch better hit the road. i need to see that

Stephen Rader said...

joe*to*hell - I talked to the producer of the show and I know that the cd of the show is being recorded, so if she doesn't hit the road, at least you'll be able to hear her. But she is friggin' BRILLIANT, so if she's anywhere near you, GO!!!

Valyna said...

Hmmm... I never even knew she was a singer.

Then again, I did run around the house a lot when I was little singing in my Wonder Woman Underoos... maybe that was a sign of things to come.

Stephen Rader said...

Valyna - I LOVE the mental image of you in your Wonder Woman underoos jumping singing!!! I wish we had some video of that!!!!

And Lynda Carter was (and is) amazing!!!

Kristie said...

I am so jealous, must have been an awesome show!!!

Stephen Rader said...

Kristie - It was brilliant!!! She's going to Feinstein's in New York next. Any chance you're in New York soon?

Kristie said...

Unfortunately my next trip is home for my "gasp" 20 year reunion, then in October I will be in Philly for a week. Hopefully the fabulous Mrs. Carter will decide to make a stop down south.

Stephen Rader said...

Kristie - When is your 20th reunion? You have to go - - you'll be, hands down, the hottest one there!

Kristie said...

Randy and I will be attending this Saturday the 22nd. Believe it or not it is at the sunsphere of all places.
He will be wearing his camo colored kilt he bought at dragoncon so I am trying to find a fierce green dress to play it up for fun.

Stephen Rader said...

Kristie - Your reunion will be in the Sunsphere?!?!? How weird and brilliant is that?!?!?! Twenty-five years after the big ol' fair, no less.

Be sure to tell Randy that traditionally, the only things worn under a kilt are boots. At least, in the gay world.
