Wow, what a great, detailed review!!! I too think Patti L is amazing--I saw her in 'Evita' all those years ago and..wow, what a voice!
I have to say that unfortunately I can relate to the accident you described and your description brought it all back. I had my own horrible experience when I was just 8 years old and at a Bee Gees concert that my mom agreed to take me to in 1976. I'm not sure exactly where it came from, but a big plank of wood fell from somewhere atop the Montreal Forum and smashed me and the lady next to me right in the face. We were both bleeding a lot, the lady's glasses broke, and I had a huge bruise on my face. My mom was spared the wood in her face, but I was freaking out and screaming and the lady was taken away by some medics. I was OK--just very sore and traumatized. It was my very first rock (well, disco actually!) concert and man, will I always remember that one!
Thanks for taking the time to share your experience at 'Gypsy'.
