Smooth as the silk (on her torn shoe), that duchess!

Did anyone watch the 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremonies last night? If you missed it you also missed one of our fav lovers of the eighteenth century singing on a pirate ship in Elizabethan-esque garb while ship-wrecked Georgians minuet-ted beneath her. It was a definitive diva performance as you would expect. For those who missed it, check it out below.

As mentioned, when you walk in, you're expected to give title suggestions, which will be drawn out of a hat (or basket) for the talented comedians to perform. This afternoon's selection was, Pride and Pigeons although unfortunately that meant we missed out on other 'clever' suggestions like Midgets and The Pony that Lost its Hat. The ridiculous plot mixed with the regency language, the players' occasional snafus with names that they came up with on the fly, and the unavoidable sexual innuendos had the audience's stays loosened from laughter. All in all, the Austenites I attended with all enjoyed themselves, and I think with 18 more shows left, I may just have to go back!
