I wore a silk suit and my husband wore a dress jacket and pants. People are dressing rather sloppy for the theater lately. It is a special place and I enjoy seeing the folks dressed up. It makes it seem more special..

Mitsua Market on Paularino, 1.5 blocks east of Bristol on the South side of the 405 has a great food court with all kinds of Japanese Food available. The market has a great "to-go" sushi fare and in the early evening most of the sushi, made that afternoon, is marked down for a quick sale. I especially like the noodle shop closest to the check out stands of the Market, and their spicy Pork Noodles are terrific. More expensive and the best in the food court is the noodle shop in the middle of the court, about 3 stalls to the right of the first noodle shop, to the right of it, is a stall that has a great tempura, teriyaki combo, that I've enjoyed for years. Mitsua Market has wonderful desserts with shops specializing in frozen mochi and pastries, as well as fare only found in Japan. In fact, going to Mitsua is to be transported to an authentic Japanese SuperMarket and Food Court.

I left during intermission. Her stories about her career were interesting and sometimes funny. However, her voice and dancing ability are definitely not up to par. I am amazed that she is as active as she is and have a great deal of respect for...continued

While a very professional production, we were disappointed in the artistic direction of the show. Dull backdrops, no costume changes for Ms. Rivera, and a feeling that she had done this show so many times it was delivered by rote.

Hard to believe this woman is in her 70's. She is captivating.
