Dear President Obama,
While you're in Austin today, you should swing by First Bapitst Church. We have a Black Box Theater on the 4th floor. So, if you want to come see our dress rehearsal for The Fantasticks tonight, we would be delighted to have you. Chip and Amy Brees might be there too. That's Drew Brees' parents. Remember the Super Bowl? Maybe you guys could talk about New Orleans and how much FEMA sucks. Stephen & Deborah Reeves and her parents will be there tonight too. Stephen works for the Christian Life Commission so y'all could talk about how screwed up it is that Texas took James Madison out of our History Books for public schools. Can't you overrule us or something? Sometimes we make terrible decisions.
Anyway, the show is great and since according to the local paper, you won't be here through Thursday, which is opening night, I thought maybe you might want to catch the 50th Anniversary of this magical musical written by two UT grads tonight. Dress rehearsal starts at 7:30.
Rev. Ann Catherine Pittman (but you can call me Louisa)
