The Show Is Everywhere


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- the LA Opera is the sexiest date in LA. Scott and I joined Rivers and Kyoko and went to see Die Walkure this weekend. It rocked our world.

Gift idea: if you or anyone you know has connections at the opera costume shop (yes, Sharon, that means you) I want one of those Valkyrie costumes oh-so-badly. I’m certain that no one in the world could pull it off as daywear as well as I could:


The LA Opera isn’t just the sexiest date in LA, it’s also the best people watching in LA. During the first intermission, these enthusiastic folks were doing performance art around the fountain. Who needs a stage?


Our votes for best dressed at the opera went to:

1. The woman in the wide-brimmed hat and shiny silver catsuit and her escort in the white tux.

2. The two blondes in front row wearing Viking helmets.

3. The tall guy in the white linen suit and his charmingly trampy tattooed date in a sundress (no, it wasn’t us).

  1. Lula saw this picture of you two and said, “Mama! Dada!” You don’t look anything like us, but she must mean it as high praise…it is a stunning picture.

  2. Hi Jillan,
    I read your Modern Love piece and was interested to learn more about you. I found your blog and see that you adopted a little boy from Ethiopia. My husband and I adopted our son from Ethiopia 6 years ago when he was 5 yrs old. We have two biological kids as well. Adopting our son put me on a path that I never could have imagined. I’m now on the board of a charity that helps orphaned and vulnerable kids around the world. We have a clinic and school in Addis Ababa. I knew there was something about you that I could relate to. That and recovery. Great piece in the NY Times. My best to you and your beautiful family.
