Many live shows this week, so I'll bail out and catch up on sleep. I also blame having to explain Thanksgiving to a coworker earlier today. That included Detroit and Dallas football games, turkey pardon, and even acknowledging that turducken is a thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/22/17 6:24pm northguineahills:

huh, I was supposed to leave work before 4 (I still need to pack and drive to Orlando tonight) and yet, I'm still here at the office (and have been the only one here since 2pm yesterday).
  Wed. 11/22/17 6:24pm possibilitywaves:

What i did not know relative to the name, until this year, is the nature of the conceptual extravaganza and how it may relate to the shows!
  Wed. 11/22/17 6:25pm possibilitywaves:

this is just one opinion on the matter but much is a positive read!!

``The term was widely used to describe a type of 19th-century British drama made popular by James Planché. Planché defined it as "the whimsical treatment of a poetical subject."

The term is derived from the Italian word stravaganza, meaning extravagance.

An extravaganza is a literary or musical work (often musical theatre) characterized by freedom of style and structure and usually containing elements of burlesque, pantomime, music hall and parody. It sometimes also has elements of cabaret, circus, revue, variety, vaudeville and mime. ``
Avatar Wed. 11/22/17 6:27pm One Potato:

This extravaganza definitely needs more pantomime.

My phone just rang and I had to mute your show to see if it was actually my phone or if it was part of the show. That's the beauty of it.
