escape, sail

the play's the thingie

Last night we went and saw Edward II by Christopher Marlowe put on by the Shakespeare Theater at their new venue, the Sidney Harmon Hall (SHH). The play was quite good. The cast did an excellent job, the staging was cool, I rather liked the monochromatic nature of the costuming to determine groups, nifty lighting to set the mood, and the sound was a bit too loud in the beginning, but leveled out nicely. The stage at the new theater is nicely set-up for the cast and crew for putting on productions. A nice central pit allows for changing of some minimal sets by raising them instead of sliding stuff on stage and off. On the whole we had a really good time and got to see Mel, Steve, Kymber and Dave (seems to be doing well post-surgery) for a lovely evening of culture out of the house. If the production weren't ending on Sunday, I'd highly recommend it to everyone.

This amuses me greatly. For the record, my true feeling for davew1775is ... is... that I hope he heals quickly and is back in action soon. (Sorry, no unrequited love there, just friendly admiration.)  I like the concept of drinking four glasses of music every day. Will have to try that.
