It’s hours before Oscar’s arrest and all he seems to be worried about is getting lunch. A man with priorities. It’s one of many qualities I found endearing about him, I was completely jealous of how chilled out he was knowing an arrest was hours away. I consider myself a pretty relaxed person, but if I was being arrested for loving the ‘wrong person’ I would have been flipping out.
Molly Vever’s enters the stage, walking around the pool, and I quickly learn what the synopsis meant by duologue. She would be playing both characters, and that took me for a spin. As she began to speak, I felt like I was listening to the ramblings of a crazy person. She was talking to herself, telling these random stories, and it felt like she had split personalities.
Daddy Long Legsis a musical about Jerusha Abbott, a spunky and highly intelligent 18 year old girl who grows up as the oldest orphan in the John Grier Home in the early 1900s. When a wealthy benefactor and trustee of the orphanage (who identifies himself only as Mr. John Smith) reads one of Jerusha's essays, he is so impressed by her wit that he decides to pay for her to attend college where it is his hope she will pursue writing. But there is one major condition to his generosity: Jerusha must write Mr. Smith...
I’m the type of person to see something out of the ordinary, health-wise, and go into a full-fledged panic attack. I worry all the time for myself and my parents. Especially my parents. My mother and father have a whole list of things wrong with them and as they age the list just gets longer and longer. There are moments where I fear their minds may be deteriorating like that main character of this play.
The first story was pretty strange. A story about a girl who wants the letter she wrote to God back. Yeah. You read that right. Apparently, that’s a thing in this story, and people have been writing letters to God for years. If I’m being honest, I kind of like the concept. I mean a way to say what you want to God without having anyone read it. This connection between only you and God. I don’t know. It sounded cool to me.
Everybody in town knew that Marty was an amazing songwriter but not everybody knew that Marty wanted to start singing himself. When he told his father that he wanted to be in front of the mic instead of behind, his father didn’t like the idea. He liked Marty being behind the scenes, he liked the fame and it almost looked like he didn’t really believe in his own child. I mean, what a dad?
Recently, one of my friends came back from Dominican Republic. She was telling me about her trip and how one of her family members went on their family trip with her boyfriend. Because of the boyfriend, this particular relative was the opposite of her usual self when with her family. This reminded me of the character Stella when Blanche came to visit Stella...
Watching Cheryl Stern, I felt like me and her were one. Like she understood me. Like I’ve known her my entire life. She was my lifelong best friend, who was as quirky and interesting as me, and I just forgot.
The main aspect of it seemed to be the will of God versus the will of law, with the Reverend John Hale representing the side of God and Deputy Governor Danforth siding with the law. The whole thing started out simply with Hale coming to investigate what seemed to be the presence of witchcraft in Salem. After a bunch of different mishaps and accusations (which just boils down to some children being terrible), almost all of the women in Salem are arrested and put on trial.
John is obsessed with race track betting, but he wins many times - at the expense of his wife's worries that one day he will lose their life savings. The apartment building directly across the street, from them, is old and run down. One particular apartment is at eye level to the adjacent high rise and the family's apartment, that place houses an obsessed man, Les.
In order to claim our tickets, we had to show identification. Without thinking, I flashed my college ID, but the lady behind the desk was interested in proper identification to prove I was over 21. When I asked her why this was, she mentioned that the show contained alcohol.
What kind of show was this?! I was not a big drinker, but I was intrigued.
Harper Regan is a bad ass. I think that’s pretty straightforward when when she stabs a guy’s neck. Backtrack to the start, Harper has a menial job that can’t come close to paying for a home in London, her boss is a weirdo, her husband is a registered sex offender, and now her dad is dying. Oh, the weirdo boss? Yeah, he won’t give Harper a day off to see her nearly dead father. Harper does what any rational and responsible adult does - runs away.
