The Netheris about the dark side of Internet, in the future.
Honestly, this play made me feel very uncomfortable and disturbed. It was about a man hosting a brothel with underage girls but this was in a virtual world (I mean that's the way I understood it). So in a way it wasn't illegal, but it was a way for a person to explore that kind of fantasy. I didn't completely appreciated the message of the play. I believe if I were to see it again I would appreciate it more. Also I am the type of person who does not read anything about a show before watching it and in my opinion this is a show you must know what you are getting into.
A: My friend bought tickets and asked if I wanted to go. I kind of find these Off-Broadway shows to be pretty fantastic and more intimate than the larger ones – and more affordable too, if that is an issue. You also never know what you are going to get, which is a lot of fun!
Q: How often do you come see live theater in New York?
A: At least once a week. This is the second show that I’m seeing tonight and I saw one on Saturday. I do video and sound design, but I also conceive and direct my own stuff, which is usually not in a conventional theater. It is usually more site-specific.
Q: Did you read any reviews of this performance before deciding to come see the show tonight?
A (left): I read a little bit of a review that I think was in The Times. I try not to read to much about stuff before I see it.
A (right): Yeah, I maybe browse a little bit to get the gist of the plot, but I probably won’t finish the whole review. I don’t want to spoil anything. I like to come in with an open mind and I find sometimes reviews don’t match what my experience is anyway. It’s good to go in with no prejudice.
Brooklynite was quite the show. I lost count of how many songs were sung! I felt that each song dealt with a different part of Brooklyn and within two hours, I think I learned all Brooklyn had to offer with its awesome neighborhoods.
With this show, I was nervous that my friend would not enjoy, but she did. We agreed that (1) the R&B part was AMAZING (2) the guy was cute, but the guy on the cover of the pamphlet was really cute too.
