Marisol @ Brooklyn College Presents : Bring a Weasel and a Pint of Your Own Blood PROGRAM B. - Big mistake!
What's it about?
Two 40 minute shows that are inspired by paintings by the artist Martin Ramirez.
Well the beginning of this experience was actually really exciting. I had a set day plan starting with this AMAZING ramen at this restaurant called Tonchin. If you get the chance, try it out. I went with my friends and then I headed over to the show with one of them named Elizabeth. Nothing better than dinner and a show!
This show though was really exciting because I went to support my friend. We've been friends since we were nine. Her name is Sophia. She was stage managing all of the shows and I am like one of her biggest fans. Because of this, my sister and her boyfriend also joined us that night to support and watch the show.
The first show was about a soup kitchen and it's crew and making sandwiches. I found this one very interesting. It shared a lot about the characters and it kept me interested.
The second show however... I really blame myself for not being a good theater goer and not reading the writer's explanation. I sometimes like to be surprised so I don't read back story. BIG MISTAKE. I was SOO confused! The actors only said four words in various variations for a while and I was so lost. I really just kept thinking that these actors are AMAZING because I would assume that remembering all those variations of the same four words and saying them correctly is NOT easy. I kinda ended up trying to make sense of it all. AFTER the show, I opened the program and it made SO much sense! The explanation said its inspiration and explained the painting. *Note to self: read backstory*
The two shows were so different but it was interesting to see something come to life that was inspired by a painting. It isn't everyday you see such new takes on things and I enjoyed seeing that. It was a good day.
