... this story follows a woman in her late twenties (whose name I’ve completely blanked on), she has her life all together and then all of a sudden her future self pays her a visit and from there on out shit gets messy.
Now, the reason for the show’s awesomeness. One word y’all. Pepe. I get that I’m bias, having a tiny crush and all, but from the moment the show started to the walk home, only one thing stuck with me: Pepe.
Three sisters, all tough little cookies... it's crazy, just their personalities alone. They are all tomboys, I realize that their physique is also pretty boyish too. It's visually appealing to me. I'm the one with the boy cut... Francesca :)
My favorite song was "Shadowland" which took place when Nala was about to leave after Scar tried to make her his wife. It just told a story of remembering who you are no matter what path or what journey you take in life. It's about remembering your family, and everything that makes you - YOU.
I couldn't get away from the thoughts, however, that this was the first time most of these plays were being performed to an audience. Any audience. I was there for the opening night, and this was really the first of any instance of the plays being performed anywhere.
Like most romances, there was the guy (Johnny) who fights for the love of the beautiful woman (Mora). Mora worked with this creepy show business dude at a side show on the board walk that claimed to have a real mermaid.
From this point on, I am only allowed to speak when spoken to. I cross the threshold of a curtained archway, stopping to exchange pleasantries with an old man, a congressman. We shake hands and make small talk, before the conversation shifts.
The word sonder, as defined by the playwright Dan Moldovan, means 'the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.' This definition alone made me super curious to see this show.
On this day, it was the 4th of July, I purposefully chose to see something that would feed my soul. Pipeline on this day was my BBQ, my mac n’ cheese, my collard greens, my mashed potatoes, my complete plate of soul food.
