My name is Youssra and I'm a pharmacist at CVS. I'm a fun, friendly, slightly weird human in the constant pursuit of adventure. I love concerts, theater, traveling, trapezing, naps and food. When I'm not working, you can find me roaming the city or finding my next travel destination. At first, I seem quiet, but you'll soon find I'm actually quite talkative. I like to keep things light and fun, and I hope to share new and exciting experiences with you all.
The show starts when a guy in a fabulous dress walks out and starts singing "hello New York". There are dancers in retro outfits, and a band that looks like they are right out of the 70's! It looked very groovy.
A trick that I still haven't figured out was where a random audience member picks between two books, picks a page, and then picks a word from that page and writes it down. He guesses said word. And I'm like... how did he do that?
I left feeling like dang divas are cool, and entertaining! Why do they get such a bad rep? I felt like maybe my life would be more interesting and funny if I embraced more of my inner diva. Except, minus the homicide.
I was curious what this would be about, as I never really hear about gravediggers or lullabies, especially not together. I thought it would somehow be related to the circle of life as gravediggers deal with death, and lullabies are primarily sung to babies. I was wayyyyyyy off.
I had such high hopes for this show. When I found out it was about a hoarder, I was interested. I suspect that my mom is a hoarder, given that she likes to buy things that she never uses and refuses to throw any of them away. This guy was a hoarder to the MAX.
The story was complex, humans are complex. It's not exactly black and white. Here we had a clearly troubled teen who joined the army to escape his life and was recruited, despite his personality disorder and history of substance abuse being known. So how much fault did he really have in the way things played out?
As a huge fan of The Twilight Zone, I was so excited to see this play. Growing up in the 90's, this was my Saturday afternoon JAM. The Twilight Zone basically explores various themes and topics by presenting them as weird events that happen in an alternative reality called "The Twilight Zone".
I am at a legit circus! Tents and all! This is my first time ever and I feel like I am fulfilling my childhood dream. I rush in and try to find my seat. I enter in the middle of an act so the usher has me wait. We have a brief conversation about how awesome Sailor Moon is (she told me she liked my shirt).
Throughout the play, the conversations the characters were having made me think about a lot of things. The first being that I have no clue what it is like to be gay in America. The play showed me how difficult it can be, living in a society that (for a long time) did not accept you for who you are. I have not experienced enough discrimination to really know how it feels to be different, despite being half Arab myself.
The show finally opens with a static trapeze performance and I immediately think man, these people have some cajones. There’s a guy holding a girl mid-air and she has NO SUPPORT from the ribbons. I mean, wow. Kudos.
