Tonight we went and saw A Midsummer Night's Dream presented by a company of fools. We were late and we skipped dinner to make it there for the 7 pm show. Pretty hungry, but it's okay because you're just sitting in a camp chair, in the park by the river while the sun sets and live actors perform a 400+ year play. You know, just another Monday. I was really impressed how funny they were and how much they interacted with the crowd. Honestly going to see the play I didn't know if I'd like it - I suspected that I wouldn't. But I was wrong, and that's a good thing.
My favourite part was their liberal use of "magic potions" - i.e. water balloons. Funny cast, quick improv when something funny and distracting was going on (airplane overhead, car alarm, etc). More along the way that I can imagine the plays originally were - funny, interactive, and with life. Best pay-what-you-can show that I've seen.Posted by jim at July 19, 2010 09:47 PM
