Broadway: So close and yet so far…

Friday, June 6, 2008

So, I was able to see August: Osage County this week. Wow! I heard that it was good and that it was the one to beat at the Tony’s, but I wasn’t expecting the show I saw. It’s the kinda show I think I need to see twice. Basically it’s a show about a very dysfunctional family that just has very hard times. There are a lot of deep subjects covered, and therefore it’s a long show (two intermissions). The first scene was rather slow and my mind wondered a lot, but once it passed the show got really intense and yet funny. Unfortunately, I think a lot was said in the first act that would have shed light on the rest of the play. That’s why I really should go see it again. Great show! Be warned…. it’s one of those shows that use the F-word every two seconds.

That means I only have one more show to see that’s on my list – South Pacific. I’m so close to seeing all the shows, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to. South Pacific is sold out until August. Booo. I have plans to wait in the cancelation line this weekend, but I don’t think I will be very lucky. I’m still going to try. Well, have a great weekend and don’t get into too much trouble.
