Went to see a show at the U of M experimental theater this afternoon.

Frankenstein in love.

I haven't felt so old and fat in a very long time.

Isn't that show great? You should have called me, I would have gone and seen it with you again. I really like that show. That is the theatre my show will be in.

Damn. Sorry-- I even had reservations for two. I like the theater space, too. It's something I should have asked you to.

Did you like it? I know the whole cast really well. They have worked so hard on it. The show was cast before winter break.
The space is awesome. I hope your coming to my show

Sasha (the redhead) is my lovely friend-- I don't know any of the others. I thought everyone was really stiff, and there was a lot of reciting of lines as opposed to acting, and some of the inner moments were missed.

I kept thinking of how I'd like to stage it, but I'm much more for movies rather than stage these days.

I did like it. I thought it was fun, and it was nice to get out of the house and into a live theater, all the more so for the pretty mostly-nekkid girls. Sasha knocked herself out trying to get in shape for the show, and I am duly appreciative.

And yes, I'm planning on coming to your show.

eh it's the X, what more could you want? I just thought it was clever. Could have been better with me cast in it... but really who's thinking about such things? :P

Everyone is all about movies, I tell you theatre is a dying art. Good thing we live in Minneapolis. I have never loved anything more then live theatre. I saw The Balacony yesterday at The Red Eye. AMAZING How could anything be better then live theatre?

Acting for live theater and acting for movies are two different things, and the experience of watching them is different as well. I really enjoy both, but I get to play more with movies.

I loved parts of it. A lot of the acting was really stiff for my tastes-- that kind of "I don't know what do do with my hands when I'm not saying my lines" kind of thing, but that does come more with practice.

It was an interesting take on the play. They did really well for no budget.

But I was surrounded by rather attractive college kids, and I was pretty obviously out of my element.

DAMN! They were doing a production of Death of A Salesman at my local community college. I wanted to go. Now it's too late. I forgot to look up the details after class last night! That is my favorite play EVAR! :(

i think the U of M makes lots of people feel that way. I decided on my b-day to avoid it in the future. experimental theater is kinda neat though...

Hrm. Busy doing ADR stuff. Barb's here, nobody is dead yet. She's gonna be gone the rest of the week, but will be coming back next weekend to stay.

We're getting along, though not without some bumps.

She cleaned the kitchen. That is freakier than you can imagine.
