Greg is not.
His theatre quota for the year is going to see the productions I direct. I like to go see plays, he likes to go see football games. You know, it's cool, because we balance each other out. Our different interests make us more interesting! Sometimes he wonders what the heck I'm doing when I read so many different plays and I wonder what the heck they're talking about on ESPN. (Granted, I've learned quite a bit but I still don't understand a lot of it.) But it keeps life interesting. And we both have learned to appreciate things we didn't know we could!
I've been wanting to go see plays. Badly.
Luckily, I have a buddy. She's my official "Theatre Buddy." She and I have similar opinions and tastes in theatre, so it works out really well!! We've seen four plays this summer alone and I'm looking forward to more with her! And we've gotten some free tickets to some of them due to her connections at the Alley Theatre. It has been a great theatre-filled summer!
Our theatre outings include:
|Intelligence-Slave at the Alley Theatre|
|Boeing Boeing at the Alley Theatre|
|Jewtopia at Stages Repertory Theatre|
|The Mousetrap at the Alley Theatre|
I know most of you aren't theatre nerds like me, so I won't bore you with my extensive opinions and reviews. But if you want a recommendation or want to know about any of these, let me know and I'll gush! I'm soooooooooo happy Houston has a fantastic theatre district, especially at the Alley!
The main point is:
I have a theatre buddy!
f you've never been to professional live theatre, please, by all means go. It's a completely different experience than the movie theatre. Support your local arts scene. It'd make a great date night. And not all live theatre is expensive. You'd be so happy you went. I promise.
