saturday night my mom and i went to see a wonderful production of the shakespeare play at the chicago shakespeare theatre on navy pier, and it was such fun. first, it was nice to spend an evening with my mom (thank you, phrysque, for knowing we needed that), and second, it was nice to go to the theatre again. it’s been a while.
the trick in this, for me, is that i always leave wishing i had been involved in some way. the costumes, the sets, the rehearsals, the nerves, the laughter, the language . . . i don’t profess to be a great actor, but it sure is a lot of fun. it’s also a lot of work to become established in a city like chicago. guess i’ll just have to be satisfied with being an observer for now.
