The state of the Arts
BUT...the weekend ended with me seeing a play that I love for the third time this month. DOG SEES GOD: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead at the Hudson Theater. It's a hilarious satire of the Peanuts comic strips & tv specials. I love this play to death and was dissappointed to see only 20 seats out of 99 filled (I counted) at the matinee. When I was in Chicago there, all the dancing & gaping anuses of the power bottom enlisted male chorus made the heat intolerable. It wasn't as bad at night last week but it was still handy to have the playbill as a fan.
Cast memberAndrea Bowenwas on Desperate Housewives for the past 4 years. To play to 20 people must be debilitating. The kid who plays Charlie Brown (Joseph Porter) in it is so everyday dreamy & hilarious and can do the cry on cue thing. Watching him made me want to take an acting class. The Linus character is hilariously adrift and my second favorite thing. The queen bee bitchy duo of Christine Lakin and Lauren Robyne are beyond hilarious playing roles that I'm infuriated I'll never be considered for because of the whole born-a-boy fact (although I submitted myself for a male role & never got a call in to audition...oh well). The whole cast is so amazing and I wouldn't be shocked to see most show up on television in the next few years.
And since they decided to not even audition me, I'm only going to give the link to the half price ticket site. Go here for tix and see it before it closes July 20. I would never recommend shit to anyone. Support the friggin arts.
