What We Did Tonight

The good thing about Shakespeare is that you get the movie theater to yourself.

Wow! I want to go.

It was FABULOUS. We saw All's Well That Ends Well, which isn't particularly a child-friendly play (my 8yo was rather mercifully lost), but seeing the Globe, the actors on stage (as opposed to movie versions of the plays, where they move through "real-world" settings), the Tudor-era music, the sense of the closeness of the audience to the action -- all of that was just magical. A lot was lost on my 10yo, too, but he thoroughly enjoyed it all the same -- he had been the one who, when I proposed going, said, "You mean, like the real GLOBE THEATER? That is so cool."

Much Ado About Nothing starts its US run next week -- somewhere on the website there's a place to click for local showings and Fandango ticket sales. I was anxious to buy our tickets ahead of time, but as we and one other couple were the sum of the audience, I think I need not have been in such a lather.

We definitely plan to see Much Ado.

Its showing a few places around here, though nowhere really close. I think the nearest location is about half an hour away. I'm not sure that I could convince Dom to go with me. Or that the logistics would work if he did want to go. But oh that preview looked awesome. Seeing it on stage and in period costumes would be worth it. The Marlowe looked wonderful too.
