WORST/WEIRDEST SHOW EXPERIENCE?
I forget the show name, but I once attended a play in a very enclosed space that consisted of a lot of shrieking and screaming on the part of the actors...legends say my ears are still ringing to this day.
WHAT VINE DESCRIBES YOU?

WHATS THE MOST USELESS FACT YOU KNOW?
Peanuts aren't actually nuts - they're legumes!
A “Fair Lady” in an unfair world.
I often unconsciously think of myself as the “master of my fate, captain of my soul.” But am I?
When I sat down to write about this performance, I had no idea what I was going to say about it.
A straight white man (me) and my fiancé…this gets interesting.
People were slamming tables, throwing apples, and yelling in my (and other audience member's) faces - probably not for the faint of heart!
Once On This Island is the story of the Caribbean and of a girl named Ti Moune. It’s about understanding where you’re from, chasing what you believe in, and the struggles that emerge when those two clash.
The subject also seemed kind of obscure. Like, I’m a big fan of theater, but I am definitely not a theater person. No acting, please. I wasn’t totally sold on a play about actors...
More than anything else, I felt a lot of pity for the characters in this story. I perceived them as caricatures of types of people we all know in our lives (or at the very least have heard about).
I particularly loved that the actors played their instruments and sang on stage, like they were a real band.
The first thing that took me by surprise was just how cheery and lighthearted many of the songs and characters were. Gander was cast as a communal, friendly little town. It’s hard to associate 9/11 with feelings of happiness and friendliness, at least for me.
