Eliza Skinner plus two plays
While in New York City, we saw two plays and a one-woman show. In a small theatre, we saw the Atlantic Theatre production of 10 Million Miles. The set was terrific, dominated by a pickup truck as the main set piece, with the water towers and power lines well done. It was very enjoyable and I got Mare Winningham's autograph. Fun! On Broadway, we saw Spring Awakening, which actually started at the Atlantic Theatre. We liked it, except I didn't like the choreography very much. (Sorry Bill T. Jones) The set was spare and each night 35 audience members had seats on stage. Hmm, don't know if I'd like being within the action. The music in both of these shows was good, and we have new CDs to buy now. The other show we saw, and loved, was Eliza Skinner is Shameless! at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. If you find out that Eliza is performing in your area...see her! Wow! We'd see her show again. And the people we were with were seeing it for a second time. Check her out. I'm pluggin' Eliza shamelessly.
