I saw The Corn Is Green at the Huntington. As I remember other Huntington productions, this one was extremely well-crafted and well-performed, ranging from gags that would be at home on a sit-com to anguish in the face of dilemmas.

It's uncommon for me to get misty-eyed at a show, but I did at this one, reflecting on the teacher's sacrifice for her student. It was quite humbling to consider how much my teachers have done for me (though none of them adopted my unplanned child).

I'm eager to get back to the Huntinton many, many more times.

Saw Bread and Puppet Theater Sourdough Philosophy Spectacle at BCA Cyclorama in Boston. I'd wanted to see a B&PT show for many years. It was certainly interesting, both for theatrical techniques (from primal sounds to crowd scenes) and for themes, but it really wasn't my thing. I was walking out when the show came to a close.
Bread & Puppet Sourdough Philosophy Spectacle at BCA Cyclorama was painful and slow. I admire their earnestness and effort, but I don't want to be stuck indoors at one of their performances again.

Saw A Chorus Line at Broadway Series South in Raleigh. It was well-performed, and it was kind of cool having the 'Director' doing his part from a few feet away from me in the house, but the show just didn't grab me.
