The Donkey Show was kind of fun, and there were lots of beautiful people, both in the cast in glitter and on the floor as audience, but it just didn't grab me. I'm glad I brought ear plugs, too.

I saw Fences at the Huntington with Erik and Alex up from Providence. I was quite impressed with the show. I've liked August Wilson works put on at the Huntington before, but I don't remember the audience gasping three times during a play before. And I gasped once, too -- a rarity for me. And it was just on the simple delivery of surprising and heartbreaking news -- no violence, no screaming, just a devastating statement of fact. Looking forward to the next Huntington show I see next year.

Had a lovely little trip to Spectacle Island in Boston Harbor with Rick. Kind of cool yet strange to see how green it's becoming after being filled upwards in the 1990s. Lots of open grass, nice to lie in and feel the wind and the sun without hearing much of the city a few miles away.

Varla Jean Merman in Provincetown was excellent and, as expected, bawdy and funny. Varla Jean and the Mushroom Heads got to play with kids' shows in an even racier way than Avenue Q. Can't wait to see her again.
