Last night I went to see Blue Love, now on at La Boite. I enjoyed it! It was an interesting blend of many different things, smushed together into something entirely fun, yet thought provoking. Arriving home, the hubby and I had a rather interesting conversation regarding Simon (a bit player in the play, as it were).
Centred entirely around the concept of love the play takes stage with only one set, which does not change throughout its entirity. Simon, a stuffed dog (taxidermied – he’s very realistic!) forming part of the set, in no way involved with the action between the couple. He just sits there, his own little picture also beside the door of the ‘bedroom’, neither taking part in the drama laid out before us, nor shying away from it… he’s just… there.
Anyhow, it was a great show. I must admit, I found it a little shakey to start off with (I tend to get a little concerned if there is bribery of beer and popcorn before the show has even begun!), but the moment Glenn opened his mouth to sing his first musical piece, the lights dimming and the room going silent, it had won my heart. My god, what a voice! Absolutely enchanting.
It certainly isn’t a show for everyone, methinks. However, if the thought of a man naked, save for a bunch of grapes covering an essential area approaching a lovely elderly lady in the crowd, inviting her to pluck one from the bunch seems like fun, then you might want to check it out.
And now for some interesting spam, links removed. I was talking about how I liked spam like this the other day, and now I’ve gotten some – yayyyy! Be prepared for some grammatically incorrect, rather garbled nonsense:
