I was invited by Goblinbox, thanks to VUBOQ, to see The Taming of the Shrew. When we arrived they had to search for the tickets my friend bought weeks ago. Goblinbox (the super-techno-geek that she is) had the receipt on the ready in her iPod Touch but the lady behind the counter found our tickets without incident. I would insert a photo of that ticket here but Flickr is being an asshole so, no visual aids for you to enjoy. Suck it, Flickr!
I will update the post later with the pics. (maybe) I digress. We walk down toward the stage and there is a 1950's style travel trailer as the focal point of the set. I believe we both thought something like; "Great! Another updated, [likely] ruined adaption or interpretation of Shakespeare." We were so wrong! It was hilarious! I truly enjoyed myself. The first time I laughed and realized how much I was enjoying it, I had to look to Goblinbox, who was also laughing. Fantastic! We both loved it. Then there was the cute boy that played Grumio. One word: YUM. Seriously. Yum. Of course, he is married (IRL) to Bianca. She happens to be equally cute for the boys to admire. Aside from Grumio being adorable (Mullet and all) I would say Kate was my favorite. Something about a girl in a wedding dress and biker boots. I can identify. For those that were there..."BEER ME!" For those that weren't... Well, you probably don't get the joke.
