This is the second Tuesday we went out for another theater production…
We saw: “The Complete History of America – abridged” – with Cub, John and Andrea.
It was entertaining…and I felt relieved it was by three American members of the Reduced Shakespeare Company (“…reducing expectations since 1981”) – at least it didn’t feel like three Brits talking down to Americans…it was more like a “we’re laughing with you…” bit…
The show was funny but at times the men seemed to be trying a little too hard for the laughs…Andrea and I agreed the second half of the show seemed a bit more depressing….
We enjoyed the q/a period…I got the first question in “Who would you vote for in these elections?” Apparently, they didn’t consider this to e a “history” question…they took a quick survey of the crowd:
- Bush – a little clapping
- Kerry – a better response
- Elvis – hands down, he was the favorite
Then the Reduced Shakespeare players dubbed me “vote lady”….well..it’s better than the other title I earned from a stupid fark forum.
