Here is the banner from Richard III that didn’t get put on last night.018

After another delicious breakfast we went to the Literary Seminar where there was discussion on the plays that we saw yesterday.

Then we had the Actor Seminar where 2 of the actors came and had Q and A with the audience. These were the actors from The Music Man yesterday and they were delightful.004

The reason for the change of background is that it began to rain and we had to go inside for the rest of it. The actors today were Harold Higgins and Marion, the librarian from The Music Man.007

The afternoon play was The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams. Boy, was this play a downer! It is the story of a dysfunctional family: a mother, daughter, and son. the mother is continually reliving her youth as a southern belle, the son is stuck in a job he hates, and the daughter is so shy she won’t leave the house. At the end of the play, the mother is still reliving her youth, the daughter has had a visit from an old high school male friend, but after he leaves to go to his girl friend, she reverts back to her shy self, and the son has left home. Nothing is resolved; but life goes on.016

For supper, we went to a Thai restaurant and had a great dinner with appetizers, entrees and desserts.012010Fried bananas…reminded us of Whataburger fried pies!!011We had another opportunity to interact with actors while we were having supper. The actor who portrayed Richard III ate at the table next to us and we enjoyed conversation with him. Before we left, one of the fathers from R&J came in with friends. It's always good to see them out and be able to compliment them on their performances.

Tonight’s play was Romeo and Juliet.015

It rained a couple of times but the play continued. The play is a story of two feuding families and a couple of young lovers, one from one family one from the other. As everyone knows, the young lovers die at the end of the play.

Bummer on some of the less than happy plays but at least you always redeem the time with a good meal! I like the interaction you have with the actors. It is the frosting on the cake for the week, isn't it?!!
