We bought a subscription to the theater with our friends Mashie and Ezra. We got to see six plays – some were good, like Chicago, and some were bad, like the Canadian one about the girl who eats dirt.
Last night was our last play – Hairspray. We decided that because it was Ezra’s birthday we’d go out for sushi first. yum. We were a little bummed because we had asked them to bring out a cake and sing Happy Birthday, but they forgot. poopies. They did give us the cake for free…but we managed to forget it at the theater.
The play was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it. It was very loud and gaudy and cheesy and lovable at the same time. And it was funny. I laughed so much. The funniest part, I think, is that the girl who plays Tracy Turnblad was on American Idol last year – Vanessa Oliverez. Gav wasn’t too into the play, but the 1/2 bottle of Smirnoff that he downed helped him tolerate it.
