Shakespeare vs. Alanis
Here is a video broadcast recorded yesterday. It was before our penultimate performance of Romeo and Juliet, and we were up against an Alanis Morissette concert four blocks away.
It turned out to be only a minor inconvenience. I don't know how much the fans paid for Alanis, but they got a rather short concert. She began playing somewhere in the middle of our first act, and by our fifth act she was all done. Our audience was forgiving and wholly engaged in our tragic tale. By the time events came to their twisted end, Alanis had gone quiet.
Tonight, we give our final performance and close the show. Those of us going on to Dynamo Camp will have a few days off before heading up to Limestre to get oriented and begin offering theatre enrichment for children suffering (or recovering) from chronic illness.
