August: Osage County

The play won a Tony and a Pulitzer prize and to think, I almost didn't go. At over three hours long, it seemed too much for a week night. But Shana and I (along with her student ID - half price, third row center tickets!) loved every minute. So much going on - the family drama: the alcoholic dad, the pill-popping mom, the creepy uncle, the cousin that's really your half-brother, the sister that has to always take charge when things fall apart, the sister that leaves town when things fall apart and the other sister, the one in love with the cousin that's now your goes on and on and we all know somebody in there.   The characters and the writing and the set and the dialogue was intense, but so hysterically funny.

Stand up - Applause, applause, applause, applause.
