I went to see Carmen at the Lyric Opera in Chicago on Thursday. Here is my video blog about it, and yes, I absolutely loved it.

This is the last weekend to see As You Like It! We've had a great run so far; everyone has given their all, and it could not have been better. Last Monday was Industry Night, so we decided to experiment a bit and had the cast sit in the audience for the production. Instead of leaving the stage, cast members remained in the audience except during costume changes, and just stood up and started their lines out of nowhere. It got even better when cast members *offstage* started reacting to what was being said *onstage*. Touchstone in particular was mortally offended. Here are some photos from that show:
Come see us tonight!!
If you feel like having an adventure, take a trip down Lower Wacker Drive. I haven’t been down there in a while and thought it might be fast at two in the morning, but lo and behold it was like a dirt road in the middle of a Metropolis. I had fun dodging and weaving around various pillars, cones, and construction workers (who found my presence rather amusing). It was all very post-apocalyptic and exciting; it seemed as if aliens had indeed invaded and the city was crumbling in upon itself. It was a completely different world.
