We’re not sure if it’s clear from the rest of our blogging, but we like to try new things. We also like to explore the nooks and crannies of things we already like, to see if there are hidden treasures. So it is with theater.
This is part of our 100 Things in 2016 challenge. Here’s the full list.
Becky has a soft spot for community theater, and the closest troupe is in Vancouver. We had a free evening that aligned with their production of Parfumerie, so we went!
It was… here’s the thing. This play was written in Hungarian in 1937. I get that it’s a classic romantic play, and that it probably pioneered some comic gags that were so successful they’re now tired clichés, but maybe it’s just not for us. It was 3½ hours long, and we felt like the whole plot could have been condensed down to 60 minutes.
But the experience was a success. We’re still talking about it. So in the end it was worth it to go. Support your local community theater, people!
