No reservations

18 04 2008

ReservedLast week was fairly eventful as my life goes… highlights included a great local performance of Urinetown on Saturday and serendipitously getting into a Spoon concert on Monday. The latter event was great except for the staid crowd that pretty much sat there the whole time and chastised anyone that stood up by sticking a “Reserved” sign to their butt, not that I happen to have any specific examples of this happening. Oh that and the stupid Camel marketing everywhere, punctuated by thick clouds of smoke. Long story…

Urinetown is a great premise with great execution in the performance we saw. The problem lies in the actual writing of the musical itself. The “fourth wall” narrator gives it all away shortly after the show has begun, not that you couldn’t figure it out yourself. Still, not too shabby. Here’s to more fun in the future.
