(Nick, David and Carson prepare for "Eurydice," but aren't sure whether they will leave feeling sexy, angry or pithed.)
Last night I took three of my favorite people to see "Eurydice" at Second Stage Theater. It was my second time going and I was bringing Nick, David and Carson on the wings of my glowing recommendation. For me, I don't think there is much more pressure than taking people to a piece of art that you fiercely admire. It's a nerve-racking experience filled with stolen glances to my sides to see how my guests are enjoying it. I should have had little doubt seeing that "Eurydice" is a gorgeous piece of theater full of incredible emotion, design and performances.
When the lights came up after the 90-minute, intermission-less, gut-wrenching play, I could tell by the stunned looks on their faces that they had enjoyed it. My second viewing didn't have quite the impact that the first did but there are so many gorgeous moments in this production to still elicit a response even though I knew what was coming. Relief flooded me as we walked back into the swirling vortex of death known as 42nd Street on a Thursday night. After seeing their reactions to "Eurydice" I am more convinced than ever to plug it on the blog and urge people to go and see it! It just extended AGAIN so grab a ticket before it goes away!
