in comes company...
"my favorite quote is, the unexamined life is not worth living."
"and i always say, the unlived life is not worth examining."
on a total serendipitous fluke (free tickets) i saw the Broadway revival of the Stephen Sondheim musical Company last night. in recent years, i have lost all respect for musical theater, particularly anything i've seen on Broadway. just loads and loads of expensive government cheese.
not Company, thank god. it's an amazing show that manages to capture the complexity of love and marriage in modern times. a piece of theater whose book and lyrics are as beautiful as its music with actors whose acting is as lovely as their voices (and they all play instruments simultaneously!). it is sooo not poufy. i might even venture to say i left not a little bit changed.
always fascinating, isn't it, how the universe always sends you precisely what you need just when you need it?
and i now have a crush on the guy who plays Bobby, Raul Esparza. i'm pretty sure we locked eyes at some point during the show. must be love.
or perhaps i was in his line of sight and his eyes were tearing up from the brightness of the lights.
and i'm pretty sure he's gay.
ah well. hope, dear ladies, springs eternal.
