A New Brain

Last night we went to see A New Brain - a musical put on by the Longwood Players in the Cambridge YMCA theatre (only a short walk from home). It's author is William Finn who also wrote The Falsettos and the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

I was led to it because i_f_f is a cast member playing the nice nurse. It was amusing; I kind of like corny musicals with an interesting theme although I don't see many of them. A couple of the cast members were slightly overpowered by the band so not all their words could be heard, but overall it was a good show put on by an amateur/community theatre group and one consequence of this is that tickets prices are low - a rarity these days.

It's only playing through Sunday.

Oh! I wish I'd known.

We all felt a little shaky at the beginning, like our blend was off. For my part I didn't feel like it was my strongest performance. But thanks for coming!!!
