Culture That Doesn’t Come from Yogurt…
When I was a lot younger, I had dreams of becoming a stage actor, but even back then, I had the nagging need to make ends meet instead of throwing caution to the wind and following my dreams.
The closest I get to those dreams of magic and whimsy now are watching as an audience member. I have an ever-growing wish list of performances I would love to see one day – even a couple of operas too.
La Cage Aux Folles – A story of two gay men, a straight son about to be married and the introduction of the soon to be conservative in-laws. It’s all about remaining true to themselves, regardless of what others may think.
La Traviata – A story of a woman, gone astray, living the life of wild indulgences until she meets a true gentleman, but their relationship is bound to disgrace his well-to-do family. Can they find true love or will it come too late?
La Boheme – Another story of love, lust, despair and jealousy. What more could you want? True love is once again found, but tragedy will strike in the end.
Let go of your preconceived notions, step out of comfort zone and try something different. The theatre is a great place to start.
