Last night, I saw MIT's Musical Theater Group perform Jesus Christ Superstar. I had never seen any performance (including movie) of this musical before, and this was a damn good show. Judas will blow you away, Jesus is right behind him (...snerk), [livejournal.com profile] usernamenumber was a great Pilate, and DocGreg's Herod was...surprising. ;)

I really suggest you go. It's playing for one more weekend, and it's so worth the $15. http://web.mit.edu/mtg/www/TicketReservations.html

My membership in the Broadway Across American e-Club has acquired me this email what reads:
Special Pre-Sale Offer For You!
Buy Tickets Before the General Public
In The Heights
January 12-24
Boston Opera House


I believe, my friends, it is on like Donkey Kong.

I am going to go ahead and make the executive decision that we are NOT going the week before Arisia, because I will die be completely unable to enjoy the show due to stress. That leaves the following dates:
Tue 1/19 7:30pm
Wed 1/20 7:30pm
Thu 1/21 7:30pm
Fri 1/22 8:00pm
Sat 1/23 2:00pm and 8:00pm
Sun 1/24 2:00pm and 7:30pm

Ticket range: $44.05 for the ass-back of the balcony, $56.75 for front balcony/side mezz, $86.10 for mezz center, $102.50 for orchestra/front mezz.

Thoughts?

Anyone wanting to join for tasty brunch, jazz musics, and some HONK should be at Johnny D's in Davis Square at 11:15. Sorry for late notice.

(Also, I will be leaving from there to go to Code Monkey: the Musical at BU. You can also accompany me there!)

A thought occurred to me this morning that might serious hinder my love of Rent, or at least give me something to rant on about it.

The background arc of the whole first half of the musical is how this open space that can be put to use by the homeless and by bohemian artists is going to be torn down and replaced with an office building. Maureen's existence in the first act is as the artist who is so protesting this idea that she writes herself a one-woman, one-act play to present in that very space. She cares about it. She is personally invested.

Yet when she shows up at the end of act 1 (riding her motorcycle through a crowded flea-market-type area of Alphabet City in seeming disregard for injuring other people) her first line is, "Joanne, which way to the stage?"

She doesn't know where her performance space is? The one she's written a play to save? The one she's so vehemently protesting the removal of?
