Last night I saw the Quebecois circus group 7 Doigts de la Main perform their show Psy. The show uses circus acts in a theatrical style to depict various psychological (and slightly outside of psychological, I think - narcolepsy) disorders: hypochondria, OCD, addiction, phobia, etc. This is the same group that did the amazingly awesome hand-gymnastics dance routine depicting an abusive relationship that I first mentioned here a few years ago -- if you haven't seen it, watch here.

I loved last night's show. I definitely recommend it to anyone with interest in circus arts or psychology - especially both. :) My second favorite part was the addiction solo, and my favorite part was the third performer, the juggler, especially the second half of his set. I describe him as "the juggler" because apparently my interpretation of his disorder disagreed with what the program said. I had a VERY strong emotional response to that performance (crying on Wumpus) based on interpreting the displayed disorder differently than what I later found listed in the program. I'm sticking with my interpretation and curious if others reach it, too, so I'm avoiding saying either what I thought or what the program said. I would like anyone who goes to see it to not look at the program immediately but make your own interpretation, then report back to me. Thanks!

Psy is only running until the end of this weekend. Tickets are available here; click on the date in the calendar. Prices $15-69.

Also, thank you to [livejournal.com profile] siderea both for originally introducing me to the group and for alerting me last fall to this performance.

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

[livejournal.com profile] alexx_kay is an awesome friend and is treating me to a visit to Sleep No More on Thursday, December 10, at 7pm. I say this because you should also get tickets for then so we can decompress all together afterwards!

Alexx's first post slash review of the event is here and contains no spoilers. His second post, after thinking about the event for a few days, is here and doesn't contain spoilers as much as hints on how to enjoy the most of the event if you're sure you're only going to be able to go once. (It seems to be mutually agreed by all who have attended that you will want to go more than once.) It still might be more spoilery than some want, though, so be forewarned.

So buy tickets! Come along! Art!

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?

Ooft! This was a full weekend and a fuckton of fun. I will be happy to finish this post and crash, though.

On Friday evening I went to 90s Night at the Common Ground in Allston with [livejournal.com profile] hermitgeecko. I'd been before, but that was... wow, over a year ago. I really want to make this a more regular trip; certainly not weekly, but once every couple of months maybe. It's a cheap, fun night out. [livejournal.com profile] hermitgeecko and I had a fantastic time cutting up the floor all night long, so I'm guessing I'll be able to convince her to go again. :)

Saturday daytime was datetime and Rock Banding and other video gaming with [livejournal.com profile] zombie_dog and briefly kibbutzing with [livejournal.com profile] tkitch in the Foundation kitchen. Evening was the pre-JonathanCoulton/PaulandStormConcert dinner, where I determined once and for all that "double bock" is a synonym for "tasty to put in [livejournal.com profile] juldea's mouth," and then the waiting in line (or not at all in line, mister, no really) and the actual concert. Being there early snagged us awesome seats (thanks, [livejournal.com profile] rigel and [livejournal.com profile] londo!) Paul and Storm did a fantastic funny show as usual, powering through even as the Boston crowd wouldn't STFU about "what she said" et al. I still think they do a little bit too much of the same schtick every time with some of their songs and their choreographed movements, but at least this show there were new songs! Jonathan did a fantastic set as always, probably fully half of the songs chosen being not the "popular" ones and ones I didn't think he'd do live ("Betty and Me" and "So Far So Good"!) He also Kanye West-ed himself during "Mr Fancy Pants," which would earn my little internet-denizen-heart for life if he didn't already have it. *sigh*

Today was SLEEPING IN and then a leisurely morning on the internet followed by a sudden mad rush to get out of the house to get to Never After. Social foo occurred, but I think will mostly result in good. I hope. The show was awesome: quite entertaining, brilliant lyrics (I never got my chance to rant about how much I loved some of the homophone wordplay), cute story. There were a few negatives but certainly not enough to bring the whole thing down, and I really do hope it explodes from here. Then another food mob, at Martsa in Davis this time. Yay people. A little bit more video-game-datetime with [livejournal.com profile] zombie_dog, and then some of that internet stuff I do, and the night is now complete! *yawn*

On the schedule for the upcoming week: hang out with [livejournal.com profile] zigdon before he leaves town, Mage game, [livejournal.com profile] laura47's housewarming party, [livejournal.com profile] doompuppy's birthday bash, Arisia programming meeting. Meep. I don't know when I'm going to fit taking care of my house and laundry and stuff in...

Who: [livejournal.com profile] usernamenumber! [livejournal.com profile] doc_smiley! [livejournal.com profile] outlander! [livejournal.com profile] hfcougar! [livejournal.com profile] faerieboots! [livejournal.com profile] rustycoon! [livejournal.com profile] londo! And anyone else who wants to join...

What: The Orfeo Group's production of THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (abridged).

When: Tomorrow, Sun Aug 16. 5:30-6:00.

Where: The Publick Theater in Christian Herter Park, 1175A Soldiers Field Road, Brighton, MA, 02163.

How: By car (free parking!) or public transit (easiest is the 86 bus from Harvard Square to Everett Street.)

Why: Because it's awesome.

Other information: $15; either reserve online or pay at the "door": based on last week's showing, there'll be no problems paying at the door. Theater is open-air, kind of like this. Seating is a center section of stadium-like folding plastic seats and side sections of bench seats. We want the front row and stadium seats of course. :) Make sure to dress weather-appropriately.

Food options are either we all bring something and picnic or (as [livejournal.com profile] zapf and I found out last time) there's a fantastic diner nearby, The Breakfast Club. I tweeted a pretty good review of it last time. I will definitely at least need to stop by to get as large of a sour green apple smoothie as they will give me. I believe my mission will be based on [livejournal.com profile] londo's malt mission. How much green apple smoothie will kill me? Let's find out! But anyway, do people want to picnic, diner it, or decide these things solo?

Earlier tonight I attended a performance of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged in a park near the Charles River with an awesome set of people: [livejournal.com profile] zapf, [livejournal.com profile] bleemoo, [livejournal.com profile] rigel, [livejournal.com profile] zombie_dog, [livejournal.com profile] contradictacat, and [livejournal.com profile] iabervon. We sat in the front row and apparently were a fantastic audience for the actors, or at least they told us so afterwards. :D It's a very interactive, improvisational, funny show. Oh, and one of the actors is blazingly hot.

It turns out they've extended their performance schedule! Since [livejournal.com profile] usernamenumber couldn't see this show due to being in Ohio for [livejournal.com profile] big_jewfro's wedding, he needs to see it, and I am quite happy with the prospect of seeing it again. So I'm wanting to make another mob to show up and sit in the front row. Of the remaining performances, the one that fits for both usernamenumber and my schedules is Sunday night, the 16th. The performance is 6:45, but we'd want to show up in the 5:30-6:00 timeframe like everyone did this time!

Who's in?
(yes: me, usernamenumber, doc_smiley, thorgodoft, kamianya, pezzonovante; maybe: 21stcherryboy, witticaster, faerieboots, and rustycoon(?))
