this past friday, h and i went to the steppenwolf theater and saw good people. it was our first time to the theater together and this show was really wonderful.
synopsis: When Margie Walsh loses her job at a South Boston dollar store, she reaches out to old flame Mike, a Southie boy who left the neighborhood and became a successful doctor. Margie's attempt to hit Mike up for a job takes on a threatening cast when she realizes the power a secret from Mike's past holds. From Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire, Good People looks at the dangerous consequences of choosing to hold on to the past or leaving it behind.
the play was a great blend of comedy and drama and the actors did a pretty good job with their south boston accents. it was really entertaining to see the sets change (something that didn't really happen at the opera or ballet) and it was impressive to see what the actors could do on what seemed like a small set.
next up... we're planning on seeing a show at the second city next month.
