Of course with my love of the theater, we couldn't miss seeing a show on Broadway! A friend of mine from university recommended August: Osage County. It was an especially good choice because the play was written by a Pulitzer Prize winning author from Oklahoma (my home state) and the story is even set in the great plains of the NE corner of the state.
We were lucky that Tony-nominated actress Amy Morton had recently rejoined the cast to reprise her role as Barbara. She is the hottest thing on Broadway right now and I can see why. The whole cast was strong as it's really an ensemble drama in the tradition of the greats like Eugene O'Neil. Just beautiful!
We got our tickets from the TKTS booth on Times Square where you can get half-price seats. We were right at the front, which made for some interesting angles - but it also gave me the opportunity to sneak a photo of the set which was strictly verboten!
