#61 See a play at the Guthrie
I have not been to the Guthrie since high school, (just a few years) That was long before they moved it down by the river. I love to see plays and get lost in the magic. Dan and Nicole gave me tickets to "As You Like It" as a thank you for helping with their wedding. I had a general idea of the plot before I went, but not details. The play was in Dowling Studio for those of you that know the Guthrie. As with all of Shakespeare's plays it takes a while to get used to the wordage. I did think that the first act was very confusing though. I also didn't understand the woodland creatures. I am not that well versed on Shakespeare, so I may be missing something. With that said I had a really good time. The views are wonderful from the building. I would love to watch a thunderstorm from there sometime. The part where the floor was covered with clear plexiglass was scary to me. I did walk across it, but very, very carefully. I would like to thank Pete for going with me and being driver (I hate driving in the cities). I would love to go to another play!
