OGIC and I just got back from seeing Rose Rage, Chicago Shakespeare’s five-and-a-half-hour marathon performance of all three parts of Henry VI (abridged, and complete with an hour-long dinner break). Still on the menu are one more play, Steppenwolf’s Man from Nebraska, plus a visit to “Manet and the Sea” at the Art Institute of Chicago. We’re really hitting the culture hard, thank you very much. And yes, we’re having fun yet, not least because we haven’t seen each other face to face for a year, which was way too long. Now I have to get her to come to New York to see Sweeney Todd!
I’ll be boarding a train for New York Sunday night, and the weatherman says I’ll be plowing through several inches of snow en route. I’ll be home when I’m home. Should I get stuck along the way, Our Girl will tell you all about it. Otherwise, expect extensive postings tomorrow.
