If you want to know why I get annoyed sometimes at my mother....it is because she was just like Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
Maggie, who was played by Scarlett Johansson, practically gave a 60 minute monologue in the first act of the play. It wasn't really a monologue since her husband spoke a few words...but it was close. That is how much I think my mother talks. I am not like that, at all.
So as I am getting so annoyed with the play because there is only so much tolerance I can handle when it comes to talking and whining the curtain comes down and I think, oh wow, this is going to be a short play. Alas, I was wrong. It was three acts with two intermissions - one of the longest plays I've ever seen...and it felt every second of it.
The second act I practically fell asleep because this was my view
So, I closed my eyes and listened....or fell asleep.
Scarlett was good, but what a super slow play. The set didn't change. There was so much 'arguing'. It just wasn't for me.
The best thing about it was that I sat next to Jason Antoon, who I recognized right away. But was surprised he was sitting so far away from the stage.
Dinner at Bond45 before the show was good. They have a fabulous mozzarella.
