Is it a good thing or a bad thing that I spent a good portion of the evening crying at videos of colorblind people putting on their special glasses for the first time? I mean, it's a "the world is beautiful and contains joy" kind of good-crying, but also I'm kind of doing it because I know I would be crying anyway, so I might as well redirect it toward a positive reason. Anyway, life sucks but at least there's this:

My wife's new years resolution was to take advantage of as much free stuff offered in this area as possible.

It has paid off well for me. Last night we saw Romeo and Juliet performed downtown at the DC Shakespeare theater. It's a really nice place with Broadway performers and top notch theater actors doing the performances. I read the play in high school and really couldn't get into it at all, but to be honest, these actors made it much more enjoyable than I expected. I actually had a good time. Classy place.

It's worked out well for me that she made this resolution. We saw Branford Marseilles with the Army Blues Band a few months ago, and a local band at a small local neighborhood amphitheater. I missed out on seeing the national fireworks from a new skyscraper when she went because I was backpacking.

It has rolled over into paying for reduced price performances by doing lottery tickets at local venues and seeing more live music. We saw Something Rotten at the National Theater a couple months ago for really cheap.

And then we have been paying full price for some stiff too, like Hamilton, and the Avett Brothers at Wolf Trap.

This whole resolution to see live performances has been really good. And most of them have been very affordable or free. I know DC may have more to offer than most cities, but check out what your location offers. You may be surprised.

I recommend Synetic Theater, when it comes to DC-area theater. They have wide variety in their offerings. One thing they are doing is working through Shakespeare, and doing it without any dialog. The 14th, Richard III, is next year. They also have a fair bit of childrens' theater (which appears to be the bulk of their current schedule).

Well, it removes an entire level of difficulty. So, there's that, I guess.

It adds another level, though. Telling a story without words is a challenge.


It does bring up the philosophical question of whether it really is Shakespeare, since all we have of him is his words, and many of his plots were repurposed from older tales.
