The Other Place, Manhattan Theater Club

TheotherplaceWe are definitely not seeing as much theater as we used to see.  We have basically wound down to having a subscription with the Manhattan Theater Club and that is it.  I might ramp up again in a few years or just pick them individually.  My friend is going with the latter and I think she might be on to something.  The only thing is that you have to pay attention, be organized and hope you pick the winners.  Not that easy but then again theater never is.

We went to a matinee of The Other Place starrring Laurie Metcalf who plays a brilliant neurologist who is slowly losing her mind.  The story unfolds over this one act play.  Metcalf is tremendous.  She must be absolutely exhausted at the end of each performance. 

One thing to note (that I really liked )is that of the four actors, one of them happens to be Metcalfs real life daughter.  That must be pretty cool to be able to perform together on the Broadway stage.
