Last Tuesday night, Bob scored some tickets to the Rep because his friend was unable to attend, his loss was our gain. I had never been to the Rep before so I was excited to get cultured. The Rep is actually a pretty small theater and I would say that there is not a bad seat anywhere. It was cozy and intimate, the actors could easily interact with the audience.
Amadeus is a play told from the point of view of Antonio Salieri, a court composer in Vienna who becomes angry at God for gifting Mozart with such musical talent that it becomes his mission to destroy him. It is a fantastic play about jealousy and what it can do to turn a person so ugly.
I really enjoyed the play and the experience of being at the Rep. It is a vastly different experience watching a play here when compared to a theater as large as the Fox. One observation, though, we were probably one of the youngest people there, by ten years. I could have been the play or maybe it’s just the Rep. Who knows? Either way, I will have to remember to check out what other plays will be going on there in the future.
Mikey, thanks for the tickets!
