Yesterday a friend casually mentioned getting “rush” tickets for a Virginia Rep show. Did you all know about this? How did I not? (Maybe it was on facebook.) Just in case you’re in the dark too, Virginia Rep is now selling tickets for same day shows, 2 hours before the show for a (significantly) reduced price! Here are the details.
So last evening we went to see Night Blooms, for nearly half price on a random Thursday night. While I love a planned evening at the theatre, there’s something equally sweet about a seeing a show I hadn’t even thought about over breakfast that morning. The show itself was well-written and well-acted. The relationships between characters were grey and complicated; the ending hopeful while resisting tying the whole thing up in big fluffy bow.
Today I was getting ready to sit down and write something about how awesome this one little unexpected surprise was, when I realized I’ve had a week full of them. From the big (seeing elk at the end of a long hike in Rocky Mountain National Park last Thursday) to the small (that delicious bowl of carrot, coconut, curry soup on Monday). I suppose it’s actually not so much about the awesome things, as it is the open-ness to seeing the awesome.
