Born Yesterday

Last week I got to check out Born Yesterday at the CBT. I'm not the craziest about that type of straight play --is it a comedy? a dramady? a moral lesson with laughs? -- but I did enjoy myself very much. Heather Prete is amazing as Billie Dawn, and the rest of the cast is solid, but it is Jayne Morgan who will knock your socks off. Oh, and I was right, it is all very pretty.

Did you see the show? Review it here!

REVIEW: Born Yesterday (Clarence Brown Theatre)

I have a season subscription to CBT. I showed up to see Born Yesterday on the opening Saturday, and the play was cancelled due to "technical difficulties". I went back on September 8th, and it was a superb performance! It wasn't as good as many of the other other CBT plays I've seen, but it was still enjoyable. And you're right - Jayne Morgan was terrific! I really enjoyed her performance in Arsenic and Old Lace last season!

Looking forward to the next CBT Production - All My Sons!

You may want to put a link in the sidebar for Broadway in Knoxville.

Alright, damnit, write in this blog again! I don't have you in my sidebar for nothing, sir. And hell if I can follow the format of that crazy Knoxville 520 blog you have.

That's right, I'm watching. And you're not doin' nothing. It's like I've captured a ladybug in a jar and it's upped and died on me but it's still there because it's a very pretty ladybug. Stuck on a stick and leaf. Looking alive, but not really.

Eh, fuck the metaphors. Where's your wittiness gone?

I think I'll leave comments until you start writing here again.

Comment one:
The universal law makes clear that things from above must inevitably fall down toward the center of the earth according to their mass and discounting any climate occurences which might impede the rate of fall. I hope you sense the gravity of the situation.

p.s. Well, maybe not universal law. Maybe it's just earth law. I got a little pompous there.
