Sexual Perversity in Chicago

Went to ACT last night and had a lovely time with Fred, Christyn, and Rick. Dinner at Cafe Mason was yummy again, opting for the Gnocchi Alla Siciliana again, but tasted Fred's tortellini and it was the yum. Might have to have that next time. We headed to the theater, and throughout the play, Rick kept saying, "Dude, that guy reminds me of Thomas." Not in physical features at all mind you, but entirely in manner of speech. There's a certain bluntness to Thomas that makes almost everyone think, "That guy is an asshole" when they first meet him. And to a degree, it's true, but he's also a true friend and will say what needs to be said without pussy footing around. So Christyn gets up after the show and she says, "That guy reminds me so much of Thomas" and I say, "I know! That's what Rick has been saying all through the show." And yet Frederik, who barely knows Thomas can only say, "I dunno. I didn't really like it. That guy was such an asshole. I can't believe anyone would really be like that." And the three of us just start trying to explain. Anyway, now we all miss Thomas and want to see him. And then we had dessert back at Cafe Mason and told kitten tales. It was a really good night.

  • Was the play good ?
    A letter to the Chronicle panned it,

  • It was very short. It was very dated. It used uncomfortable language
    ("cunt"). But it was a decent production. The set was great. The guy
    playing Bernie was fabulous. Meh, I wouldn't recommend running out and
    buying tickets right now. But it wasn't bad.
