May 5th I saw Acid Mothers Temple with Phantom Family Halo and Clang Quartet at Local 506 in Chapel Hill. I've seen AMT several times and enjoyed them every show. AMT plays extremely heavy, complex, instrumental psychedelic rock. Great stuff. Phantom Family Halo kept giving me mental echoes of the Doors, were excellent and I'll gladly see them again. Clang Quartet, my friend Scotty played his usual intense noise set.

Saw Man of La Mancha last night at Burning Coal: an almost bare set, modern casual wear as costumes making the cast look like the audience, and all the spectacle came from the performances. Some odd mental echoes that were almost certainly just me. Worth seeing.

Left work and headed to Durham to get dinner by myself before a show. Arrived at restaurant, opened satchel...and had no books with me to read. Oh, the shame. Made do with the excellent meal, and for entertainment peoplewatching, primarily the unintentional floor show of this horrifically pompous fellow one table over who from his condescending monologues at his dinner companion was probably the kind of guy who stopped drinking merlot after Paul Giamatti's meltdown in _Sideways_. Food was excellent, though.

The rest of the evening was nicer after meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] andyhat at Duke for the touring-from-New York Fiasco Theater's staging of Cymbeline. I've read the play only once a very very long time ago, and know the Pink Floyd song much better than the play, so I was looking forward to new to me. Nicely done staging, [livejournal.com profile] andyhat mentioned some abridgement points he noticed: in particular he wondered how one actor playing two specific parts would handle a situation where both characters were onstage at the same time and the production handled it quite simply by not doing that small bit. Enjoyable show.

Fiasco Theater is at Duke for two weeks in residence and is doing a staged reading of Measure For Measure that weekend I'd like to attend if scheduling permits.

Tonight [livejournal.com profile] maegwynn and I went to the opening night of the Raleigh run of the broadway musical Green Day's American Idiot. Runs tomorrow through Sunday locally and elsewhere in the US afterward. If you even vaguely like the album, or the kind of music of the album, you may like this. Overall, elements of the show's staging brought to mind Julie Taymor's film Across the Universe.

Preshow dinner was a food truck rodeo in the park out front, chose and liked ChirbaChirba Dumplings over the other options. We admired the work of an artist painting the above picture over dinner.

We had excellent seats: two left of centerline, front row of the pit, which played in nicely as one of the female leads gave [livejournal.com profile] maegwynn her guitar pick after the final number of the show as everyone left the stage.

On Friday [livejournal.com profile] maegwynn and I went back to see Henry V (on trapeze) at Burning Coal Theatre Company (a nice surprise to run into [livejournal.com profile] ovrclokd and [livejournal.com profile] thebroomecloset at the show, too). [livejournal.com profile] maegwynn rarely wants to see a show of any kind twice and her wanting to see the production again indicates how much she enjoyed the first time. Last show of the three-week run is this afternoon at 2pm.

...and on a different note, the people who brought a live musical adaptation of Labyrinth last year to the Nightlight in Chapel Hill are staging a live musical adaptation of The Big Lebowski this weekend. Doors at 7pm, show begins at 8pm, two intermissions, and a "Mid-Century Modern Dance Party" of 1950s and 1960s music after. $12 tickets. The Nightlight's bar is well-stocked with White Russians, too.

[livejournal.com profile] maegwynn and I went to see Henry V (on trapeze) at Burning Coal Theatre Company tonight. It was awesome. Yes, it's mostly on trapeze. No, it's not a gimmick: the trapeze work is integrated into the performance as three-dimensional blocking, and adds an interesting almost film-like quality to the performance. They had me from the moment they conjured a throne from trapeze bars for Henry. Solid performances. Loads of fun. Go see. Shows Sunday, and ends next weekend after its Thursday to Sunday run.

Firstly, the event continues tonight with another huge list of performers beginning at 7pm and continuing to 2am. With 15min slots, it's the musical equivalent of North Carolina weather - don't like current conditions, wait a little and it'll change. about last night )
