NWCTC's Arms and the Man

Matt and I took the MAunts to our favorite theater company's production of Arms & the Man by George Bernard Shaw.

Here are our typical poorly lit pre-show pictures.

We've seen a goodly amount of shows in this tiny theater with beds in them.  This one cleverly folded up to become an outdoor setting.
This picture shows the other side of the set.  One confused patron entered the theater and, perhaps confounded at the small size of the theater, took a seat on one of the chairs on stage.  There then passed an uncomfortable moment where I wondered if he was joking around or I should say something.  He looked similarly uncomfortable and after a moment remarked, "Oh, I see how it works" and crossed the stage to take a regular seat on the side.  Phew.

The play itself was a delightfully funny bonbon of a show, perfect for a January afternoon.

I love going to such intimate theaters. I know they exist here, but we rarely get to them.

Haha. Oh man, I would have died of embarrassment if I'd been the guy who sat on the stage.
