Tuesday February 25, 2014 / 8:00pmBrief Encounter
How was your experience?
Seats in the newly opened Wallis Annenberg Cultural Center aren't cheap! Thank goodness some of their tickets are available through Goldstar. I saw quite a few empty seats at last night's performance so apparently it must benefit the Wallis to sell some of its otherwise unsold seats through Goldstar. But what I mainly want to say is that Brief Encounter was one of the most sublime 90 minutes in my memory of theatre (and I see a lot of theatre in Los Angeles). The original movie was interesting but this stage show was spell-binding! It was to theatre what yoga is to mental clarity and peace of mind. Plus imaginative production values with strong pluses in scenery, use of video from movie, humor, costumes, lighting, and a roving band of 4 musicians. So positive an experience that I will be treating 2 relatives to a performance IF tickets are made available on Goldstar for the weekend of Mar 7th - 9th. A strong recommendation to you to go see this show!
