Local Theatre: Brighton Beach Memoirs

On Friday night, Ann and I went to see the New Court Theatre‘s production of Brighton Beach Memoirs. As always, we had a great time. Josh Burton, who directed the play and runs the company, consistently puts on productions of the highest quality and with some of our area’s finest actors. If you’re anywhere in the area, be sure to put it on your to-do list.

During the intermission, Josh helped serve snacks and sell raffle tickets. He looked at me and said, “I’m sorry, but what’s your name again?” I told him. (Josh used to work in the same offices as my stepmother, but we only see each other a few times a year, mostly at his plays.) “That’s right! I’m sorry. Oh, and guess what? You won something in the last raffle.”

So, it seems I have the eponymous neon sign from their production of The Spitfire Grill on its way. I think it may end up over our stove.
