I Take My Mom To Fancy Shows With Naked People In Them

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

I never know what to get my mom for Hanukah or her birthday.  She’s pretty content with what she has, I suppose.  This year I decided to get tickets for the two of us to see a show and I picked Chicago Shakespeare’s Macbeth.  They always do such great stuff and it’s the first time they’ve done Macbeth so I figured it would be pretty amazing.

I knew my friend Lacy was rehearsing with Chicago Shakespeare Theater and asked her if she was in the show.

Lacy (via e-mail):  I’m actually in Midsummer, which opens in a few more weeks but should be pretty good.  I haven’t seen Mac yet, but I’ve heard it’s innnnnnsannnnnnneee.   Lots of nudity and an 85-year-old man in drag and pregnant.  I can’t wait to see it. Have fun with your mom. 

Wait.  What?  Lots of nudity?  Lots?  Of all the shows in the city, I’m taking my mom to the one withe lots of nudity?!  Being the hip lady she is, my mom’s still totally up for it, but I think maybe we should go see Lacy in Midsummer Night’s Dream instead.

You (whoever you are) should definitely go see Lacy in whatever she does.  I’ve seen her in lots of shows and all of them totally blew me away.


Ev — You made the right choice. “Midsummer..” was great! It was a great afternoon — thanks.
