ohh, about that new look…

For those of you who remember way back when I put out a call late last year for potential new looks for me. As promised I carefully reviewed all of them and then reinvented myself. So without further adu, for those of you who don’t live in Rochester, here is the stunning tranformation:

Now I’m sure you’re thinking the same thing everyone in Rochester has been:

what’s different?

Well first of all the glasses. Second of all the pose, the places the pictures were taken, the clothes, and… umm… *sigh* not much else. So what happened you ask. I was really planning on changing my hair. But when the hairdresser said she thought I looked good with long bangs I lost my nerve. Actually the hair does look much better. And since the cut Jenny had a talk with my hairdresser (who also does her hair) and I’ve been told that the next time I go in things will be different. I’ll keep you all updated.

in other news…

I finally saw something good at Geva, our local pro theatre. They are performing Richard Dresser’s Below the Belt, a great absurdist look at Corporate Life. The acting, blocking, sets and presentation were great. The play is good, though I think the second act is kinda weak and the end is a cop-out.

What I don’t understand is why Geva is charging $25 for the show. The tickets are way to expensive for a project that is supposed to get younger types interested in attending the theatre. You can get rush tickets to their mainstage productions for far less. The neXtstage (were we saw the production) is supposed to be the “hip, young, edgy” theatre. That being said the plays they choose are tame (and typically boring) and the average age of the audience was 50 at best. They don’t seem to have the guts or the wherewithal to stage any stuff by famous playwrights whose work they wouldn’t put up on their main stage due to content. Sigh… ok, I covet their resources and facilities. We (being the Exact) could just do a better job with running it (or at least in my twisted mind I think we could).
