Coming, Aphrodite

I saw a wonderful play this afternoon at La Mama Annex. Coming, Aphrodite is a pretty simple, straightforward love story that was joyfully made into a musical. The score (by Mark Ettinger) was rather incredible, vaudevillian and hip. The actors were very talented and I loved the set and the whole production. One of my favorite performances was by the actor who played the dog, and they made a very smart decision to clothe him as a somewhat fastidious looking person, rather that costume him as a dog. The singing was great and my favorite part overall was definitely the music.

Today was rather overcast and gloomy, and it was such a refreshing, happy way to spend the day.
