Here’s a throwback to our second to last New York trip. This one was another LONG day, and we all know how those really get to me. This time though neither show got me through the day. The stronger of the two in my opinion was Other Desert Cities. It was a simplistic set with not very many characters but it still had very many strong qualities to it. The best part about it was the acting; the emotion all the actors and actresses had was so realistic. I can’t imagine summoning that amount of anger and sadness for such a long period time when you don’t really have a reason to be either of those. At the same time that was what I did not enjoy about the show, it was so angry which is not my kind of subject matter.
The second show, Venus in Fur freaked me out from the time we first started talking about it. It was advertised as “90 minutes of good kinky fun” and that made me question what the heck we were going to see it! Although it did not turn out to be as scandalous as I imagined I still did not enjoy it at all. There were very few funny moments and I just found the plot kind of weird and strange. I was trying to like it but its repetition bored me :(
