Let me tell you about the time I laughed so hard that I actually cried…
This was a while ago, before I finished my college education at Santa Cruz. During one of my breaks, I was down in San Diego with my family and we decided to go to a theater production where a friend of my brother’s was acting. The play was called Noises Off and it was being held at a community theater in Old Town. I had no idea what to expect, so I sat down and prepared myself for anything.
I could not have prepared myself for this.
The play was hysterical! I think I actually had some of my neighbors complaining because I was laughing throughout the entire third act. The basic premise was that the people in the play… were putting on a play. Each act showed a different aspect: the first was a disastrous rehearsal, the second took place backstage during opening night, and the third showed a weary and broken cast going through the motions with everything going wrong around them.
