I love to sit around and just watch movies all day. I really do! However, I also enjoy hitting the town. This summer I plan on staying busy. One way I will is by attending plays. I love theatrical performances! Last month I went to a play with my love at Mud Creek Players. The play was entitled Biloxi Blues by Neil Simon. Much like the original movie, this play was funny and took the audience to a difficult time during World War II. I also loved how they changed something in the play that the movie didn’t… injustice. Afterwards I met the amazing cast as well.
The director was fully aware of the U.S. military’s rules of segregation during World War II, which prevented men of color from living among their white counterparts. Knowing this he corrected that historical injustice by adding an African American actor to the production. Awesome right? The play was about Eugene Morris Jerome (on my left in the first photo) and his fellow recruits learning to cope with each other and a mentally unstable drill instructor, while learning about life and love. I for one enjoyed it!
I also thought it was fitting for me, since my love just left for basic training this week. Peek at some photos here, of Erik and I during his departure. Click here for more productions to air at Mud Creek Players.
