my friend isabelle, who takes beautiful photos and happens to be featured in the upcoming vanity fair... just a little brag for a friend... (also her husband is a musician on tour with "the justin bieber of the united kingdom" a description which never fails to make me happy), texted me on tuesday afternoon to see if i'd be free that night to see THE HEIRESS with her. comped tickets to see a golden globe winner and THE matthew crawley!
the stars aligned and brandon was able to make it home early that night, so i made it to the theatre just in time to take my seat before the lights dimmed. can i just say, living in walking distance of the theatre district is straight up magic.
i didn't know anything about the play other than who would be performing that night, so i was completely unprepared for how much i would love it. it is a gorgeously done one-set show. very sad but also strangely empowering. all the stage effects were subtle and beautiful, i was captivated the entire time. the house is small and very intimate, so it was easy to get lost in the story and the acting. as much as i love musical theatre i don't actually always like sitting through musical theatre. but i've never not loved sitting through a play. so if you come to town and hope to see something on broadway, don't forget the plays!
on my way out of there i happened to bump into this guy. and for those of you who are caught up to the end of downton season three already, don't worry. i told him on behalf of all of us how freaking wrong that christmas special was. i mean, i'm still like, COME ONNNNNNNN.
by the way. he's quite tall.
thank you isabelle for thinking of me and bringing me along!
and hey don't i look JUST LIKE lady mary?
