Last night I witnessed the production, "Lonely Planet" at The Weekend Theater. It washed over me and swept through all the hues of my emotional spectrum.
It was gripping.
I wanted to leave the theatre and not talk to anyone afterwards. I needed to be with my thoughts. I read through the play a few times with Jay, but seeing it live and hearing the dialogue, the monologues, the story and watching my dear friends Duane and Jay act so sincerely was just...
a spiritual experience.
I love the play and think that it is graceful, witty, heartfelt, and unique. I love live theatre and how it can change you in a matter of a few lines. "Lonely Planet" resonated with me on a number of levels and I am still processing the performance.
Thanks to Jay, Duane, Jamie, all those involved with the production, and to Mr. Dietz for writing a commanding play that pays tribute to lives lost and a friendship that can endure these tragedies.
Much love to all of you,
