So some of you probably saw my tumblr post on this, but this
entry is for non-tumblr people, and also to add a little more description since I have more room here *stretches in the blank space* to further flesh out the experience. No pressure to comment here but I thought you might be happy to live vicariously through me at the very least!
Stephen Rea last night after his performance in A Particle of Dread
, and brought him two headshots, intending for him to choose which one he preferred to sign. High res of the below shots here
. He signed both.
I was very pleased. Hell I was near-squeeeeing with delight. Next stop, frame store, going to frame them both up and hang one at home, and one in the office! Been at this job for a few months now, it's time to start decorating my office. Tastefully, of course.
Briefly, A Particle of Dread is a play in which Monsieur Rea plays Oedipus, in variations. It's very intense, and very murderous (and, side-topic: the man who plays his father was drop-dead gorgeous). We had 2nd row seats and let me tell you, Rea's characters were dynamic and went through a spectrum of emotions... such feels to experience that just a few feet away. ( I'm putting this behind a cut to keep the post a manageable height )
