Since finishing The Hunger Games this weekend, I was very anxious to see the live-action version on Sunday.
This is how I got hooked on Harry Potter – completed the first book and went to the movie hours after. It’s nuts seeing everything I’ve imagined come to life before me immediately. (Dude, we’ll be sipping on Butterbeer in exactly one week!!!)
…then we hit the theater!
Not surprisingly, we were hungry when we got back at 3pm.
…more chocolate n peanut butter followed:
Have heard the next two books in the trilogy aren’t as good but I’m still going to read them. (Word-of-mouth for the movie was pretty mixed too, so I was pleasantly surprised that I loved it.)
In the evening we went to the theater again – this time, a live show.
Our Wesleyan friends John, Neil, and Jordan were all involved in this production, and definitely did our alma mater proud. The play runs through May 13th and you can get discounted tickets through Goldstar. A portion of the proceeds helps to fund The Mechanical Theatre Group’s Outreach Program, bringing theatre into school communities where arts funding has been cut.
