A Photo a Week Challenge: Crowd

Crowd at the Globe

While in London, we caught a performance of The Comedy of Errors at the Globe Theatre. The show was sold out, but I was still surprised at how many people were willing to stand through the whole performance in the “groundling” area (our seats were under the covered area on the first level — amazing!). In most theaters in America, the groundling area is filled with seats and called “the orchestra section” and a seat there costs as much as in the first two rows of the balcony, known as the dress circle or lodge (depending on how posh-posh the theater is). If you’re willing to stand (albeit a few feet or sometimes merely inches away from the action on stage), the price of your ticket drops dramatically. However, this production was 2-1/2 hours long. Not for my feet. I snapped this photo during the interval (aka as intermission). The audience was well behaved and enthusiastic throughout the performance.

A Photo a Week: Fight! Fight! Fight!

Beatrice and Benedict from MAANSeveral years ago (more than I really want to admit), I was asked by some friends to take production stills for a local community theatre’s production of Much Ado About Nothing. I played the piano for the incidental music (this play could almost be consider a musical, Shakespeare put so many songs in it), and I had just purchased my very first DSLR camera. I love how the pictures turned out, and this week’s challenge entry is one of my favorites from the shoot. Beatrice and Benedict cannot woo sensibly nor easily, and you are never really sure at the end of the play if she will kiss him or punch his lights out, but it sure is fun to watch.
