Tonight was the next round of our East Bay Lair Girls Book Club/Red Sonkers. Liz hosted this month and chose the play Romeo & Juliet. Liz has been involved in theater since college and had a heavy hand in the production at Cal Shakes this season. Our mission was to read the play and come to the performance in Orinda…tonight was the night. What a wonderful play! I do remember reading Shakespeare in high school and not much caring for it, but there is something about seeing live theater that is just so spectacular, especially when performed wonderfully! Another incentive for attending this production was that another East Bay LAir Girl (Sarah Nealis) played the role of Juliet…AMAZING! I have such superbly talented friends that I am in constant awe.
Liz, thanks for a wonderfully thoughtful evening! The Genova sammies were fantastic and despite the foggy weather the performance was a hit! Looking forward to the next book!
