An unexpected date night, Mr. Rios and I headed out to the
Imago Theater last Saturday to see a play called "Simple People". I had somehow lucked into two free tickets through work, and further fortune smiled upon us when our child was invited to an overnight birthday party. A miracle.!
The play was great. The acting was convincing and touching and inspired. It was a poignant and surprisingly lyrical look at homelessness starring some very damaged but insistently optimistic
characters. There is music throughout the play and lots of singing! I loved it.
I also loved the Imago theater itself. A big, elegant brick building near E. Burnside with a pretty lobby/ticket area and a medium-sized stage. The seats had pretty scrolling on the ends.
Note to self: go to plays more often.
