We saw Please Give on Wednesday night at the Michigan Theater.
It is quirky, funny, tough, and very, very New York. Indeed, it may secretly be part of a marketing campaign to keep nice people from moving there. One could think of it as a bit of a meditation on optimism versus pessimism or, not quite the same, as worrying or not worrying and just being happy.
I think we liked it better than the New York Times did.
I am also, again, puzzled by the "R" rating.
Who was my favorite student this term?
