In an effort to be “well rounded,” we went to a performance of “Exit Laughing” at the Whitefish Theater. I was pretty nervous about dragging Doug out there…he didn’t go to as much theater as I did growing up, and he has a pretty low tolerance for bad performances.
We went to the “preview” show, so the tickets were 1/2 off; I thought that might help take the sting out a bit if the performance was not good, or if he hated it.
Here is why I thought he might hate it – I read that the show was a cross between Golden Girls and Steel Magnolias. The premise of the show is one of the (older) ladies in a bridge 4-some dies, and the remaining three are dealing with it.
The theater was pretty cute – they call it “cabaret” seating – so there were little tables. You could also purchase drinks and little snacks to bring in, too. I will admit, I sneaked in a little something something in my purse to mix with our coke and take the edge off. I really like the table seating – even though it was us I thought it made it a little more fun than sitting in traditional rows.
The play was actually quite entertaining. There were some slow parts, of course, but there also were quite a few hilarious laugh out loud moments, and some very good one liners. I’m glad that we went to see it!
