Play time: FBRB

I took Maiya to see a play on Saturday. It was "Frog Belly Rat Bone" produced by Rogue Artists Ensemble at the Ivy Substation, home of The Actor's Gang in Culver City. It was a last minute decision--I had mentioned the possibility to Maiya earlier that morning, but before making a promise, wanted to see whether she'd be awake/not so cranky (etc.) after shoe shopping (again) and a lunch date. As we were heading home, she said, "Hey are we going to see a play?" The timing was right, we were about a mile away and it was due to start in 15 minutes. The story, puppetry, set and costume design was terrific. The play was based on a book with the same name, about friendship, treasure hunting, and planting seeds in "Cementland." Maiya enjoyed it, and it was a nice way to spend the afternoon... here are some photos off my cell phone.
Before the showStar struck: Meeting "Pirate Boy"--one of the puppets in the cast after the show.
