Chris discovered the Asperger's Are Us comedy troupe through a friend that knows one of the members. All four members of the group have Asperger's Syndrome. Their style of comedy is unique and went over my head a few times, but Chris and I certainly enjoyed the show. It was fantastic to see these individuals doing exactly what they love successfully! The group is touring the US currently and even had a documentary film about them released at Austin's SXSW Film Festival in March - definitely worth checking them out!
Shuffle Along was my date night pick this month. Actually, it became a bit of a group date when the alumni coordinator at my alma mater reached out to NYC area alumni to get a group together to go see this star studded show since one of our own - JC Montgomery - was part of the cast! Chris really loved the story and finding out more about the historical elements portrayed in this true Broadway tale. I enjoyed the tap dancing and comical scenes, but had a bit of trouble following the story line at various points throughout. It would have helped me to know a tad more about the show before we saw it, but the cast was amazing. I was SO impressed that Audra McDonald was moving and shaking and tapping so well while visibly pregnant - truly phenomenal!
What has been your most fun summer date this year?
