I’m not really a theater girl. I remember my first day of college when my total stranger of a roommate (a theater major from Massachusetts) immediately asked me how many Broadway plays I’ve seen (me being from New York and all). My reply? “Uhhh, I don’t know maybe like two or three.” I just never really cared, in all honesty. HOWEVER, Judy Bloom’s Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret was one of my favorite books growing up so when my friend Dane told me that he wrote and directed a play loosely based on the novel, I HAD to see it. People, it is AMAZING. My friend Devon and I went (for only $20 a ticket, serious) and didn’t stop laughing the whole time. If I can say anything to attest to how great this play is, it’s this: Are You There God? It’s Me, Karen Carpenter made me almost miss being in middle school. ALMOST. And that says it all.
Check it out in Los Angeles, starting November 30th!
