LIGHT SHINING IN BUCKINGHAMSHIRE •
Preachers, sinners, slaves, and soldiers of England all play a role in this world of injustice and poverty of the 1600s. The army of God is recruiting the ones who have very little choice anyway. At this point it's between prostitution and starvation.  What will they choose?

THIS FLAT EARTH 🌍🎒🔫 •
A pre-teen girl demands of all the grownups in her life to fix everything... or else! They should fix all the bad things that happen to good people: the gun shootings in school, the fear and anxiety that follow, and the stupid rules about district-based school placement. •
🗨 Julie's speech towards the end of the play is priceless:
Did Noelle still have her band-aids on her bruises while lying in her coffin? Did her parents feel bad for paying so much for braces just for her teeth to not get straightened? Did someone have to pick a bra for her to wear in there? •

THE LUCKY ONES 🎶☮✌ •
An intimate invitation to hear the story of the unusual upbringing of Abigail Benson. Commune-like house with hippie parents and cousins that are like sisters and brothers. An independent school that was founded by her mother at their home. The first rule was "kindness". But at age 16 she already suspected that this was actually a very hurtful and abusive environment to be raised in. •
Reminds me of Kibbutz life and how taboo it was in Israeli society up until recently to talk about the child abuse and sexual abuse happening there. •
Bengson alternates between the narrator and her role as herself in this musical about dysfunctioning family. •
The music is mind-blowing, staging and choreography is such pleasure to look at. • •
💭 Interesting moment:
Two men talking about how one of them's baby daughter is allergic to formula. Can't recall many plays in which I saw two guys talking about parenting this way. Or at all.

IN THE BODY OF THE WORLD 💃🌎 So glad I got to see Eve Ensler before the show closes!

She makes you feel like she speaks directly to you even though there are 100 more people in the room (there are about 250 seats but there was a snow storm...), she actually thanked us for making it to her show on a snow day! •
I really liked the way the house lights are on between the acts, during her intro to each act. she looks her audience in the eyes, fearless and welcoming at the same time. •
There are some very graphic descriptions of what happens to women in war-zones. Underage girls, pregnant women, all women. She talks extensively about her cancer journey. How she and her mom had it at the same time. Only Eve survived and her mother didn't. she defeated cancer and started "city of joy", a healing center for women in Bukavu, Congo. •
🗨 FAVORITE QUOTES: •
⚪Re: the vagina monologues: "I sensed vaginas were important" •
⚪"the most handsome doctor comes in to examine my ass and I'm thinking, that's it, this is what the end looks like" •
⚪"we took tons of valium to calm my nerves" •
⚪"day 4 of chemo: one cannot underestimate the importance of pot" •
🗨 most clapped for 👏👏👏 •
⚪"hysteria - a word designed to make women not know what we know" •

ADMISSIONS 🏃🎓
•
The head of Admissions in a prestiges Vermont high school is dedicated to diversity in her school. But what if the catalog had only people of color in it? is that "too much"? or what if her son decided to give the money they had saved for him to go to Ivy League in order to give a scholarship to a less fortunate student?
•
Let me just say that the Republican sitting two rows above me had hard time with the joke that got most applause and clapps...
•
🗨 FAVORTIE QUOTES:
⚪"Ruwandan applicants check the Black box, same as their killers! I bet they wouldn't want to do that, at least for a while, right?" •
⚪"70 years ago my grandfather couldn't get into Ivy League because they didn't want Jews, now they found a different way to keep Jews out - they turned us all white"
•
⚪"what's the deal with our son being a Jew now? we didn't agree to that"
•
⚪-"why Yale?"
-"because of Mystic Pizza"
•
⚪"we regret to inform you! I don't think institutions can have feelings, that's not how it works"
,,•
⚪"So you didn't get into Yale, you'll go to Dartmouth or Duke and you'll be fine! how do I know? because you're a white guy with no Down Syndrome!"
•
⚪"I admire the way you criss-cross the country: Boston, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New York..."

THREE TALL WOMEN 🚀🚀🚀
•
The set is a fourth character in the play. When we get to the 2nd act the depth of the stage is revealed, it is a duplicate of the stage we've seen before, there is a mirror covering the entire back wall which makes us see the stage 4 times. Absolutely stunning

THW FALL 📚👫👬👭📚 •
"I heard people saying 'we have to replace it with Mandela statue' and I'm saying no. Enough. We have enough statues of men. We have enough men". At this point the audience at St. Ann's couldn't contain themselves and clapped so hard that the actress had to wait before she could resume her speech. •
Another speech that got claps was by a non-binary student talking about sic-privilege 👏
•
THE FALL is about the protest of the black students of UCT (University of Cape Town) against discrimination in academic positions and in curriculum. 
They asked the white students to be their human shield during the rallies. "I heard a cop saying to a white girl standing at the front that they didn't want to hurt her." •
The humiliating financial aid process: "you have to sit there all day pouring all your family's shame so that they can finally say 'congratulations, you are poor enough'." •
