Oh, that silly pied piper!!! The Broadway play, “Jerusalem” is in many ways a modern retelling of the classic tale, but with a grim conclusion. This play was lights out brilliant from the first act, all the way through the end of the play!!! This is a story of an eccentric, who provides the children of his London town with drugs and alcohol, and throws parties in his caravan in the woods. You don’t see the mature growth of the character. He is still the same guy at the end of the play, but he under goes a change from comic jokester and a charming character, to his real form…a sad loser who is not looking to grow up, and is always more focused on achieving his next high and drink then moving forward with his life and possible being there for his son.
Mark Rylance’s portrayal of this character was unreal!!! The only regrets i had about this play was that it eventually ended, because i would have enjoyed sitting the rest of the night watching it!!! It is only in run until August 21, but i think you need to see it as soon as possible!!! Check our site to find out how to obtain tickets at Student Rush prices.
Signing off for StudentRush.org, this is Alex, reminding you that sometimes, you have to spend a little bit of money to stop and enjoy the culture!!!
3 and a half hours…that is how long it took me to get into the art exhibit for the late fashion designer, Alexander McQueen. My verdict…nothing is worth a 3 and a half hour wait. Whether it be ice cream in the park, or for the new Harry Potter movie…nothing!!! However, the show was mind-numbingly amazing. It was a welcomed trip to the dark side of fashion. This exhibit cradled and comforted you, while also leading you out of your comfort zone. This exhibit didn’t hold anything back, and forced you to look at the beauty, horror and the power of the human form and psyche.
This exhibit displayed how powerful clothing could be if done within the rules, but also allows room to express oneself. This was a true artist at his work. His exhibition was really a window to the darkest side of his expression. Even though this show was amazing, it was also incredibly crowded. It didn’t dampen the mood for the evening, but it could and should have been handled better by THE MET. It was the final day, and it was insanely crowded, but it was also very warm inside the museum. THE MET needs to step up to the plate better next time they have another exhibit.
This exhibition was truly a fitting tribute to the memory of Alexander McQueen. I don’t have any pictures, but i’m pretty sure some of the people on tumblr do…do a quick search…i’m telling you, it’s worth it!!!
