Last Sunday I decided to go to the matinee of Company on the big screen, thinking that would be the last chance to see it. I was therefore moderately annoyed when I discovered there will be another round of screenings this weekend. If I’d known that on Sunday, I wouldn’t have gone that day – and probably would not have encountered the screening mishap at the end of the show.
This does remind me of the choices that the arts patron must make, especially in the theatre world where runs are not constant and ultimately finite. I’m making similar decisions with my time this weekend and intending to see two plays that close on Sunday.
