Timon of Athens @ the Globe

Pj and I, with our new roommate Tristan headed to the globe to check out one of shakespeare’s later plays “Timon of Athens.” It was my first time at the globe and I was not disappointed.  Tix were only £5 – we were groundlings.  Which meant we got to stand for the whole thing, which was fantastic.  Like being in a moshpit for theatre.  Also interesting, was that the director and set designer created an ‘aviary’ for the piece.  To facilitate the characters in the play which acted as vultures upon the main character Timon.  It was supposedly inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece “The Birds”.  It wasn’t pj’s favorite, but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  Live music as well which is always appreciated.
