My first Sam Shepard play was called Operation Sidewinder in New York and featured cool music by the Holy Modal Rounders. He has enjoyed an amazing career since then both writing and acting - I especially liked his role in Mud last year - but Fool for Love is one of his great plays. We are fortunate that Round House is taking it on and their artistic director, Ryan Rilette, is directing.
So for this, you get in line and then at 6:30 they sell tickets, 2 per person, for whatever you would like to pay. I would say the standard is $10 but it really is what you want, more (if you can generously afford) or less. It's a relatively big theater so usually everyone gets a seat. The play starts at 7:30.
We'll eat across the street at Booeymonger at about 6:40 when everyone gets their tickets.
FOOL FOR LOVE: From one of America’s most renowned playwrights comes this explosive tale of love, hate, and the dying myths of the Old West. May’s hiding out at a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert when Eddie, her longtime on-again/off-again lover, shows up. Dark secrets are revealed during a night of gripping jealousy, brutal betrayal, and the deepest kind of love.
