The Receptionist, at MTC’s Stage I

The Video Room has moved to a location less than one hundred paces from home.

We have had the same seats at MTC’s Stage I for as long as I can remember. They’re in the back and on the side-aisle, and I love them, because there is nothing in front of my seat and I can stretch out my legs. I’ve become so accustomed to the perspective from this perch that, on the rare night when we have to exchange our subscription tickets, I find it disconcerting to watch the stage from anywhere else. There is also the secret advantage of being right on top of the rear exit. I have never been in a theatre that is better at making you forget that you’re in a basement.

The other night, I saw a play by Adam Bock for the first time. And I saw Jayne Houdyshell for the first time. I look forward to more of both. 

The Receptionist.
