Tonight, Hairy, James, and I went to eat sushi and watch Jurassic Park Live performed by the Old Murder House Theatre. If you visit their site, you can see snippets from their other shows like RoboCop Live and Aliens…On Ice!
I was a little hesitant about the whole thing because my tolerance for theatre/musical theatre is quite low, but it was really quite funny, with great attention to detail on a low budget.
In Oakland, they performed at Children’s Fairyland, which looked really cute in and of itself! It was pretty spooky getting lost in the dark there at night, though, when I had to sneak off to find the bathroom!
I didn’t take a lot of photos, but here’s a sneak. Jurassic Park Live only has three more shows left of their tour, in L.A., Dallas, and Austin. If you go, I suggest trying to watch Jurassic Park really quick first, to refresh your memory and pick up on the funny references during the show!
big p.s.: this show is not intended for kids, even though we saw it at Fairyland! I think what I liked about it was that it reminded me of little kids playing dress up, and of the cardboard sets and home movies I used to make with my little brother, but it was just grown ups having fun. I support that!
