One thought on “Episode 46: Mother Courage

  1. So glad you’re back!

    I did not end up seeing any shows over the Christmas holiday. No real excuse. I was just feeling lazy. I did end up seeing Mother Courage though (not around Christmas) before all of this drama unfolded. It was not a very good production. Tonya Pinkins was by far the best thing about it. She is just a remarkable actress. The rest of the cast as rather uneven and the production was very flawed and quite dull. Forget the Congo. They failed at capturing even “vague Africa.” And with Duncan Sheik music? No.
