So as some of you know, I went to see Sergio Di Zio in his play Dying City last night. It was a very intimitate location and the actors were close enough to touch (which, TBH I was a teeny bit intimidated by...I was like, 'Oh no! They can see me, too!' Yeah, I'm a little shy). But it was great seeing Sergio perform up close and personal and he was truly amazing. He plays identical twins, but they're two very different characters and it was incredible to see how easily he seemed to switch between them. He was really good and the play itself was thought-provoking. I was surprised at how much humour they were able to inject into it and it was a goiod thing they did, because there was a lot of sad as well. It was very hard not to cry sometimes, especially at the end.

After the show, Sergio, Lesley Faulkner (who plays Kelly) and director Peter Pasyk came back on stage for a Q&A session, which was really cool. A great way to gain a more insight and of course it was wonderful to see the actors as themselves ;o) Afterwards, they stayed and chatted with individual members of the audience. They were very approachable, but I, because of my accursed shyness, couldn't work up the nerve to say hi *FAIL!* :o( But I'm seeing it again on Thursday so maybe I'll be lucky enough that they'll decide to come out and chat with us again and maybe, hopefully, I'll manage to say hello then... 

Also, Sergio's brother was in the audience tonight! Sergio's definitely the younger sibling and I didn't think they looked a lot alike at all, but they do have the same chin ;o)

So anyway, go see the play if you get a chance and are able. It's totally worth it. They extended their run by a week, so I believe it's now playing till the 17th.   

In other news, my stocking over at [ profile] fandom_stocking is up! Exciting! Now I gotta go hunt for other people's stockings to fill :o) You know, I really wish I knew how to make icons, 'cause I'd love to make a few for people!
