Acting is hard. The ability to lay yourself bare night after night, emotionally (and sometimes physically) is something that does not come easily to most people. Add into that the ability to react honestly to your acting partners, even though you may know their lines better than they do. Then, there is the difficult matter of comic timing. When all of these things click, it makes for an amazing night of theatre and you feel lucky to be part of it. You have the opportunity to experience this now, if you go to see SEX WITH STRANGERS at the Human Race Theatre Company.

Going into the Mathile Theatre on Saturday night, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I am not overly familiar with The Who's music but I do remember that my older brother had a copy of the Tommy album back in the 70's. I also think that I may have actually played pinball on a Tommy machine. Consequently, my mind was a pretty clean slate and I was ready to enjoy the evening.BWW Preview: Dayton Theatre Warms You Up in January January 2, 2018
