Stitch, Bitch n' Die!
Where: Bryant Lake Bowl
Who: Kevin McLaughlin, Valerie Rigsbee, Laurie Salveson, Jen Scott, and Joseph Scrimshaw
My friend Beverly and I saw this very silly play together and we both brought our knitting, though once the lights went out all we could manage were our vodka tonics. It was the second-to-last night and the small theater at the Bryant Lake Bowl was totally sold out. Chris and Susan arrived early and got better seats than we did. Anyone who thinks that knitting is the pastime of little old ladies would have been surprised by the size and age(s) of the crowd, and the fact that it included both women and men. It's like when the Yarn Harlot comes to town and hundreds of people show up to see her. Stop knitting? Never. You'll have to pry my Addi Turbos out of my cold, dead hands.
