I'm the seagull. No, that's not it. I'm an actress. That's it.

Today I went to see the Seagull with my father. It was the closing performance and it was wonderful. I mean, it was still Chekhov... but it was still wonderful. I'm mostly kidding, but it really didn't drag much and I loved the moments of self-referential humor. The actors were amazing, especially the ladies (Kristin Scott Thomas, Zoe Kazan, and Carey Mulligan) though I must say Peter Sarsgaard (of Garden State, etc) dragged it down for me a bit, but I think it was not just his acting but by virtue of the character as well. But anyway, anyway, this is not a theatre review site (though if you haven't figured it out yet, I'm pretty big into theatre- it's my major after all) and I have my old high school crew coming over within minutes for a good old fashioned sleepover, complete with sushi eating, baking and incredibly mature movies. haha. So let me cut to the chase.

black flower pinned on white ribbon as headband}

This last picture shows off the flower in my hair and the pretty awesome sequins and collar on the cardigan the best. Something about going to the theatre lately has made me want to wear mildly extravagant things on my head. hmm...

Anyway, I must run and this may be my last post for a week or so as I am off to Switzerland tomorrow evening! But we shall see... and hopefully I have some funny snowboarding pictures and other things to share when I return.



  1. I just come to discover your blog from the comment you let on La mechante's blog. The Seagull seems to be wonderfull, and you were totally right to wear your very nice sequined cardigan and your big flower. I really like to dress up for nice occasion, such as an evening on Broadway!

  2. that headband flower is so fab!
    Hope Broadways will survive the recession...Happy Holidays dear!

  3. thanks so much for stopping by and commenting you both :)

    I do think it's fun to dress up just a bit for the theater, although these days it would be fine to wear almost anything you like.

    I do hope Broadway keeps trucking as well--in some ways I think it will as people like to go to the theater to cheer up/escape (both Jersey Boys and The Seagull played to almost full houses though it was the Seagull's closing performance). There have also been a lot of discount offers, etc, lately to keep people coming though a lot of shows are still closing. I hope I will see a few more in between my return to New York on Monday and when I go back up to school on January 8th!

  4. Just found this today, much enjoyed reading it.
    Pictures were very pretty, you truly are the seagull. :)
