Around the World in 80 Days at The Matrix Theatre
Well look what’s happening in my backyard: Lost Dog Productions is producing Around the World in 80 Days at the Matrix Theatre in Hollywood, California.
I went to the opening the other with an old friend of mine from university and had loads of fun. It was the first time I had ever been to the Matrix Theatre. It’s a cute theatre. Wide. A very wide stage. You could get all of the Rockettes on stage in a line and still have room to spare.
Everybody loves an elephant.
I sometimes try to avoid reviews but with social media it’s hard to completely avoid them. Thankfully the reviews so far have been very good. (And if there are any bad ones I hope I don’t see them).
