A Behanding In Spokane

 Man, when I get back on the blogging wagon, I really let it loose!  This will be my last post for today *tears* - but don't fret, I will (hopefully) continue to document my list.

So, Friday night (Feb 27th) we went to see A Behanding in Spokane, a play by Martin McDonagh.  

I was driving to an appointment in Times Square the other day, when I saw Christopher Walken's name on a marquee.  Well let me tell you, I LOVE me some Christopher Walken.  I immediately called Stephen, well, maybe I texted him - any way, doesn't matter.  I got a hold of Stephen, who googled the play.

Turns out the play is only a 16-week limited engagement!  We hopped right on those tickets (translation: bought in a hurry) in the new found spirit of getting things done in this city.

Because I'm a little wordy, I have taken the summary off the official website:

Martin McDonagh's first American-set play—the outrageously funny A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE—has arrived on Broadway in a star-studded, 90-minute world premiere production.
Carmichael (Christopher Walken) has been searching for his missing left hand for almost half a century. Enter two bickering lovebirds (Anthony Mackie and Zoe Kazan) with a hand to sell, and a hotel clerk (Sam Rockwell) with an aversion to gunfire, and we're set for a hilarious rollercoaster of love, hate, desperation and hope.

Besides Christopher Walken, we got to enjoy the immense talent of Sam Rockwell, Anthony Mackie, and Zoe Kazan.  True fabulousness.
