I went to a fundraising event for work today, and:
I watched a woman act out a book.
When I heard this was the entertainment bit on the docket, I was less than enthused. I enjoy theater and film, but this seemed like it had high potential to be lame.
On the contrary, it was amazing. I was entertained the entire time and it was a blast to watch. The name of the performer was Barbara Rinella. Apparently she is well known for her work on the North Shore of Chicago, but since she hasn’t been a part of any terrible reality TV nor has she appeared in US Weekly, I hadn’t heard of her. She acted out this book and in the process of watching her, I learned a lot about Frank Lloyd Wright. Which was nice.
