I got a chance to see "Jerusalem" too - I just blew a ton of cash on a NYC Arts Tour through my college, saw "Warhorse", "The Motherf*cker with the Hat", "Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo", "Peter & Wendy", "The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Captialism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures" (Tony Kushner's new play in development), "Jerusalem", and "The Lion King". It was my first time seeing theatre in a big city and it was quite the heady experience. We also got to go backstage on "The Lion King", and our class got to have a private talk with Oskar Eustis (!) in Central Park who took us us to see a rehersal in process at the Delacourt, because my theatre professor is awesome and has connections. Though I think I made Mr. Eustis uncomfortable because I asked him a question about the similarities in "The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide..." and Mr. Eustis's personal life, i.e. if Kushner was drawing on that for inspiration.       

I was thinking about seeing "Acradia" as well, being that it's one of my favorite scripts, but deterred by reviews that called the production miscast and misguided, so I decided to see "Bengal Tiger" instead but was underwhelmed. "Jerusalem" and "The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide..." were definetly the stand-outs on the trip and the hype surrounding Rylance is very much justified.

[!]JERUSALEM SPOILER[!]

So at the end of "Jerusalem", the rumbling, what do you think - was it the giants or the bulldozer?
