Welcome back! How did it get to be Friday again?
This week's book is Acting Lessons by Kathryn R. Blake.
This book follows the production of Kiss Me Kate for a college summer stock and it was fun to learn so much about the inner workings of a theatrical production. I'm guessing that Kathryn R. Blake has some experience in that regard and she used it well.
Here are some questions, but as always, feel free to jump in with your own thoughts.
Was his anger justified? Or was Kate a bit at fault for not talking to him about it in the first place?
2. During their separations, Kate spent a fair amount of time with a man named Thomas. I thought he was pretty high handed when he called the police and had Peter arrested, but otherwise, I liked him. Was anyone else just a little sorry that Kate didn't choose him?
3. Did anyone else have a sudden urge to go see a play after reading this? It sure made the theater sound exciting.
4. Peter admitted that he didn't tell Kate about the spanking scene in the play before she agreed to do the show because he was afraid she wouldn't agree. Was Kate's anger justified or should she have read the script before she agreed to do the show?
5. I bet many of you were in a play in high school or college or even your first grade class production of something. Care to share what you remember about it?
