Theater 2011 2010

去百老汇看戏是个费钱的事儿,订票定时间也是个费精力的事儿,所以我试图控制在一个月一部之类。可是我就是喜欢啊!所以这个限额不遵守也罢。。。在某种程度上,戏剧和电影差不多,都是一个逃脱现实世界过一段别样生活的出口,一个激活一些容易被麻痹的情感的机会。只是现场的戏剧拥有一种不可重复性,具备天然的紧迫感,看不到错过的遗憾也更大。过去一年比较懒,加上微博盛行,短暂的冲动都被释放出去,少了沉淀后的长文。这样下去觉得好多东西都会很快消逝,我既然如此热爱看戏,趁总结了电影,也把这个总结一下吧。不过好多戏下档就下档了错过就错过了,所以也不算推荐,主要也就是我个人存个档吧。

儿童节快乐,hooray!

The Moldy Peaches – Lucky Number Nine

Lucky Number Nine

Indie boys are neurotic
Makes my eyes bleed
Tight black pants exotic
Some loving is what I need

Hey, I’m starting to feel okay
Lucky number nine, hooray

Sepia on the staircase
Mirror in the back of my brain
Makes things, her pants feel great
I used to like to complain

But
Hey, I’m starting to feel okay
Lucky number nine, hooray

Bloody Mary, mother of God
Grandpa’s on the hobbyhorse again
Dampen, broken pants chafing
I’m running out of ethnic friends

But
Hey, I’m starting to feel okay
Lucky number nine, hooray

Tizzy Bac – 我们

Tizzy Bac – 我们

我们

我们哭 开始就明了 真的世界不欢迎不需要天真的笑
我们活 努力学撒娇 因为爱不会平白无故就能得到

我们坏 轻易就伤害 反正总得有人必须牺牲 而我不要
我们叫 希望有人听到 复诵总有一天都会变好 却等不到
而你 会不会让一切更改 而我 还能不能再重来
  
我们要 从来不放掉 以为抓住了星星才最好 却拿不了
我们疯 四处慌乱在寻找 自己存在的证明却忘了 心就在跳

我们爱 就像烈日灼身般 因为我们都明白这一切 总会消散
我们孤单 最后的归属是黑暗 只敢偷偷躲藏在黑夜里 多么不堪
而你 会不会让一切更改 而我 还能不能再重来
  
God please don’t let me down
God please don’t let me down
God won’t you let me down
God please don’t let me down

还有多少甜美曾经必须坠落 我们还有没有权利编织梦
还要多长时间恒切忍耐等候 我们能不能终在爱里自由

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

上周末又去看了出百老汇音乐剧,Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson。这戏之前是在 Off-Broadway 小剧场,显然很成功,于是这个秋天转战 Broadway 大剧场。Andrew Jackson 是美国第七任总统,本人就很富争议很传奇,推行平民主义,但同时又支持黑奴制和移除印第安人。当然这部剧不是历史正剧,而是真把 Jackson 搞成一 rock star,且既反讽又搞笑死,用编剧的话说,是 funny political theater。快200年前的政治原来真和现在还没那么大差别,加上正好美国中期选举,气氛很是契合。看之前我其实莫名觉得不会喜欢,结果看完就觉得相当不错,尤其头一次转场华盛顿时,乐死个人。演员都演得超级卖力,我其实觉得这部剧的风格更适合小剧场,大剧场总就容易有冷的危险,但每一个演员从头至尾充满热情的表演就愣是彻底把感觉撑了起来。反正看来小剧场也有很多优秀剧,下次去找个 Off-Broadway的来看。下面奉上开场曲 Populism Yea Yea,很充分体现此剧的讽刺又搞笑的风格哪。当然我其实也很想放男主角超用力大唱 “Life sucks, and my life sucks in particular” 那首来着,哈哈。

Populism Yea Yea

Populism Yea Yea

Why wouldn’t you ever go out with me in school?
You always went out with those guys,
Who thought they were so cool.
But I was just nobody to you, nobody to you, nobody to you.

But it’s the early nineteenth century,
And we’re gonna take this country back.
For people like us who don’t just think about things,
People who make things happen.
Sometimes with guns, sometimes with speeches too.
And also other things.

1, 2, 3, 4
Populism, yea yea. Populism, yea yea.
Populism, yea yea. Populism, yea yea.
This is the age of, this is the age of, this is the age of Jackson.

Take a stand against the elite.
They don’t care anything for us.
And we will eat sweet democracy,
And let them eat our dust, eat our dust, eat our dust.

Cause it’s the early nineteenth century.
We’ll take the land back from the Indians.
We’ll take the land back from the French and Spanish,
And other people in other European countries.
And other countries too,
And also other places.
I’m pretty sure it’s our land anyway.

Populism, yea yea. Populism, yea yea.
Populism, yea yea. Populism, yea yea.
This is the age of Jackson, the age of Jackson
The age of Jackson, the age of Jackson
The age of, this is the age of Jackson.

Of Montreal @ Terminal 5

Of Montreal @ Terminal 5
Of Montreal @ Terminal 5

一周半前的事了,一直都没贴。18号的时候跑去听了俺最爱的小乐队 Of Montreal 在纽约的演出,地点在 Terminal 5。原来以为是个类似酒吧的地方,没想到地方很大,基本就是个大迪厅。。。离开始还半个小时,舞台下就已经挤满人,跟着随便放的音乐乱 high。开场的 Janelle Monáe 果然是不错的,小姑娘很有性格也能镇的住场子,虽然好听的歌就那一两首吧,但就搞得气氛很热烈,我站在二楼都觉得好像很 high。在 Of Montreal 出场前我转战一楼,加入舞台下的人群中,混杂着些许大麻味道。之前在 Dartmouth 时看到过他们一场演出,所以我知道他们肯定是不缺花样儿的。果然,主唱 Kevin Barnes 一如既往的贱加小尴尬,各种乱七八糟的道具,让人真是听的看的很高兴啊。旁边有一位大哥,整场都很 high,先在我们前面乱晃遮挡视线,然后跑到我们后面解开衬衫和他女友一砣人热舞,并同时放声歌唱,让人惊讶的是他唱得居然还非常好。演唱会听的很开心,票价也才不到$30,看来这种表演是周末休闲的好去处啊。下面附一段手机拍的 Hydra Fancies 片段,Kevin 同学先骑大马,然后小尴尬的自己乱扭了一会儿,最后再挥挥翅膀 @_@。另外,现场可是要比录像里收到的声音吵闹的多的多了。
