The Marriage of Bette and Boo

Hey everyone! How is your week going? Today I'm proud to talk about my roommate Sam and his last success an actor. He's been studying acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts for the past two years, and he's finally graduating. Last week I went to see him performing at his graduation show at his school.

Here are some pictures of the show:

The play is a dark comedy about a very peculiar family. The main characters, Bette and Boo, struggle to have a traditional family structure since they are unable to have as many children as they desire. I find this kind of humor very funny, and I think it is a great play by Christopher Durang.

Here's a video made by The Paideia School Acting Troupe who also did the same play. I found it funny how they describe the characters here:


Now, the performance my roommate and his school mates did was great. Not that I am biased or anything, but they all did a great show. Since we're roommates, I have been seeing him rehearse and heard him going over the script over and over again. It was fun to see the result of all that work. As I said, very proud of him!

These are Bette and Boo, played by Sam Centrella and Chrissy Usher.
If any of you is wondering about the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC, it's located at 120 Madison Avenue (there's actually another campus in LA.) If you want more information about it you can visit the website: http://www.aada.org.

Have a good one, and see you soon!
