After the memorial, I took in Fool For Love at Shadow Theatre across the road. It was a good production of a Sam Shepherd piece I had never seen before. I cannot really fault this production - well acted and directed and a great set. I didn't feel the intense sexual chemistry I think the script calls for, but I was probably not in the right mind set to be totally immersed in it. However, I was glad to see it as I have not seen much at Shadow in the last few years due to scheduling. I am enjoying the recent bout of one acts that theatres seem to be producing lately - Red, RACE, Albertine in Five Times and now Fool For Love. I like the structure of a one act and the uninterrupted arc that they have. I hope that this form becomes more prevalent in main stage seasons to come.
