Drinks for Humans
Last Sunday night I went to see the Tony Award winning play "The Humans" starring Richard Thomas. It was part of my Valley Broadway season of shows and it was performed at the Grady Gammage Auditorium, that fabulous Frank Lloyd Wright building in Tempe. The bar at Gammage always has some special drinks available based on the play being presented. This time it was these three. They fit the theme of the play beautifully but, I didn't try any of them.
The play itself was very good. It was a family drama with all kinds of modern day family issues that I'm sure are familiar to all of us. The set (above) was based on a two-story apartment in a rather run-down apartment building in New York City. It's rare for the Valley Broadway series of plays to have a simple play in the series. Usually every play in the series is a musical. I enjoyed the change.
