Actor’s Theatre: The Book Club Play
Every now and then we get extra lucky and find a place that blows our expectations out of the water for an unusual and fun date night. Last Friday we visited a new place, Actor’s Theatre of Phoenix for the first time. We got our fancy on.
The lovely Lydia of Photography Hill provided the two pics above and the one below. We felt so natural with her when Prom joke came up she was like, yep, let’s do this!
Jacob told me after this was the best play we’ve attended in his opinion. He couldn’t get over how much he laughed, even with some literary humor only book nerds and English majors may get.
Both our favorite parts were the asides actors had in between scenes. One person would change into a new character and give a monologue about the importance of books from a different perspective. One was a retired librarian, one a publicist, etc. Our favorite was Sam, the Walmart Stock Manager who cracked us up with the references to Chicken Soup for the Soul and its importance at Walmart. So clever, so true!
We felt lucky to get to attend this event with friends- Jesse and Brittany, and Kayla and her husband Aaron are all amazing people and super fun to hang out with. Not to mention they style blog, so yeah, had a little pressure to up my game with an Audrey Hepburn look.
I think my favorite thing is I felt like I’d read a book, and left ready to share thoughts on the play. I caught this sign- “Talk-Provoking Theater” on the way in and out, and I couldn’t agree more. Actor’s Theatre plays are the kind of plays you want to go grab dinner or drinks with friends after and discuss.
Which is what we did! Cibo treated us right with some of the best pizza in Phoenix.
And of course some of the best Nutella banana crepes too!
Disclosure: I was provided tickets to Actor’s Theatre, but the opinions and amazing experience conveyed are 100% mine!

Wow! This sounds like a great play. Now I just have to convince my husband HE will enjoy it, too. The plot sounds perfect for us, but I am not sure how he feels about live theater. ; ) Thanks for sharing an awesome opportunity!
