So. I got free tickets to see a production of Twelfth Night through work. I went with a coworker and it was a lovely performance. Very stylized and symbolic and wonderful.

But the best part is this:

Antonio, who rescues Sebastian - I've always found their relationship to be a bit slashy. I dismissed it, though, because I tend to see slashy things everywhere, really.

Apparently the Director of this performance agreed with me. OMG. It was beautiful and tragic, which really contrasted well with the lightness of everything else. Antonio is so utterly in love with Sebastian. At the end, Sebastian goes over to Antonio, and Antonio pushes him away with this heartbroken look, and then lies on the beach looking so forlorn as everyone else pairs off. And the lights go out, except for on Antonio's face. It's the last thing we see.

I practically started crying/jumping up and down. It was such a great way to end the show, and such a powerful image. I just wanted to cuddle him. GAH.

So, yeah, that made my day. :)
