Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme

The Strollers production of Frank McGuinness’ “Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme” opened last Thursday. Two seats shy of sold out. I remembered to look for reviews today, and I found Michael James writing about it in the Capital Times.

Two comments from me:

1. Mr. James, I think you missed part two, where all the soldiers were meeting each other.

2. It’s just a little cigarette smoke, not mustard gas. For those of you not in the Madison area, Madison banned smoking in bars last year, and since then it’s been an inquisition against anybody who smokes. I like smoking cigars, so I fall in this category. Did you know that the mere sight of smoke causes eye cancer?

It’s a good show. Go see it.
