Confederacy of Dunces is a book a lot of people say "Either you love it or you hate it". I am in love category - I think it hilarious and just all around good stuff. Book-It repertory theater in Seattle has put together a theater production of it. My hubbie and I went to see it last night and we were not disappointed. They got all the highlights in there and even though it was a three hour production I only looked at my watch in the last 10 minutes.
I highly recommend this as a great night out. If you sign up on Book-It's twitter page they do announcements for last minute deals as normally a ticket will run you $30. Or if you are under 30 $20.00!
Here is a bit about the play from the site:
Toole’s Pulitzer Prize-winning cult classic is a masterpiece of the southern literary canon. In this grand tragicomic farce our hero—of epic proportions—is the slothful Ignatius J. Reilly: writer, cultural critic, bastion of morality, advocate for the disenfranchised, eater of hot dogs, and nemesis of industry. His grudging ventures into the working world to support his despairing mother bring him face to face with a kaleidoscopic cast of Big Easy characters in this hilarious comedy.www.book-it.org
