Back to Fuerza Bruta I went last night! I love this show (read my review on it here). And, as a test, I took Gerald, who I anticipated would hate the thing as it combines all aspects in life he deplores: crowds, chaos, pushyshovey people, and interactive theatre. But — surprise, surprise! — he LOVED it. (It also didn’t hurt that they had $2 beers in the lobby before the show.)
