I'd won tickets from the local NPR station to see R. Buckminster Fuller: The History (and Mystery) of the Universe at the Arena Stage. It was the first time I'd been to Arena Stage's temporary digs in the underground rabbit warren known as Crystal City, and the current production is the last before moving to the newly renovated theater. The show itself was a one-man performance by an actor whom we'd already seen in The Rivalry last January. While I totally admire his performance alone, with a bunch of strange stage props and an overhead projector for two and a half hours, it was still slow going for a non-philosophical, non-scientific luddite like myself. Still, I could appreciate the beauty of spheres.
