Lucky for you (or your friend or girlfriend) The Highball is doing a live reenactment of The Prom episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer for Teen Angst Tuesday.
The television series was created in 1997 by Joss Whedon and strived toward the empowerment of women. Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), “the chosen one”, kicks ass daily (vampire and demon ass, that is) and still manages to go to school and have a social life – not to mention a steamy relationship with Angel, the vampire with a soul.
The Highball’s website describes the guilty pleasures this reenactment provides, “There’s something incredibly cathartic about watching actors experience the same rejection and angst we all faced in high school. Maybe it’s the fact that they’re so much better looking than real people, or maybe it’s because the drama is turned up to 11” (Via Highball).
Tonight at 8pm is the last night The Institution Theater is performing Buffy the Vampire Slayer and it’s only $5 – no excuses.
