Going Out for the Evening

When a new play opens, we usually read the review in our newspaper to get information about it. Моя жена и я иду в театр, когда мы можем. Но прежде, чем мы покупаем билеты, мы хотели бы знать, если игра, хорошо это или плохо. Когда новая игра открывается, мы обычно прочитал отзыв в нашей газете, чтобы получить информацию об этом.

Last week a new comedy opened at the theater. The newspaper story said it was very amusing, so we decided to go on Saturday night. На прошлой неделе открылась новая комедия в театре.Газетной статьи сказал, что это было очень забавно, так что мы решили пойти в субботу вечером.

My wife took a long time to make, up her mind what to wear and we left our house a little late. By the time we got to the theater, the first act had already begun. Моя жена взяла много времени, чтобы сделать, в голову, что надеть, и мы оставили наш дом немного поздно. К тому времени, когда мы добрались до театра, первый акт уже начался.

We were sorry we missed part of the play, because the rest of it was very funny. The review in the newspaper had been right. It was an extremely entertaining comedy. Мы сожалели, что мы пропустили часть игры, потому что остальная часть это было очень забавно. В обзоре в газете был прав. Это был чрезвычайно развлекательной комедии.

After the play was over, we met some friends we hadn’t seen for long time. They wanted to go to a night club. It had been many years since my wife and I had gone dancing, but I finally agreed. После спектакля была закончена, мы встретили некоторых друзей, которых мы не видели в течение длительного времени. Они хотели пойти в ночной клуб. Прошло много лет с тех пор моя жена и я пошел танцевать, но я в конце концов согласился.

By the time we got home, it was about two o’ciock in the morning. I’m not accustomed to staying out so late and I was extremely tired. К тому времени, как мы возвратились домой, это было около двух o’ciock утром. Я не привык, чтобы оставаться так поздно и я был очень уставшим.

When I was younger, I didn’t have the money to go out for an evening like this. Now that I can afford it, I don’t have the energy to really enjoy it. Когда я был моложе, у меня не было денег, чтобы выйти на такой вечер. Теперь, когда я могу себе это позволить, у меня нет энергии, чтобы действительно наслаждаться им.

Conversation

DOROTHY: Paul, we haven’t gone out for over a month. Let’s go somewhere this evening. PAUL: Fine. Where would you like to go? Look in the newspaper to get information about the movies or the theater. DOROTHY: I see that a new play opened this week. PAUL: It got very bad reviews. The newspaper story said it was the worst play of the year. You don’t want to go there. What else can we do? DOROTHY: I’d enjoy a good concert, but, according to the paper, there aren’t any tonight. PAUL: Aren’t there any good movies in town? DOROTHY: How about “Dancing in the Dark”? That should be entertaining. PAUL: We’ve already seen it. It’s an old picture. Don’t you remember? DOROTHY: Well, there’s a good love story at the Center Theater. PAUL: You know I don’t like love stories. What’s at the neighborhood movie theater? DOROTHY: “Amusing Adventure”, with Robert Roberts. It’s a comedy. PAUL: Good. Let’s go there. What time does the main feature start? DOROTHY: It started fifteen minutes ago. We just missed it. PAUL: Well, I guess all we can do is stay home and watch television.
