Say hey, Steve: you never answered my question about when your show goes up. Have you strutted your stuff before an audience yet?
I got some great news this week. I've been cast in a production of the great 1930 Noel Coward romantic comedy "Private Lives" . . . a nice change of pace from the Shakespeare and Sophocles. Should be a lot of fun.
I made the mistake of glancing at the Wikipedia page for this show and saw that the role of Elyot was originated by Coward himself, and among the folks who played him later were Richard Burton and Alan Rickman. Yikes! I'm gonna try to forget that. . . .
War is, at first, the hope that one will be better off; next, the expectation that the other fellow will be worse off; then, the satisfaction that he isn't any better off; and, finally, the surprise at everyone's being worse off. - Karl Kraus
