She was there

Just quickly I'll say that the sleeping girl was there again last night, but someone had already claimed the gold circle seating position right behind her so we didn't get the bonus show. I did get a glimpse that she was using a notebook for a pillow and had a pen clutched in her hand. Two corners of her blanket were held down by half empty bottles of orange juice. The Man said he saw he sit up near the end of the show and was watching. Wonders never cease.



Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, by the way, was wonderful.

Uncanny....
Speaking of uncanny, have you seen The Dark Knight? I'd love to hear your review or even that of "THE MAN"

Lord help the Company if she is a critic for some underground rag.

Brewer- Perhaps the man and I will co-review it.

Nance- We've been thinking about it and have come up with a possible explaination. Being that she was there early enough to be dead asleep at least twenty minutes before the performace and that she was there both nights and that she seemed not interested in all in the action of the play, my guess is that she is some main squeeze of one of the actors following them around but who is not completely sick of seeing the show night after night. Seems as plausible as anything else.

hey. I know that you don't blog for my sole enjoyment but dang does it make my day when you do blog!!! Thanks for giving me something to read and a bit of "grownup" connection :)

as for the sleeping girl, I was thinking that the first night maybe she knew that the man, with his massive, hero-like, girl-at-show-in-grass protective services was close by and she could rest peacefully ;) She knew that if the sod should happen to fly, he would lead her to safety :)

Weaver: No one can lead you out of a sod filled arena like the Man! We'd probably all would have been buried alive and left for dead if not for him!
