They'd Better Laugh At My Son - But NO Talking!
MY CHILD IS GOING TO BE IN A PLAY!
A SHAKESPEAREAN PLAY!
IN A BIG SPEAKING ROLE!
AS A FUNNY CHARACTER, BEAUTIFULLY EMPLOYING HIS TALENTS!
Whew. Glad for that release. I might have exploded otherwise.
I will give you a hint about which character he will be playing: At one point, he'll be dressed in yellow stockings. Cross-gartered ones, in fact.
I am so tickled for him. As many times as I've seen the play, I never thought, "yes, indeed, some day I'll have a wonderful, clever, handsome son who will act in that role."
It blows my mind.
In other news, I see that Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig are playing on Broadway. We saw the signs advertising the upcoming run of A Steady Rain when we visited New York this summer, and wished it was on then. I loved the story about Hugh's response to an audience member's ringing cell phone during one of his scenes. Right on, Hugh!
I would just like to put the world on notice that if anyone dares to talk or allow their cell phone to ring while my beloved child is on stage, I am going to go Wolverine on their ass.
