Hell Week

...if you wanna know about the bishop and the actress/if you wanna know how to be a star/ if you wanna know about the stains on the mattress/you can read it....

Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie opens this Friday March 9 at the Chesapeake Arts Center at 8 PM. It will run two weekends only, and close on the 19th. Shows on Friday and Saturday nights are at 8 PM, and the Sunday matinees are at 2 PM. Tickets may be purchased in advance or at the door, and are $12 for members and $15 for non-members.

The director told us not to read the review. As if we're going to get one. Nobody reviews a show that runs only two weeks. It's idiotic. And what a thing to say to an adult actor! "Don't read the review. It'll change the way you act."

Still, since I am partially in this for the experience of working with a new director, I'll do as she says, and if there is one, I won't read the review.

I'll get Coco to read it to me.

Heck, I'd go if I could. This whole Canadian gimmick really blows sometimes.
