Showboat

I just saw a wonderful Lamplighters production of Showboat. We had some idiots in the row behind us yapping for quite a bit of the play, and when they got to the point in the play where there are some hicks that show up at the play-within-a-play, and to show that they're completely uncultured what do they have them do? They talk during the performance. And I wanted to turn around and scream "Don't you get it? That's you!"

Ironically they spent the intermission bragging to each other about all the other performances they'd seen and making historical notes about the instrumentation of the orchestra. Fine, but you never learned to be a good audience menber.

PS Kelsey MacIlvaine is just about as beautiful as they come.
