It's not often, or hasn't been in my life, that one gets one's heart's desire. It always seemed that life gave me fake Barbies hidden in real Barbie boxes. Like I was too stupid to know the difference. Therefore, when I do get something I have wanted for a long time, it makes me feel as if I am in tune with the Universe.
The reason this scares me is that I felt the same way when I married Jim.
Of course, the major difference is that marriage is open-ended, and "Godot" has only a three week run. I expect it to end at strike. My marriage to Jim, however, ended before I was ready...halfway through the first act.
Back to the play. The fact that such talented people have put themselves in my hands (so to speak) boggles my mind. And that a well-respected critic should say,
Ronnie Prior does "get it." This is a notable staging, an exploration in airy, droll and quizzical comic mode....is just the icing on the cake.
I am too happy. Something has to happen.
Usually, when I direct a show, or act in one, my blog is full of commentary about how it's going. I've been pretty quiet about this one, and now you know why.
