Nothing technical, just cute.
Yesterday afternoon, the family went to see “The Fantastiks” (which is still playing, albeit in a very small theater (the actor playing El Gallo had to crouch to avoid the ceiling). During the show, a fire alarm went off, and we dutifully trudged downstairs to the street to await the arrival of the fire department (it was a false alarm, but we didn’t know that as we left the theater).
The cast also left the theater, and they were huddled on the corner shivering in he winter cold. I heard the actress playing Luisa chatting on her phone:
“… And we’re all standing out here on the street in our costumes!”
It’s dorky, I know, but I thought it was funny :).
Btw, the show resumed and was wonderful – it’s amazing that it’s been continually produced in New York for over 40 years now. Wow.
