Hamming it up at theater in the round?
For the second time in a week, I’m presenting Things Maybe We Should Have Explained in a Caption, but Didn’t.
I have no choice, what with finding photos of a stage drama in which the caption tells us an actor is “dressed in meat.” Say what?
Don’t worry, I’m not going to stoop to awful word-play, like meaty role, a rare performance, the play was well done, he butchered the part… I do have some dignity, you know.
But I will say two things here. First, I suggest you see this play as close to opening night as possible, because those costumes won’t improve with age, if you take my meaning. And second, if my dogs ever get tickets to this play, it will not be a pretty sight.
