On Broadway

There are few joys in my life than reading theatre reviews for a show that you just know is going to be panned. You just sense that reviewers have been sitting at home, scribbling furiously slings and arrows of outrageous portion. For an actor, it's like going to the Colisseum to watch the lions train on Christians. It's not the main event by any means, but then it's not meant to be.

Sadly, that opening has not materialized, but there's been a minor league show to warm me up.
