So here is what I dreamed last night: I invited Mrs Robinson, Michele Obama’s mother, and her granddaughters, Sasha and Malia Obama, to White Castle where I introduced them all to the tasty mini burgers. The girls loved them. I was very solicitous of them because we were in a small resort on an island made of sand which risked sinking (pretty obvious metaphor there!!) The girls were en route to school with their grandmother and I found their backpacks unbelievably heavy with books. I said to myself, “these private schools ought to get hip to the danger of their young students sinking under such unresonable weight.”
So that was last night. Today I went. To the Hospital of Special Surgery for a. Cortisone shot cause I tore my Labrum (like Arod!) Using the walker the wrong way in my play (“33 variations.”) –totally my fault. I feel like a new person today but last night I used a cane, even for curtain call. Wonder if people just thought I am an over-the-board Method actress!!
All’s well that ends well.
Oh yes, the interview I did with Elizabeth Lesser on Oprah’s radio show will air Monday March 30th at 1pm and will be re-aired that same day at 7pm.
See you next time. I want to talk about how things about the play come to me in my dreams.
