Wayback Machine to the rescue!

Posting the Horror Academy quote list made me pine for the old Rosebriar ones, which they no longer have on the company website because they are boring old sticks-in-the-mud. Okay, no they're not. But back when I was the webmaster, I did once get an email from the person who indexed sites for Playbill.com, saying I'd made her day by having the "behind-the-scenes silliness" page.

Since they're no longer there, and since they amuse me mightily (having been there; YMMV if you weren't, although a couple of you were, or at least knew those involved), I went a-hunting on the Wayback Machine to see if they were archived there. Sure enough, they were, and I'll be posting them over the next few days for your amusement. (I will spare your friends page and not do all half-dozen of them at once.)

What do you mean, he wore the oatmeal?

But you don't have to sing with birds this time.

Benedick CHEATS!

Borachio's Margaret. Don Pedro's Margaret. EVERY man's Margaret.

THAT's what this show is missing! There's no madam!

Noisy blue dress! It lives on. My love of that thing led to me making it a major plot point in my play. So now because of this production of Much Ado, there is a noisy blue dress in the costume shop of Marquette University. I'm comforted by this fact.

Yes, during the kids' R+J, as Lady Montague.

Of course! :: snaps fingers :: 'Cause, y'know, it's not like I was the fight director for that show or anything...

It deserves to be! :-D I swear I heard people trying not to laugh every night when I went stomping across the stage in it during what should have been a quiet, tense moment after the Friar proposed the plan for faking Hero's death...
