Brat Mat

Better known as the student matinee. The much maligned performance we all have to give once in a 10 am. An artist's nightmare. We have to get up before noon. We relive, as adults, the lack of acceptance we had at every age represented in the audience. We have actually all had pennies thrown at us at least once by the weasels. And since it is not in our purview to stop the show, continue we must. It is hell.

Except in Arizona.

They have somehow trained these kids not to act as if they're at a concert or at home watching tv...but at the theater. They are respectful and attentive. They follow the story. They do interact...but with US! In the very near future, 6 of us get to be rock stars for 2 hours and 15 minutes.

In Arizona.

I'll take it.
