Sometimes in a world of theatre, bad things happen. Sometimes an actor contracts an untimely illness and is unable to perform at final dress and perhaps even the show. Sometimes you need… A hero!

Ahem, dramatics aside, one of our actors is unfortunately sick so I have temporarily commandeered the role (and spent today memorizing his lines) and thought this would be funny. All jokes aside, I sincerely hope my brother of the stage recovers quickly and fully and is able to rejoin the cast. In any case, The Taming of the Shrew opens tomorrow!

10 Things I Hate about you.

I hate the way you talk to me,
And the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car,
I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots
And the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick,
It even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you’re always right,
I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh,
Even worse when you make me cry
I hate it when you’re not around,
And the fact that you didn’t call
But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you,
Not even close…
Not even a little bit…
Not even at all.
