“There were these four foreign teenagers who came and sat in the very front row on a double date. There were two guys and two girls in the middle of them. Just really no concept of what it means to come to a Broadway show - just full conversations across each other, pointing at me and making comments about me. I tried to find all these sorts of times throughout the first act to glare at them and try to give them like a telepathic like "Please just shut your mouths” and it just really, it really just egged them on. They were like “He’s looking at us! He’s looking!” and I was like “Okay, no, that’s the opposite of the reaction I wanted.” And so, um, I kept trying to figure out how to get these people to just be quiet and so at the end of the first act, I get to come all the way to the lip of the stage and I give this sort of nervous speech with these notecards and I’m like right in front of them and they’re literally right there and I’m right up at the end of the stage…” (*)
I'm really interested in adopting some toads and to want to make them a good home but I don't know where to start. Do you have any advice for a new toad mom?
