The standing ovation model


I seldom stand up after a performance (except to leave). But our entire family gave a standing ovation to Follies tonight.

  1. Envy, envy, envy. Sounds like a fabulous show. I saw Follies decades ago and I bet it would be different now that i too have aged. And thanks for the very interesting lecture. Were you a celebrity at the show?

  2. @Jane No, we sat about 2/3 back. Neither a celebrity nor an academic. The actress that played Phyllis struggled with her mermaid hem. It looked like the dress just grew and grew under the weight of the beads.

    It reminds me of the time I worked as a wardrobe mistress and I hemmed and rehemmed a similar dress, right up to the moment the actress made her stage entrances. I swear, if you looked at the dress carefully, you could see the hem grow!
