I failed to link to this article in the New York Times, that quotes me regarding an outdoor theater mishap. Fun, fun.
That is not always the case when real life intrudes on outdoor theater. Matthew Freeman, a playwright and actor, has this memory of not quite holding it together during a show: “While wearing a yarmulke and playing Fabian in ‘Twelfth Night,’ I was yipped at by a tiny pet dog. I shouted, audibly, ‘Jesus Christ!’ Sort of shattered the illusion.”
