Thank you, kimbob.

"you sexually conflicted hermaohrodite" [sic] is my new favorite insult.

In other news, get thee to Paper Mill and see thee their phenomenal Ragtime. Aside from a terrible Emma Goldman, it's probably about as perfect a production as the show will ever get. Stafford Arima replicates his stripped-down London staging, which does away with the original's ponderousness and focuses directly on the characters, rather than on the car and the set. Of particular note in the cast are Kenita Miller's extraordinary Sarah, Shonn Wiley's superlative Younger Brother, Neal Benari's heartfelt and beautifully sung Tateh, and David Hess's marvelous Father. David Loud conducts the orchestra superbly, as he did on Broadway - if this was a smaller pit than at the Ford Center, I couldn't tell. I could go on for a long time, but I need to go to bed, so instead I'll just repeat that you should go see it. Now, dammit.
