1776 random bits - Qualified Perceptions
1776 random bits
So, chenoameg has already reviewed the Lyric 1776, so I'll just mention two anecdotes.

During intermission, I headed to the bathroom. The bathroom upstairs had a very long line, as did the one downstairs. So after the men's room appeared to have cleared out, I asked the last gentleman to leave if there was anyone inside. He said no, there wasn't, so I dashed into that one. When I emerged, I discovered that he had been Guarding The Door, which I had not at all expected. Aww. (Of course, that meant I wasn't starting a revolution of all the women in line to borrow the other bathroom, because then everyone else would have been taking advantage of this gentleman to guard them too, which would seem unfair...)

There was an "opening party" reception at a restaurant afterwards, which half our group went to. (As free food went, it was good, but it didn't serve very well to impress me with the spiffiness of the restaurant to lure me into returning later for dinner.) Anyway, I'm the one who has the job of actually talking to an actor when tirinian identifies them on the subway, so I managed to be brave enough to tell the actor playing Franklin (J.T., but I don't have my program now) that I was glad he got to sing instead of just sound old, and that he was now my favorite Franklin ever. He said that was the nicest thing he'd been told yet, and gave me a Franklin button! I am now a partisan!

Actors distributing Franklin buttons? Is this some new form of publicity, or is he just very fond of his role? :)

He didn't seem to be campaigning or anything; perhaps he just had a few in his pocket. :)

J.T. Turner.

Alan & Christy were very impressed that you had been brave enough to talk to him.

Rats. I guess it's too late to join the mob seeing 1776 at the Lyric then. (I only found out it was playing yesterday, sadly.)

You could join up with desireearmfeldt and [Bad username: frederickegerman] still, who are going later.

Ooh, yes, I would like that. I've never seen it performed live. Is there any chance of sitting together or should I just get a ticket on my own? (I'll probably try & get Andrew to come too, but haven't talked to him yet.)

If there's any special mojo I should know,can you send me an email?

Can you know mojo? I thought you either had it or you didn't. I didn't think you could email it.

I'm just askin'.

I think you're right. Mojo is possessed, not known. It can be given, but not told.

Secret Gnosis, however, can be conveyed through speech.
