Josh opened his show last night: The Tooth of Crime by Sam Shepard, music & lyrics by T Bone Burnett. He was smashing. Just brilliant. I knew it, but I was nice to hear others say it as well. (Actually, everyone around me was gushing his praises – and, rightly so.)
Josh flattered me last night: he asked how I thought the show went. This is a big deal because I am not an actor by trade; I did not major in theatre in college, and I have a self-cultivated understanding of good theatre. Nevertheless, Josh asked my opinion and where I thought improvements could be made. I loved chatting with him about the show intelligently and talking about understanding the thick language in that play.
Don’t forget to talk with your family about what you do all day; it’s such a great connection to make. I’m glad Josh considers me to be smart enough to understand what he does at work. It makes me feel clever.
