Fiorella was a spy last night. She'd sent a nice letter to Georgetown's Palace Theater several weeks ago explaining that she wanted to give it a plug in the book she is currently writing, but needed to set up a a one-hour tour for accuracy.
No reply. Fio bitched.
Friend Suzy told her that there was a cast party backstage every opening night which the audience could attend so Fio showed up at Shrek's debut last night. She started taking notes the second she passed through the door. During intermission she walked up to the balcony and found the light booth. After the show she followed the cast up the steps onto the stage and out the back door to the auxiliary building where she peered into restrooms, dressing rooms, storerooms, and the green room.
She asked questions about the construction of the stage.
Then she packed up and drove home.
Hah! Fio thwarted you, Palace Theater! And don't think she's going to give you a shout-out in her book either! Besides, Shrek sucked!
