I had to look up the exact date (June 1997) and the venue (Doolittle Theater) for this post, yet 21 years later, I find myself with vivid recollections, and a permeating fine impression, of the play, which regrettably I only saw once. Looking back, it was a privilege to be there that evening, one occasional play among the many movies and fewer concerts which I used to attend on a regular basis. No matter how many times you might have heard of or seen a seasoned performer of her class in films, the aura on the stage was captivating, riveting, disarming.

This could become another long note, but brevity may serve us better this evening.
