Nope. Nuh-uh.
by Your Diva, Robin Pastorio-Newman

Your Darling, Your Diva, Your One True Love is an eightish-year-old conceit, an imaginary opinionated dame who has never been rude to anyone accidentally. She is a character in my repertoire but she is not me, me being Rob Pastorio-Newman.
 
Recently, a dear friend took me to see the current play at the George Street Playhouse, A Wilderness of Mirrors, which featured high school renditions of reasonably complex characters in poorly written situations. While many theater-goers may have left satisfied, I left the building sputtering mad - again - wondering how the GSP gets away with presenting expensive, execrable productions year after year. However, the hospitality of the dear friend who took me to see the play cannot be overlooked. Thank you, Armen!
 
Now, Altrok readers, a few notes for real life. Feel free to jot such a list yourself and send it to fancypants@altrok.com.
