Last night was the preview night for The Sunshine Boys. We had a crowd of about 30 people (including my lovely wife). The majority of the crowd was a group from a local retirement home. They were rather boisterous. When BEN (Michael Nelson) mentioned the “Low Sodium Soups” he had brought for his Uncle WILLIE (Tim Gailey), one of the retired folks said “Yeah, and tastes like nothing too”. Michael had a difficult time keeping his composure and place.
Later when the NURSE (Monique Diaz-Piedra) comes out on stage, and well she is dressed like a voluptuous blond, there were several cheers and loud comments. They had a great time! This is one of the reasons I wanted to get into acting, to entertain. I know it sounds cliche but its true.
