I am a natural blond. (Insert blond joke here.) My color is now a dark brown. In The Man Who Came to Dinner, I play the 60+ year old Dr. Bradley and gray does not show up very well on Blond hair, so I colored it. Now the gray I add each night of the performance should show up much better, I hope.
I have let my hair grow out over my ears. This will have to go, as well as, changing my style. I wear my hair parted in the middle. I will have it cut short and parted on the side. And with gray added and with some makeup, hopefully I will look much older.
The Man Who Came to Dinner opens this Friday.
