Hmmm. Could it be that that artistic director didn't see that critic in the next line at the coffee shop this morning?
Or was it that somebody just didn't want to say hello? (Theaterboy can think of at least two reasons that last might be the case; their initials are R&H and L&L.)
Anyway, nary a word passed between the two despite their standing not 15 feet apart. Critic went to the sugar-and-cream bar, and when that was done, turned around to discover that the AD had beetled off up the street...
