Well, what’s wrong with going All Steel Magnolias or All Rubbed Out At Ruby’s All The Time when Ruby’s is the day after tomorrow and Magnolias opens a week from tomorrow? I am a little obsessed with both of them. Since Ruby’s is coming up sooner, I’ll share a little about that today.
Here is a picture of the characters for Rubbed Out at Ruby’s, taken from LiFT Theatre Company’s Facebook page. This is the first I’ve seen of some of the costumes, and I’m pretty excited about it. I confess, I am less than thrilled about how the picture of me turned out. It seems I am not nearly as cute as I think I am. No matter. I’m sure I shall be highly entertaining as Ruby.
Hey, I just thought of something. I wrote the mystery. I named it Rubbed Out at Ruby’s, and I cast myself as Ruby. Doesn’t that sound supremely egotistical of me? How embarrassing. I assure you, I am not the star. It is an ensemble piece, and all the characters are quite memorable.
Here is a shot of the Overlook Mansion, where it all takes place. I feel thrilled every time I approach it. The inside is just as magnificent.
I end with a couple of Facebook ads for the mystery, just in case any local readers wanted more information.
