*Orson's Shadow*

Bobo's seeing Austin Pendleton's play at Artists Rep in Portland on Friday night. (It has a theater critic in it! Speculation about what may have happened in 1960 when Kenneth Tynan invited Mr. Welles to direct Mr. Olivier and his new flame Joan Plowright in a production at the Royal Court of Ionescu's *Rhinoceros.* Oh, and a certain Miss Leigh is on long distance, and she sounds rather upset ...)
But sheesh, big-city theater prices: $42.50 plus five bucks tacked on just for the hell of it. That's an often-overlooked advantage to being a Ho in an area like this one.
(Bobo plans on spending most of the Assoc. of Alternative Newsweeklies annual convention in a drunken stupor.)

Bobo saw three of the five off-season shows he recently saw at OSF in Ashland for something like $27.
