apropos of nothing

A nice scenic shot from a Broadway show. A slide show in the theater section of the *New York Times* illustrates an evocative, half-naturalistic, half-fantastical set for the John Lithgow *All My Sons,* which just opened on Thursday, as directed by Simon McBurney, with sets and costumes by Tom Pye.

Bobo has acted with John Lithgow.
No, really.
Fall of about '85, UCLA. Bobo's the T.A. in Prof. Karen Rowe's English 90, Shakespeare for non-English Majors. Lithgow is (or was then) married to a UCLA economics prof, a friend of Rowe's. She had him in to read *1 Henry IV.* Bobo and Lithgow switched off playing Falstaff and Prince Hal.
His Falstaff was a LOT better than Bobo's.
A LOT better.
Rowe ran off so many dittos before class that we referred to her as "Our Lady of the Purple Fingers."
