-considering yourself a bohemian is lame.
-you're mother has to tell you you're a good actress; she's your mother. It's her job.
-Northwestern's theatre department sucks. Don't envy their students.
-The Pirate Queen was bad. Nothing you say can ever make what is was good.
-it's pronounced Eh-qwis, not Eee-kwis. The show's about horses.
-bragging about having the "leads" in student-written high school productions to your new college friend is lame. She was not impressed, and nor was I.
-Sondheim wrote Passion. Yes, Passion, the show you paid $40, right now. Are you still unsure of who wrote the musical you're sitting front row to see? StephenbloodySondheim not AndrewfuckingLloydWebber! Educate.
-be humble. No one likes a bragger.
Good thing I spoke up:
"Girls, I know this sounds a bit old & jaded, but I really think you should reconsider how you talk about yourself in such close proximity to strangers. Theatre-going strangers, no less. Your off-kilter & asinine antidotes offer an uneducated & naive representation of yourself. You're not special."
Wish I had told her that after curtain call.
(maybe a little nicer, but said it nonetheless).
