I Have The Craziest Dreams, Sometimes! Really, I Do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                  One night last week I had this dream about appearing on stage, with Tallulah Bankhead, in Thornton Wilder's "The Skin Of Our Teeth,"

                                    Don't ask me why.  The only thought I have given to Tallulah, lately, is David's having recorded "Die! Die! My Darling!," which I am sure all on here know and love, and how we have to watch it when there is a spare moment.  It is such fun. And Yootha Joyce almost steals the show as a housekeeper who would make Mrs. Danvers seem placid, by comparison!

                                     Plus, I don't even like this play.  As can be seen from the photo, it is pretty surreal.  Not like "Our Town," or even "The Matchmaker," which is how I think of Wilder.

                                      Yet, Tallulah and I were out there on stage, in it.  She, of course, played her signature role of Sabrina.  I cannot recall what I played, though one of these other two might be fine for me.

                                       But, in the scene, we were having a heated exchange of dialogue on stage.

                                        It figures!  Tallulah and I????????????  Can you imagine what it would be  like??????????  Two divas facing off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                         What a challenge for both Tallulah and I!!!!!!!!!!!  Our dressing rooms would have to be at opposite ends of the theater!  And pity the poor stage manager!

                                            Only in my dreams, girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
