Episode 21: No It Isn't.

I just stopped by the Ivory Theatre website to see if they're ever going to produce the Patsy Cline show that Horror Show had posted the audition notices for. But nope, apparently, that's a big bust just like everything else she touches.

And on the site's homepage, I noticed this little passage, which cracked me up...
The Ivory Theatre is a an exciting year-round professional theatre facility presenting a diverse calendar of musicals, dramas, comedies, concerts, cabaret performances, youth and family theatre programs, corporate functions and special events that appeal to all levels and styles of entertainment tastes.
Ummmm.... No it isn't.

It has no drama or cabaret or youth programs or corporate functions or special events anywhere on the calendar. Just community theatre. After all of Horror Show's belly-aching last year about how the Ivory is Professional and the original resident companies weren't professional enough for her, it is mildly hilarious that her only solid tenant now is a community theatre.

And just because I'm like this, I have to ask what an entertainment "level" is, anyway...? And while we're asking, what is a "style" of "entertainment tastes"?

Oops! I almost forgot -- we're talking about Horror Show here! Meaning and sense are just collateral damage in her ongoing War on Honesty and Ethics. Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more...!
