The Drowsy Chaperone
I went to see the Drowsy Chaperone last night on Broadway. It was cute. There were some very funny lines. And the concept was clever. It was odd to me that they named it "The Drowsy Chaperone" in that this character wasn't even the lead. But, of course, the name is catchy. Still, naming a play after a supporting character seems like a cheat. I struggle so much over titles. If I could go with a title that relates to the story but isn't germane to the main theme, it would be so much easier. Maybe I should consider it... Tonight I'm having dinner with my friends Tatiana (Style reporter for the NY Times and a first time novelist) and Jamie (a pediatrician and former brain surgeon - I swear!!!). We're going to the Knickerbocker, one of my favorite restaurants in the Village. I'm very psyched to have a girls night out dinner. I've been working very hard on coming up with the story for book #4 and I'm making progress. Whew!
