Memoirs

I just read Flights of Angels, a memoir by Adrian Brooks about his time with the Angels of Light theater troupe. I discovered that I am mentioned in it several times. In the author's ego-driven attempt to settle old scores he claims that Cinderella II (which I wrote for the Angels) was a "flop"-- presumably because Adrian was not in it. Quite the contrary, Cinderella II, while it was too long when we opened, was trimmed, jelled after a few performances, and went on to a delightfully polished show, enjoying excellent reviews from most reviewers, return business, and even three Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Awards, including lead performance by Cinderella. There were huge and ugly backstage fights, naturally, but the show was a HIT.
