Theatre Geek Chic: The Broadway Princess Edition👸

This season on Broadway we’ve had an especially diverse array of stories.  As Tina Fey put it, as she presented the Best Leading Actor award on the Tonys, “[we’ve had] straight men playing gay, gay men playing straight, anxiety disorders, existential crisis, accordions, and fat suits”. I think that pretty much sums it up. But in thinking over things, I came across to a startling … Continue reading Theatre Geek Chic: The Broadway Princess Edition👸

In Pursuit of Class

  Classiness.

I have, since the age of 15,  been on a quest to achieve the epitome of classiness, whatever the heck that consists of. Sadly I have not always been on this quest. When I was a young chit … Continue reading In Pursuit of Class
