Whispers from the Wings


September 10, 2012

So, a few apologies and queries:

Apparently, one spells our lead actor's name 'Paterson Joseph' not 'Patterson'. I blame my editor. One cannot get the staff nowadays! But doesn't that make his name PATErson, as in the PATE of his head? I think he should change his name to make it far less confusing for all of us. Surely it's more important to him to make all our lives easier? I'm just saying.

Do write back with any comments or thoughts on this blog. I am still trying to work out how to comment on my own blog. Sorry. I am a little bit of a luddite when it comes to technology. But truly enjoy hearing other people's views and comments. Particularly theatre goers. Actually, if you don't go to the theatre, your opinion doesn't count! One has to draw a line somewhere.

I should have published my Twitter account for those of you who are interested in such things. It is afrenchact. Clever, eh? I should also point you in the direction of the RSC Twitter account. I know some of you have no idea what I am talking about and some of you don't want to know, I felt the same.

But you should give it a go as it is a great way to keep abreast of what's going on and when. The Brunette has nothing but distaste for it. Which I admire her for. But she doesn't need to know every single football transfer rumour. Nor does she have a burning desire to know which actors are going to be in which film before the film has been even made. Statements by Prof Stanley Wells and Stephen Fry? I must know now! Facebook and Twitter may be strangling the art of conversation, but maybe we just need to adjust our way of thinking about how we regard conversations! It can be an evil beast but as Iago says about alcohol:

'Come, come good wine is a good familiar creature if it be well used.'

And I feel like I'm talking to you now. Use it just to keep in touch with me, if you like. Facebook. Twitter. Blogs. Stage. TV. Radio. Film. There is no escape. Andrew French in your pocket. Isn't that a nice thought?
