As Sir Ian McKellen traverses the country with the Royal Shakespeare Company in repertory with King Lear and The Seagull, he's to be forgiven for occasionally wanting to grab a bite to eat with the locals.
Currently in Minneapolis at the Guthrie, McKellan tried getting into the restaurant next door only to be turned away. Seems the staff at Spoonriver had not a clue who he was -- that, despite the restaurant's online claim that it "complements its artistic neighbor." Apparently, it doesn't compliment its artistic neighbors at all.
A picture! A picture! My kingdom for a picture!

As someone who has been involved in both politics and public relations, it's no wonder I love watching theatre. Good or bad, it's the raw energy of seeing a live performance that gets my adrenaline pumping. From the moment I saw my very first Broadway show ("Annie" in London in 1979), I was hooked. Now I see as many as 70 shows each year ranging from soaring musicals to two-hander plays. And these eyes just may be in an audience near you!
