The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.

My Photo
Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States

I am a visual artist and writer living in Baltimore. I don't have any artist friends. Frankly, artists scare me, there so darn flaky. The above picture is either of me or proof that I'm a pretty decent artist. My goal is to be a self sufficient artist, whereas I wouldn't have to do something else in the day in order to eke out an existence. I also like to attend various cultural events around town. I go to plays, the symphony, etc. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome. I found this out recently and it has explained a heck of a lot as to why I am as I am.

This afternoon I went to Center Stage to see Ah Wilderness. It was pretty good. It was written by Eugene O’Neil, a writer not normally known for comedy. Overall it was a pretty good production. However, in my opinion the play ended too abruptly.

I noticed while reading the playbook that a number of actors in the paly were members of LAMDA. I was shocked by this information. I was shocked because I associate LAMDA with a gay political organization. It seemed upon reading the playbook that nearly all the actors and actresses in the play were members of LAMDA! I soon found myself wondering if the actor who played Richard in the play was a man who was once a woman. One thing for sure was that he looked pretty effeminate in the headshot of him that was included in the playbook. He looked from the picture as though he would make a pretty good drag queen. Then I looked up LAMDA after I got home and found out it was not a gay organizatin but instead meant the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. The gay political group is LAMBDA.

I wonder if I was the only theatre goer who after reading the playbook thought that the majority of actors on stage were out and proud lesbians and gays?
