Mister Ron's Basement #1248
SUNDAY SALAD explores the joys of performing in the theater! Stanley Huntley's characters trod the boards in THREE fun tales today.
First, a 'swell' theatrical impresario talks up his productions with the Eagle editor in 'Getting A Notice' from 1882. Then the Breezy family has it out concerning Mrs. Breezy's desire to play romantic roles in 'Asserting His Position,' also from 1882. Finally, we have a truly rare Spoopendyke story from 1884 -- 'Mrs. Spoopendyke Possessed with a Sudden Desire to go on the Stage.'
This particular Spoopendyke piece is discussed in more detail in our blog -- http://misterronsbasement.blogspot.com/2008/12/curious-case-of-benjamin-button-other.html.
Time: approx twenty minutes
