So what should we do?
Nothing. Strangely enough, all will end well!
I don't know, it's a mystery....
Even a non-theater person who was a mother of one of the budding thespians could tell what a disaster the run-through had been with the little darlings, a MOTHER, you understand, asked what in the world that was, what had happened, how had a piece of genuine entertainment appeared on that stage today?
Indeed, I don't know how all ends well, and it is something about the stage that continues, unfailingly, to amaze and delight me.
