I was in the middle of a performance of Cabaret (playing Fraulein Schneider), when I suddenly realized something …
The man playing Herr Schultz had on (old) age makeup.
I did not have on age makeup.
No one asked me to wear age makeup.
Clearly, I no longer need age makeup.
When did this happen?
Not only was I no longer a sweet young thing – but you could tell that I was no longer a sweet young thing despite stage lights and distance!
There are no longer enough pink gels to make me look youthful onstage!
So much for the fucking magic of theater!
