This evening, the cast and crew will gather for a first read-through of The Odd Couple. There are sure to be some laughs as we face the suddenly very real idea of performance. We open in 46 days!

Tonight's run through is not a public performance, but — then again — no one has said it is strictly private.

If, say, you — a member of the theatre-going public — happen to be in the back room of Katzinger's Deli (map here) starting at 6 p.m., would it be wrong for you — also a member of the corned-beef-eating public — to refuse to give up your table, eavesdrop, and (when appropriate) laugh and applaud?
