Yesterday evening, as my cab pulled up to The Den Theatre for Nothing Special Productions’ My Kinda Town, this totally true conversation transpired between me and the cranky and colorful Greek cabbie:
Cabbie: Is this the place?
Cabbie: What is it? Some small fucking shit theatre or whatever?
Me: I guess so…
Cabbie: So many small fucking shit theatres in this town. In my country? Theatre is a fucking amphitheater. Here? Some shithole.
And that’s when I fell even more in love with our crazy city and our “shithole” theatre.
