The disappearing editor

Apologies to my devoted blog fans (hi, Mom) for not having posted in about 57 days.

But I have a note. Or at least an excuse. I'm in a show in San Jose: "Tomfoolery," a revue of Tom Lehrer songs. The man is a genius. Decades later, his songs are still relevant and hilarious. "Send the Marines," anyone?

And physical comedy is a new experience for me. I usually play an ingenue. Now I get to fall down on the stage, hit people with a yardstick, and throw up into a sombrero. Now that's great theater.

Fellow Tom Lehrer fans, unite! What are your favorite songs?
