After tonight's performance the audience will scatter to the four winds, but don't be surprised if you find the producer, the director, the author, and the lead players have gathered for a light supper, some soft music, and some good talk at our Palm Court. If they're not there, look in the Oak Bar, the Oyster Bar, or Trader Vic's.

wrought has been nearly complete and resurrection requires more faith than most of us possess."

Nor are these, should I care to boast, the worst of my press notices. People have written about me in terms that I swear I would not address to a lame dog with a sore throat trying to sing "Trovatore" on a barge making its way down the Hudson in a fog. Unless the dog struck me as pretentiousness.

What has happened to me over the years has indeed helped me to place myself in the theatre, and into what the theatre means. Or what criticism means. I am a journalist but I am also very much a part of the theatre. I am a theatre worker. I suffer with the theatre. I swear with the theatre. I bleed with the theatre. If the theatre starves I starve. I am the intelligent tick on the backside of genius. Hopefully.

I enter the theatre as its friend and its servant. I am not an adversary. I am an interpreter and a guardian-an interpreter of mysteries it did not know needed interpreting and a guardian of treasures that close don Saturday night. I am here because I love the theatre with the kind of passion that would make me pay for tickets, and gives both my love and my anger the unconscious edge of sincerity.

In my first crazy New York Broadway season a large lady arrived at Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildernstern Are Dead. She was bedizened with bags from Bloomingdales and other symbols less obvious to the immediate sight. The play had only been on a few minutes. Ten perhaps. She was in the front row. They always are. She raised her immense bulk, like a China Clipper in full sail, tirned majestically to the audience, and announced in a voice even stentorian enough for her ample presence: "That CLIVE BARNES! What does he know, from nothing!" She then trampled her way out, like a cow-elephants are in search of. That CLIVE BARNES! What does he know? What can I tell you? I'm around, I live in the neighborhood, I see the plays, and I tell you what I think. What did you expect, lady? A witch doctor?

Rice tastes best when it's baked.
So Bake-It-Easy.
Only your oven has the wrap-around heat to bake in Bake-It-Easy's taste, and deep-blend all its savory, juicy flavors to give you baked rice at its best. And you get it in just fifteen minutes. You don't simmer, you don't saute. You just Bake-It-Easy. From Carolina.
