Oh, the Irony

by Dan Stout


From a NY Times article on the original production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf:

I used to have my stage manager report back to me what people said in the theater as they left. One day, a typical Greenwich, Conn., woman — very hoity-toity, very hot potato, you know? — looked at her husband afterward and said, ‘Frederick, married people simply do not speak to each other that way, don’t you think?’ And he looked at her and said, ‘Ethel, for Christ’s sake, shut up.’
