Do You Watch Royal Pains?

Eric and I do.  In fact, we watched tonight.  In this episode, a theater company is putting on a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, my favorite Shakespeare comedy, in the Hamptons.

Evan makes the theater mistake of wishing his fiancee "good luck" and then repeatedly saying "Macbeth" in the theater.  For those of you who don't know, these are both bad ideas.  Really bad.  In fact, saying "Macbeth" in a theater, according to the superstitious, is a great way to have absolutely everything in a performance go wrong.

Of course, things start to go wrong, from a hyperventillating actress to an actor with different breathing issues.

During rehearsal, the Lysander has "faerie dust" sprinkled over his eyes... and it ends up in his eyes.  Guess what's being used as faerie dust.  No really, guess.  GlitterCraft glitter.  Guess the result.  Hospitalization due to a foreign body in the eye, together with the threat of having to forge on with an eyepatch.

Yeah.  That, my friends, is why we don't use craft glitter on the face.  That is why we use cosmetic glitter in face painting.

Always ask!
