Small Blurry Baby has yet to put in an appearance and is now late. Curtain up should have been on the 20th just gone, but SBB is still firmly in the dressing room hanging around upside down and refusing to emerge for the opening scene.
The stage manager has been informed and has said that this sometimes happens with temperamental starlets; he'll go and bang on the dressing room door in a few days and make threatening noises about "never working in this town again" as an inducement. Apparently this has been known to work in the past.
In the meantime here's a shot of the dressing room exterior complete with attendant hair and make-up artiste, Auntie Lizzie, in very dopey and sleepy mode.
The low angle of the photo is because it was taken by YarMatt standing at full stretch on tippy-toes and pointing his camera upwards to the seated sisters.
