The Importance of Getting Home before Twelve

Sure, it was Important to catch Brian Bedford as Lady Bracknell (incredible) in the Broadway opening of the Importance of Being Earnest, and then linger too long at the after party eating a lot of very small carrot cakes. But equally important: GET ON THAT L TRAIN BEFORE 12. I feel like Cinderella sometimes and usually I make my curfew. If I don’t, A fifteen minute commute turns into an hour fifteen. But last night I didn’t and was there to witness all of the bleary eyed folk, having waited for an L for almost 30 minutes, turn into pumpkins, and by pumpkins, I do mean angry tired wolves.
