The Orpheum Theatre

The Orpheum Theatre

by David Storment


ran a three week production of my father’s death. Every night sold out in advance. I begged the ticket lady for standing room: It’s my father, I said. I deserve to see how it ends. She shrugged her shoulders. You’ll have to wait, she said. But I wanted to be a son who cried. I wanted to see it now.
