She was playing Scarlett O'Hara in an Off-Off-Off Broadway production of Gone With The Wind. It was very ingeniously written and staged using a small company of actors who played everything from people to cannons.
She gave me her number when I spoke with her after the play. I called her late on a Sunday afternoon when I knew the theater was dark.
-Yes, I remember you.
-Would you like to have dinner and maybe a film?”
-I'm waiting for the Beatles to come on Ed Sullivan. Sorry.
-Another time maybe?
