Hello possums. Had the best time Friday night seeing Dame Edna. We bought student tickets and were seated in the back row. Well, moments before curtain, an usher told us we were being moved to the very front row… and that we were! Seeing Dame Edna is a mandatory cultural experience for anyone living in New York (and even those who don’t). What does this have to do with food? Well you must go and learn the recipe for Dame Edna’s Crusted Loin of Hare. (Her joke, not mine). Every moment is hilarious and, basically, improvised. She is, according to New Yorker theater critic John Lahr (in the preface to his book about her which I just started reading, “Dame Edna Everage and the Rise of Western Civilisation”) “the goods.” Check her out while she’s here!
