Overheard in the Theatre

From a friend:

OVERHEARD at Mary Poppins, The New Amsterdam Theatre 10/31/07

Girl 1: I hope this play has lots of scenery. I'm so bored when there
is like one thing to look at.
Girl 2: You should see Wicked. It was really good. But the girls
sounded different than the soundtrack.
Girl 1: OMG you know what you would LOVE? Hairspray.
Girl 2: I saw the movie. I do not like Zach Efron at all. I just don't.
Girl 1: I saw the worst play. It had one set. It was so terrible. The worst show I've ever seen.
Girl 2: Really? What was it?
Girl 1: Oh you know what I'm talking about right? It had one set and it was about the butcher and the hairdresser.
Girl 2: Hmm.
Girl 1: Yeah, and they had light shining through the wall. It was the worst.
Girl: Hmm. Glad I didn't see that one.

Shame Sweeney didn't get them.

As much as I hope this is a joke, I fear it's not. I've heard some stupid things in my day, but this is pretty sad.

Sarah, It would be funny if it weren't so sad.
