Buoso goes to the theater

Finally onstage at the Granada Theatre and less than a week before the curtain goes up on Buoso’s opera. Oops, I mean Puccini’s “Gianni Schicchi.” Everyone was so distraught about the death of Brooks Firestone’s brilliantly played Buoso Donati, that tears flowed like rain. Until they found and read his will. Then the real fun began.

What to do? Gianni Schicchi to the rescue – the nose knows. We just replace the corpse with me.

Great fun was had by all in a rollicking rehearsal.
