A play about a rehearsal for a play—with snatches of song, some bursts of dance, crazed rants about life, and two or three appeals to the moon and Jane Austen—who, GENIUS that she was, combined those two words “fortitude” and “gentleness” (are you ready?) MORE THAN 200 YEARS AGO because she believed that said combo is a BOTH-AND way of doing life not an EITHER-OR way of doing it, even though one character in the play STILL thinks, stuck-in-the-mud Eeyore that he is, that “either/or” is the ONLY way to do anything, to which the other character in the play can only roll her eyes for the umpteenth time and say, “Yeesh.”
