Pat OBrien in “Underneath the Lintel.”Brien in “Underneath the Lintel.”

FEATURING: Rebecca J. Ritzel! Camilla Domonoske! Rachel Manteuffel! Look what I do for you, dear listeners.

DISCUSSED: The Tragical Mirth of Love and Marriage: Short Scenes by Chekov; A Guide to Dancing Naked; Fish Outta Water; Underneath the Lintel; Detective Pimbley and the Case of the Rich, Dead Lady.

DISCOVERED: The Librarian is a made-for-cable adventure film franchise starring E.R.‘s Noah Wylie. Ritzel’s mom points out errors in the newspaper.

CONFESSED: I had not read, or at least could not remember having read, Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull when I reviewed its brilliant update, Aaron Posner’s Stupid Fucking Bird, at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company earlier this summer! Although I went back and read it (or possibly re-read it) afterwards! And then saw the play again! Also, Ritzel gave National Symphony Orchestra Associate Conductor Emil de Cou a Fringe button so he wouldn’t have to pay an extra $7 to see Yvonne Carruthers In Search of the Perfect G-String.

DISCLOSED: I had to bribe Ritzel with a CD she wanted to get her to do this.
