To ALS -- Yup, you're right. Vladimir has the vegetables in his pockets. Thanks for the correction. I've seen the play maybe a half dozen times, and read it twice as many, and I still get those characters' names confused in my head.
Correction to the correction: After speaking to Nathaniel Braga's father, Court Theatre's publicist informs me that the actor's father is Chinese and Portuguese, while his mother (deceased) is French and Polish.
Correction: I was wrong when I identified Nathaniel Braga, who plays Butterfly, as a non-Chinese actor. According to Court Theatre's publicist, Mr. Braga is of Chinese descent, as his father is Chinese-American, and his mother is Portuguese. Obviously I should have checked before I submitted the review. My apologies.
And here's the final period I left off of my previous comment: "."
Mr. Felder -- Thanks for your interesting, thoughtful response. It gives me much to think about
Thanks, Gina79. And thanks for reading the Reader.
