Got a text from a 2005 Choate alum tonight that brought a smile to my face. Here is the exchange:
I would pay to see Mark Rylance read the Manhattan phone book aloud on stage, so I was thrilled that the Jez Butterworth play Jerusalem was a fitting showcase for his ample acting talents. As "Rooster" Byron, a ne'er-do-well Falstaffian lord of misrule in rural England, Rylance delivered an incredible performance, a tour de force! And the play is pretty terrific all around. Don't miss this if you are able to get to Broadway during its run.
