Two performances down, four to go. Saturday night they said that 1100 tickets were sold for that night alone! Standing ovations both nights - and not even a sign of stage fright. Even though his character has a name - Edgar, he plays the part of Little Boy. There is also a Little Girl, Mother, Father, Younger Brother, and Grandfather--all nameless. After Friday night's performance, he asked his sister if she'd noticed him scratch his leg in one of the last scenes. He said he was so tired he was itching all over, and he just couldn't help it. Then he said, "But I think it's ok, cause Little Boys scratch sometimes."
