So every morning I go onto Playbill Online and see what’s happening in theatre in New York, Canada and London. I love knowing what new shows are happening, who’s doing them, etc. And every now and then they do an interview. So I was on there reading an interview today with Broadway actress/singer Dee Hoty. I’ve never seen her live but I have several recordings of shows she’s been in. I love her. Cool voice, really beautiful emotion in her voice. So she was asked what her worst job ever was. Her answer made me laugh for about 5 minutes. I had to share it with you, my peeps. Enjoy. Here it is:
“Making a filmed industrial for Kirby vacuum cleaners (back in Cleveland — how I got my SAG card). Here was my line, as I demo’d the sweeper on my carpet: “My! The Kirby really DOES suck!” I’m not kidding…! (I think they changed it later.)”
I’m still laughing.
