Unfortunately, Harold trod the boards officially for the first time in seventeen years on the night of the World Series in which the St. Louis Cardinals were featured. Unhappy husbands listened to the results on headphones during the performance, having been dragged to the show by their culture-conscious wives. While these same wives put on expressions thought suitable for Pinter: wistful ennui just about sums it up. There were sudden eruptions of violent unlawful sounds from the headphones.For the record, Fraser also provides a lovely anecdote about visiting Tennessee Williams' grave at the Catholic cemetery here -- a final resting place that RFT staff writer Aimee Levitt wrote a bit about here. Hers is a wonderful, generous memoir overall; our only beef might be that its portrayal of St. Louis men in the post-season hits a bit too close to home.
