Just remembered that I went to a play with Joan Rivers once. Kind of. It was the summer of 2011, I was in New York City for three months, and there was no way I was going to miss “Silence! The Musical” — the unauthorized musical adaption of Silence of the Lambs. When we took our seats, there was a small hubbub and we looked over to see Ms. Rivers scooting into our aisle with a small posse. She was friendly, laughed loudly during the show, and took photos afterwards. I thought it was very kind of her to support weirdo, fringe theatre. But in reading all these stories about her since her death, it seems she was gracious and supportive of many emerging artists.
