Absurd Person Singular and Cyberstalking

Had a great time tonight at Absurd Person Singular at the Garrick. Okay, well, let's be clear, it's a wee bit difficult to have a good time at a show so profoundly misogynistic. Is your wife shy? Berate her! Depressed? Tell her to shut up! Suicidal? Ignore her in favor of more "fun" people. I found the whole concept of this show being a comedy a little difficult to swallow. The audience was laughing enough, but part of me wondered if they were mostly so old that a seventies chestnut was comical. I found the whole air of foreboding rather Pinteresque; I presume the rest of the audience was just in a Christmas panto/comedy mood and wanted to laugh.
Me, well, let's be clear, it was the presence of the lovely West End Whingers that made my night. Bitter, jaded burnouts who are willing to cut their losses at intermission: that's what I'm talking about! And there was piles of wine and I got to meet Liz who is clearly a genius because she thought _Venus as a Boy_ was a work of brilliance only surpassed in its excellence this year by RNB's "Chroma" and since she shares my opinions, I, of course, think she is great and remarkably perceptive. So we're supposed to go out Saturday and see the latest at the Soho Theatre, and I'm convinced that, whatever the quality of the show, this was a Good Night Out.
