    Thanks, Mister Mike. Now the stage pictures on Dori’s site, save for the group shot with Jim Rado and Michael Butler down center stage, were apparently from the earlier incarnation of Ant D’Amato’s HAIR. ‘Twas in Bordentown, New Jersey (West Central Jersey). But, as I’d missed THAT run, I’m so happy to see those pics. Thanks again.

    Dori, Dorilicious, is (and I mean “IS”!) the epitome of … “Hippie.” And about the sweetest and most caring person I’ve ever met (save perhaps for her sister and her mom, that they love so much — who, BTW, in the day, by her daughter’s accounts, was the epitome of … “Sheila Franklin” — She was the constant (and consummate) political activist and protester — Linda Erickson, the Costumer for this HAIR, and, BTW, the one who remembered to include a Vietnam veteran in the Tribe, wearing the initials (as did a love of hers at the time), VVAW — “Vietnam Veterans Against the War”).

    Yep, them’s some cool hippie chicks!

    Ding! Ding! Ding! You figured out my dirty little secret! Just kidding.
    I am a notorius hippie… How I LOVE my Hippie Life!!! And Tioga Joe should know- he spent 2 evenings into the dawn at my communal home. I love you man! And yes the picture slideshow on my space is from the last production of Hair(our warm-up as we call it!) where I was Sheila Franklin. Mama Linda raised me to believe in Love, Peace, and Acceptance and to always speak my mind and to stand up for people who can not stand on their own. Sometimes I feel I was born in the wrong generation… but I’m trying my damnest to bring back the revolution to the streets!!!
    Peace & Love

    Nope, Dear Dorilicious Sophia, you were born in the RIGHT time. This time SO needs your Hippie Spirit. Keep up the good work in spreading the Groovy Revolution! And, yeah, what a homey “communal home.” I am honored and feel so privileged to have been welcomed to join your Tribe’s wind-down and crashing at your lovely and comforting “crash-pad.” And please share my gratefulness with my other hosts and hostesses, your sister, your man Andy, and that cool, nice, and friendly housemate of yours, whose name I never caught (but his looks remind me of actor Jerry O’Connell Anyhoo, … Hey! Brainstorm! My digs are small, but what a trip it would be (MUTUALLY, I’d think) WAY cool for a smattering of your Tribe to crash at my pad some time (Hey! how ’bout following the tour of my Vietnam Era museum we’re planning?). Up in the morning, step out the front door, turn left, walk 5 minutes, and your toes are in the Atlantic Ocean. My most recent house guest (whom you, too, know and love) did just that! I say, follow in his footsteps, eh? Anyhoo, ….
    Edamame, ; )
