Strange Fruit

This will be short, because of the lateness of the hour, but I just got back from seeing literally the best Broadway show I've ever seen.

In a time when the sheerest dreck will tread the boards, it's nice to know that art can still be made, and that awards are occasionally worth the gilt. Audra McDonald played Billie Holiday, in all her ragged, stoned glory, and gutted me utterly.

I've never been so ashamed of being an American, and simultaneously glad to be a human being, as I was tonight.
