Fibbing Friday — Theater Arts

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as hosts for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Today is Frank’s turn to host and here are his questions.

1. Who is standing around a cauldron at the beginning of “MacBeth?

The butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker.

2. What happens at the end of “Romeo and Juliet?

Juliet tells Romeo that she was pregnant and he abandons her.

3. What was “Les Misérables” about?

Seeking help in the form of psychotherapy.

4. Why did the Phantom wear a mask?

He didn’t want to be infected by the delta variant of COVID-19.

5. Which cat earned the right to go to the Heavyside Lair?

Sylvester after he caught and ate Tweety Bird.

6. “Chicago” wasn’t about women on death row in the 1920s. What was it about?

Deep dish pizza.

7. “West Side Story” was based on which of Shakespeare’s plays?

“Much Ado About Nothing.”

8. Which Disney animated movie turned Broadway musical was inspired by “Hamlet?

“Steamboat Willie.”

9. “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” wasn’t about a homicidal barber. What was it about?

A barber whose shop was on Fleet Street in downtown Boston who was known for his wicked good haircuts.

10. Where did “The King and I” take place?

In the queen’s chambermaid’s boudoir.

    We had similar thought processes on 4 and 8, and I nearly went with Much Ado About Nothing too!
