Because working on Broadway is just as glamorous as it sounds.
By Rachel James (Treasurer/Writer)
Working as a treasurer is filled with amusing stories. You learn some useful things and deal with a lot of... interesting people. Usually I keep most of these stories to myself, being the discretionary worker that I am. However, sometimes something so crazy, weird, ridiculous, and illogical happens that I must share it with the world.
And so... submitted for approval of The Midnight Society, I call this story:
Exquisite and Piercing
Two ladies enter the lobby. They race towards the doors of the theatre to find them locked. They spot the box office window and make their plea.
LADY #1: How do we get to the piercing parlor?
TREASURER: I’m sorry?
LADY #1: The sign out front says “Exquisite and piercing.” How do we get to the piercing parlor?
TREASURER: What are you talking about?
LADY #1: The blue sign out front that says “Exquisite and piercing.” There’s a piercing parlor here, right?
TREASURER: No. “Exquisite and piercing” is a review of our last show.
LADY #1 sighs heavily and exits.
LADY #2: Well, do you know of a piercing place around here?
End of scene.
