Remember in grade school when you learned how to spell the word embarrassed? Your teacher came up with THE COOLEST THING EVER to help you remember that the word has 2 R’s and 2 S’s: when people are embarrassed they get really red feel so stupid. And you were like, ahhh, I see what you did there. Not bad, Mrs. Cameron. Not bad.
I’d be willing to bet our dear Cobra Katie has a memory just like this, but she only has one memory of actually being embarrassed; and it didn’t happen in a spelling bee or in a school cafeteria. It happened, like, 6 months ago while we were knee-deep in the production of Nights in UltraViolet. At the age of 28, Katie Henner, dweller of NYC and London, master theatre producer, genius writer & sometimes burlesque-dancer, felt embarrassed for the first time ever.
You guys gotta read about this. It’s amazing.
