UPDATE: A source at Opera Colorado informs La Cieca that there is in fact no exodus currently in progress from the company’s costume shop. La Cieca apologizes for the confusion.
Earlier, La Cieca reported that her “mile-high informant” whispered that “Colorado Opera’s entire costume department just quit in a huff. Or was fired in a huff.” Apparently La Cieca was either misinformed or else misunderstood the tip she was given.
In any case, we continue with the latest installment of News of the Hard to Believe. America’s Singing Slab Nathan Gunn is quoted in the Chicago Tribune as saying, apparently with a straight face, “To be honest, I don’t think that much about how I look.”
No, John von Rhein wasn’t buying it either.
